A Simple Pink Ribbon
The Pink Ribbon is symbolic of Feminity due to its pink color and soft
rounded contours. It could signify womanhood and sisterhood...it is
representative of two arms embracing, crossed in a soft and gentle gesture
of caring. It can be said that the inside space of the ribbon is shaped like
an inverted tear drop, because Breast Cancer can turn your life upside
down and for all the sadness that this disease can bring.
It could also be said that at the point where the ribbon overlaps, it holds
a space for hope. A place of determination and spirit to quietly rest.
It is a sign of strength of the heart and soul. It keeps out bitterness and
despair. The tails of the ribbon flare gently outward indicative of the
direction that we must move in, to provide research to conquer this disease.
It tells the story of persistence and patience, of assertiveness and of ability,
of connecting and conducting.
It is not just a simple pink ribbon, is it?
I will wear my pink ribbon to honor every woman I know who has faced
the challenge of Breast Cancer and for every woman that I will never
know as well.

My mother found this poem on a brochure while visiting her oncologist and
she wanted me to share it with all of you. I never thought that this simple pink ribbon
would be so meaningful to my life and my family and that's why...
