“Giving the utmost of herself to three absorbing interests [marriage, motherhood, career]… was a problem for a superwoman, and a job for a superwoman, and only some such fabled being could have accomplished it with success.” – Storm Jameson

  Hey luvs, I wanted to share someone with you today. Her name is Lacy Verne .. if that name doesn’t ring a bell, try thinking about a Store named Xxxtasi, now rebranded in a merger of three creative and talented  females in the SL clothing industry named X3tinction {Fb / Inworld Location / Mp} . There is alot of fight wrapped up in this gorgeously unique avatar that transcends into the real world that has not only inspired myself as an individual but surely many others she’s come into contact with. I took a bit of time to speak with Lacy this week to round up the “What’s up ZiZi?” Think pink campaign. Here’s what she had to say;

          When I was 24 years old I found a breast lump. I was very worried and immediately went to see my doctor. I have no family history of breast cancer but I was anxious just the same. I was referred to a surgeon who performed a fine needle aspiration and reassured me repeatedly that my chances of having cancer were extremely low. I was later informed that the lump was a fibroadenoma which is benign and common in young women.

….I remember looking at the Impressionist painting next to the examining table and feeling like I was falling. It seemed less and less real. Then some encouraging words were offered- “there’s still a chance it could be benign”… Later I sat staring at the mammogram thinking how the mass looked like a great big snowball.

…I went back to school and told my nursing classmates that I had cancer

A Bridge to pass is just another obstacle

Cancer is a bridge, that some have to pass,
Some go all the way across, but some fall along the way.
It’s tragic those who fall, when they have come so far.
They fought such a courageous battle.
But the war has been won. They fell off.

Some make it across, They are the lucky ones.
The ones who fight so hard and never give yo.
They make it across. They win the fight.
They win the battle. They win the war.

Cancer is just an obstacle.
We all have to stick together to pass it.
If we can find a cure, millions of lives will be saved.
Humankind will be able to find a cure with the right funding.

Help me fight cancer
Help my friends, ,their families and my family.
Help fight cancer. You will be rewarded.

“When I came to this country in 1958, to be a dying patient in a medical hospital was a nightmare. You were put in the last room, furthest away from the nurses’ station. You were full of pain, but they wouldn’t give you morphine. Nobody told you that you were full of cancer and that it was understandable that you had pain and needed medication.”

I Am Not A Victim Of Breast Cancer

I am not a victim of breast cancer. I am experiencing breast cancer.
I am not dying. I am living.
I am not curing. I am healing and restoring.
I am not fearing. I am loving and trusting.
I am not fighting. I am ceasing all hostility and conflict.
I am not weak or diminished. I am strong and whole and complete.
I am not coping or hoping. I am giving and receiving, creating and conceiving.
I am not crying. I am laughing until the tears run down my leg.
My body is not my enemy. My body is my loving friend, my gentle guide.
My life story is not history. My life story is legendary.
I am not powerless. I am powerful beyond measure.
I am not a drop in the ocean. I am the ocean in a drop.
I am not scattered. I am aligned.
I am not being destroyed. I am building my sacred stature.
I am not trapped or caged. I am as free as a feathery fledgling.
My body is not a muddy puddle of despair. My body is a hallowed temple of spirit.
I am not filled with shadows. I am filled with illuminating light.
I am not a passive puppet. I am an active advocate and enthusiastic participant.
I am not tired and bested. I am tied and invested.
I am not without a voice or meaning or purpose. I am an angelic messenger.
I am not discarded. I am needed.
I am not descending, dragging or faltering. I am consistently inspiring and uplifting.
I am not dwelling in the reflections of the past or the projections of the future. I am joyfully dancing naked in the unfolding mystery of the present moment.
I am not alone or abandoned. I am infinitely connected by the soft, silky vibrational threads of love.
I will not forget. I will remember.
I will not burn out. I will sparkle forever.

~ Twin Pink ~

” Breast cancer alone kills some 458,000 people each year, according to the World Health Organization, mainly in low- and middle-income countries. It has got to be a priority to ensure that more women can access gene testing and lifesaving preventive treatment, whatever their means and background, wherever they live.” – Angelina Jolie

” Twin Kristin and Maren Hallenga are identical – but there is one devastating difference.

Aged 23, Kris found out she had incurable breast cancer, which has since spread to her spine, pelvis, hips and liver.

Maren is cancer-free and fortunately, as the twins, now 28, do not carry one of the faulty genes that mean a higher risk of the disease, she is at no higher risk of developing it than anyone else.

But that does not stop her wondering: ‘Why not me?’

Today, to mark the second week of The Sun and CoppaFeel!’s Check ’em Tuesday campaign, Maren — who founded the charity with her sister — tells her story.

BEING identical twin sisters, Kris and I have grown up living very similar lives.

We had the same friends, same interests, looked very similar and spent almost every hour of every day together.

So to get a phone call from her on February 19, 2009, telling me she had breast cancer was unfathomable and numbing.

My feelings were a combination of anger — due to that fact she’d been told that her symptoms were “nothing to worry about” for so long — and sheer fear…… “
