After a bout with breast cancer and a mastectomy of the right breast on the 19th January 2004, they have now found cancer in my left breast, so that means another mastectomy. This time though, they can't do the tram flap reconstruction which I'd found such a painful ordeal the last time.
So my request is this, on the 11th February, which is the date of my surgery, please where somethink pink to show your support for those who have been inflicted by breast cancer.
((((Big hugs, Cindy))))
Wishing you all the best and a speedy recovery.
wow, im sorry to hear that. i hope you have a speedy recovery.
I always have my pink ribbon pin close by. I'll definitely be thinking of you. Stay strong. Sorry you have to go through this again.
so sorry cindy, m prayers with you! hope all turns out well
I'm so sorry, Cindy. I'll definitely keep you in my thoughts and prayers.
hope it all goes well for you-have a speedy recovery and come back soon.
good luck with your operation - yes, i will wear something pink and also wish you well
Count on it - I look good in pink. Have a brief hospital visit and a speedy recovery.
Wishing you all the best. I'll be wearing pink (about half of my wardrobe is pink).
Imagine yourself being carried on a wave of good wishes - and think of Mark Knowles in pink.
So sorry to hear that news Cindy, but I'm sure that you will get through this and soldier on successfully, like the champ that you are.
I will also be thinking of you on the day... and unlike Mark, I will get my own stains out of my Pink Shirt... All The Best.. You Take Care Mate!
I am not allowed to use the washing machine.
I've found that if you simply use your hands, cold water (and maybe Pink or Yellow Gloves) and a good stain remover - you can get stains out without the need for:
- a wife
- a wife's permission
- a washing machine
- an excuse
Here is too a speedy recovery!
and can we put this one in Marks' hair?
You mean you have never experienced the Latex Power of Pink Gloves?
You Have To 'Splash Out' in Life Sometimes Mark
Thanks guys! The bonus will be I'll be off work for 5 weeks, so can write some hubs!
At least this time I'll have family and friends around me. Last time, was just my kids and I.
Mark - don't let Pearldiver try and talk you into doing your own washing! It's a horrible time-consuming job! But he's a kiwi and the men there enjoy working in the house!
Cindy--I will for sure wear pink on the 11th...
My mother had this done when she was in her 30's, and is now healthier at 70 than I am, lol...
Sending best wishes and prayers for a speedy recovery--I'm so glad you'll be surrounded by family!
I'm sure sorry to hear you're heading back into the ring Cindy. Here's to your rapid recovery and some more great hubs whilst you're feet are kept off the floor.
And yes - I'll wear my pink sweater. Just so you know ... I look horrible in pink but for your good health and breast cancer awareness I'll spend the day listening to folks saying 'you soooooo don't suit pink'
As for the guys waffling on about their laundering prowess - whutever
I'm sorry to hear that you have to have another surgery and wishing the very best for you. I'll be using my pink handbag.
I am sorry to hear that you need to go back back for surgery. I hope everything works alright for you.
I'll be wearing pink and I'll be thinking about you that day.
All the best for you,
sending you warm and healing wishes. I'll make a note and post it on my desk, one of my favorite tops is pink! I'll wear it just for you. xo [maybe the guys should post pics that day.. ]
...i'll mark my calendar Cindy...good thoughts for you and your family....
Cindy, I'll wear my old and awful pink scarf all day (this isn't my color, but I'll do it for you). Wish you very fast recovery and please maybe you like to write a hub about this experience ... ? Maybe?
My thoughts are with you! To go through that not only once, but twice is truly hard to imagine. Pink it is!
My thoughts and prayers are with you Cindy. Be sure to stay in touch.
Thanks for the thoughts, felt quite down yesterday, thinking they're slowly burying me bit by bit. First the right breasdt, then the thyroid and now the left breast. But read this thread again and felt much better!
Hi Cindy, This week's HubMob is going to be pink again, just for you
Cindy, Wishing you speedy recovery!Pink surely on 11 th. Praying for you!
Hi Cindy, Hope all went well with your surgery yesterday. My sister had a mastectomy three years ago and appears to be doing well. She had chemo and radiation, but elected to not have reconstruction. My thoughts are with you and I hope all goes well for you.
Same here too Cindy. I wore my pink sweater all day (looked a pickle in it too but hey ho) and did think about you and how you were doing. Plus I had to explain a couple of times why I was wearing it - it's a little ... small
Lots and lots of happy, huggy vibes and I hope - like many other Hubbers - that you're soon back to normal. Bestest, biggest wishes - get well soon
Cindy - I have been thinking about you and hoping that all was well with you, at least as well as can be expected.
Much love and healing thoughts to you.
Hey ya Cindy... Many thoughts of you and hope you have done well at this stop on your journey to greatness. The path is timeless and well traveled by many special people, just like you. When you look closely you can see that from the dust that rises with each step you take. Conserve your strength and store your positivity so that you can draw on it during the desolate stages of this path. You have a long way to go and you will need a smile every day to make sure that you never let the terrain beat you on the hottest days. Be as brave as you can and if you need anymore than that... well, consider this.. we all love you here and you have and continue to be a beacon for many... and that new lawn mower that you had your eye on.... sorry I got it first! Be Well mate!
My thought were with you yesterday while I was wearing my pink shirt. Wishing you a speedy recovery.
Here's my pink pick to help you kick that damned cancer to the curb, Cindyvine!
Cindy, so sorry to hear that you have to deal with this awful thing. Sincerest wishes that your surgery went well and that you're back on your feet in no time.
You know what they say - no photo - didn't happen. Hope everything went well and you are doing OK.
Who would have guessed you look so fetching in pink? Of course, the beret really completes the ensemble.
She did post up on FB the day after that she was over the op - alive and kinda kicking.
Look good in pink MK but did you had to do the beret? Had a lol moment. Love the blue polo pony though
I shoulda posted one of me in mine. Could have gone the whole tight sweater comp. I looked ridiculous
Shoulda trimmed the beard though.
Me - not you.
Puppies squirming to get out the basket. I dress like a baggage. I look (apparently) like I'm always walking a dog and got dressed in the dark.
Thing is - the above is about right
A few of my friends call me an Ewok, one or two other's a scarecrow. I love my friends.
frogdropping -- I don't think a photo could possibly do justice to your vivid and colorful decription
Hey MM ... thankyou. A photo would definitely be unjustified. Probs crash the site
This cruel world, so much beauty and so much suffering, who needs all that?
Somehow I missed this thread. Hope Cindy is okay.
