Pink Week

This week over at I  Faces it is Pink Week in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month!


Here is my picture for the week:


Ok, so this is not a great picture at all, obviously I have not retouched it or done anything to it. But it is still special to me.  This is my mom. In 2008 she was diagnosed with Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma and began months of chemotherapy.  She lost a lot of weight and there were times she was extremely sick!  Two weeks before this picture was taken she was declared to be cancer free and  given a clean bill of health! I love all the pink in it from her bandana to the cotton candy; and her pose is priceless! She is enjoying herself and life! Plus being at the fair with 3 of her grandkids probably isn’t hurting any either, especially since she is just a big kid herself!
