On Mondays we wear pink

In college my sororities philanthropy was the Susan G Komen breast cancer foundation. Each year we raised thousands and thousands of dollars. If I remember right we had the number one fundraiser for all the Greek houses on campus! Go Zetas! I always thought it was a great philanthropy to have and for such a good cause.........breast cancer is everywhere. Everyone knows someone who has had to battle this sucky disease. 1 in 8 women will be diagnosed in their lifetime. Most cases occur in women over 50.

Even with these stats, never did I think someone so close to me would be diagnosed with it (I think it was more wishful thinking). Unfortunately it is now affecting someone I love very much. So starting today, every Monday until her treatment is done, Kylie and I will be wearing pink in support of this special amazing person as she fights her way through treatment and kicks cancer's ass! So this is why.....on Mondays we wear pink :)
