Everyone is affected by cancer in one way or another.  Friends, family and even closer to home, cancer seems to be all around us lately.  We are proud once again to help spread the word about Hanes partnership with Susan G. Komen for the Cure to raise money for breast cancer research.  

Hanes recently launched an online Design and Buy program that allows visitors to design their own T-shirts adorned with messages of hope, love and support. Hanes will donate 10 percent of the proceeds from all custom T-shirts through the Design and Buy program to Komen for the Cure. 

Also, Hanes will offer its “Pink Collection” of panties, bras, socks, and tees designed to create awareness for the cause. As part of the collection, Hanes spokesperson and film star Melina Kanakaredes has designed three T-shirts meant to inspire and encourage others to join her in the fight against breast cancer.  For more information, go to

My Grandmother is a breast cancer survivor. Diagnosed in early 2007, she underwent a totally mastectomy, 2 round of chemo, and radiation treatment to rid of 67 year old body of Cancer. Today, she is still a happy, beautiful, thriving mother of 4, grandmother of 8, and great grandmother of 6. Through her entire ordeal, she prayed that god would grant her healing and peace and that she'd be at least healthy enough to enjoy her family for as long as he saw fit. She is such a wonderful inspiration to me and my family in all ways, but since her triumphant fight against breast cancer, we appreciate her firey and faithful spirit even more than ever.

I, along with my three other siblings, my mom, my 3 boys and my uncle are the surviving relatives of my Father who passed away after a courageous and valiant battle with brain cancer this past July. From the initial diagnosis he never once questioned "why me?", rather he submitted entirely to God's will and as the Book of Common Prayer so eloquently states in Evening Family Prayer, "always live in such as state that you may never be afraid to die, so that living and dying we might be thine." Because my father fought his cancer alternatively (avoiding conventional chemo and Radiation that offered less than a 5% chance he would live more than 2 years) instead doing everything from juicing, colonics, 80 straight days of all natural chemo (iv's of Laetrile, Vitamin C, DMSO), many supplements and much more, he lived the last 9 months as one of the healthiest persons' alive. The last month of his life as his tumor reoccurred w/ a vengence, he was able to be @ his home surrounded by loved ones. So as a surviving daughter, i have memories to cherish, ideals and qualities inherited from my father that helped shape me to pass on to my children, all the while looking towards that great day we will spend eternity together with our beloved saviour.

Last year my mother underwent a hysterectomy that did not go well. They nicked her bladder and she suffered an infection. This led to further investigation of all the surrounding areas and it was discovered that she had a spot on her kidney. It was cancer. They removed the kidney and thus far she has remained cancer free. She now has frequent check ups to keep an eye out for the cancer returning. We have much to celebrate this Thanksgiving.

My mother-in-law passed away 2 years ago from a brain tumor. She was diagnosed in January and passed away 9 months later leaving 9 children, 40+ grandchildren and her first great-grandchild. I had only been her daughter in law 2 years and ache now to know her better. She gives me inspiration to survive through the stories I hear, and through the example she was as she fought such a difficult battle during those last nine months.

I am an 8 1/2 year survivor of Breast Cancer. My family inspired me to fight. At the time of diagnosis I was a wife, mother of two teen age daughters and caregiver for my mom. I didn't have time to have cancer. I did what I had to do. I fought. It was not an easy road for me - chemo was the most difficult thing I have ever endured. My body rebelled but I hung in there and made it. I write about my survival and my life after breast cancer at Life does go on. We have adopted two children and help raise a one year old. It has been a bumpy road but also a very blessed road. We did it together as a family.

Both of my grandmas are breast cancer survivors.
I'm also a surgical nurse, and most days I have patients undergoing surgery for either breast or colon cancer. I applaud them and pray for their healing.
