One of the most inspirational women I know is my sister-in-law. She is a mother of five, a nurse, wife, friend, sister and breast cancer survivor.
My sister-in-law does not inspire me because she’s a survivor, but because of the journey she took so I would be able to call her one. I knew a lot of other inspirational women who didn’t survive the disease.
All of them fought hard, through pain, nausea, weakness, hair loss, hospitalizations, infections and surgeries. The least I can do to honor them is give a little back to their cause.
Each year, I participate in the Komen Race for the Cure, but Hanes has made it possible for me to show my support more than just one day a year. They have a new program which allows people to design and buy their own shirts to support the fight against breast cancer.
