Translucent Chocolates and the American Cancer Society: Aligned and Working Together for Strides Against Breast Cancer

Contributing to the continuation of research, and in a relentless drive to support the American Cancer Society’s fundraising programs, Strides Against Breast Cancer, we are now selling the “2016 Pink Ribbon Mix” to help raise awareness about early detection and treatment. Please help the American Cancer Society reach their 2016’s Goals in the “Strides Against Breast Cancer” campaign. To order, call our office: 312-404-1812, Nicole in our CA office 312-550-4656, or Melanie at the American Cancer Society office: 850-244-3813. The first 50 boxes each week are shipped at no cost to you and upon request your box will be delivered with a 10$ gift card compliments of Translucent Chocolates.

Each box is in memory of my godmother, Beverly Adrians. She bravely survived 10+ years of almost monthly treatments, and she did so without complaining.  Her outcome could have been different – if the lump in her breast had been properly biopsied and read as malignant by pathology.  Had the specimen that was sent for the second opinion as requested been valid, was it transported correctly?

Six months plus later, at her follow up, the “lymph node lump” was identified to be Breast Cancer.  Stage 3. It had spread to a dozen other areas, each required removal and treatment. Who knows where else it had spread but was dormant, how many other locations the cancer had seeped into, or how long in between each treatment regimen she had to recuperate.

Bev’s daughters were both POSITIVE on the BRAC Test.  My mom’s other sister went through breast cancer treatment this past year, and is in remission. We all have a story. A sister, mother, daughter or aunt that are receiving their diagnosis every day. There is a cure.  Early detection is key and makes it easier to treat. Until all are aware, keep reaching!!

There Is Hope

Medicine has come a long way.  I work in the field of Oncology.  I see first hand, that typically the best chance a patient has of survival is their duration of personal hope.  How positive their individual outlook is, and the vibe of others beliefs, daily.  I have been witness to how a mind over matter, in this field, often is the defining difference.

The remission rates are improving as oncology treatments and medicine continue to advance.  In the face of fear, by positively confronting the feelings that any diagnosis of Cancer bring, we can continue to help others by to keeping alive the very real thing called hope, there is hope.
