On women and strength
I recently came across this video by Kelly Corrigan, founder of Circus of Cancer, who was diagnosed with Stage III breast cancer in August 2004, just days before her oldest daughter turned three. Her family was surrounded with support and kindness for months, carrying her through eight cycles of chemotherapy, a lumpectomy and two months of radiation. The meaningful and creative ways her friends found to support her was the inspiration for this site.
In this video Kelly reads a wonderful piece about friendship, and how we women can all support each other through thick and thin. You don’t have to have had experience of cancer to appreciate this video. I pass it on in celebration of all women and friendship.
