“There have been very good parts and very bad parts, but in the end, I love life. Every night before I sleep, I ask God for three more years, so that I can make it an even one hundred. Then I recite a blessing that my mother gave me when I left her in Poland. It was the last time I saw her. The blessing is much more powerful in Hebrew, but it says: ‘Wherever you go, may people always recognize that you have a beautiful heart.’”

With this being the first day of “pinktober” this is me with no left breast at 19 years old because of Breast cancer. I could post a picture of a teddy bear with a cute pink ribbon on it. However, Breast cancer isn’t cute. I’m also Not saying this against the people that have posted pink ribbons. I’m not against pink ribbons by any means. I don’t expect anyone to post a picture like this. This is Breast Cancer awareness month and I think showing the struggle that I had to go through will show awareness. Also show that breast cancer isn’t a pink ribbon. #breastcancer #pinktober #october #cancer #breastcancerawarness #scarproject #breastcancerisntapinkribbion #awarness #mastectomy #chemo

Look to see if that company is honestly sending money for breast cancer before you buy. Companies like to throw pink and pink ribbons on their product just so you buy it. Some might give 0.1% or some don’t even give anything. #thinkbeforeyoupink #breastcancer #cancer #pink

Besides #thescarproject’s tag line that “Breast cancer is not a pink ribbon” this is pretty much our official stance on cancer. Pictured with me, SCAR photographer David Jay, and SCAR girls Sara aka “Bartowski” and Eliza. We are standing in front of the F*ck Cancer Posse SCAR pic.

"What’s wrong with death sir? What are we so mortally afraid of? Why can’t we treat death with a certain amount of humanity and dignity, and decency, and God forbid, maybe even humor. Death is not the enemy, gentlemen. If we’re going to fight a disease, let’s fight one of the most terrible diseases of all, indifference."

I don’t think we get cancer to learn life lessons, and I don’t believe that people die young because God needs another angel. I think it’s just bullshit, and I think on some level we all know that.
