I’ve been absolutely honored to work with Dana Bledsoe, our Perricone MD Brand Ambassador and QVC On Air Host. I’m in complete awe of the grace and spirit she’s shown during her fight against Breast Cancer.
October has special significance for me as it is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. For all of us who have been touched by breast cancer, I wish you great strength. As my doctors said to me: “In one year, you’ll look back and say, ‘What was that all about?’ At the end of your treatment, know that you will gain clarity and insight. If I can share something that truly helped me with anyone going through this struggle, it is this: think of breast cancer as a chance to change the way you approach life. I often say to myself that yes, maybe I was supposed to change a long time ago, but I didn’t need to be hit over the head! But, maybe I did. Your outlook is your reality and I have to tell you, I never saw having cancer as bad. I never asked, ‘Why me?’ I didn’t have a pity party. I told myself, ‘You’re allowed two minutes a day to cry. After that, be strong for yourself and for the others who love you.’
I would love to help women gain back their days and their health. Incorporate Dr. Perricone’s lifestyle tips, which includes eating well, enjoy your time and every day, no matter how bad you feel, try and get dressed up. Remember, you must never give in to breast cancer.
