Metastatic Breast Cancer Awareness Day

Today, October 13 is Metastatic Breast Cancer Awareness Day. The whole point of designating a day to this is to bring more attention to the needs of those living with advanced breast cancer.

Thank you for sharing that with us, Daria. I think the message I got from that video was live your life, do what you love to do. and never give up.

Hello, Thank you so much for having this video available. I am one of the 4 women , the oldest one, playing the organ...my therapy for dealing with this disease. (I will be 80 next month) I hope this video gives the message that we are out there, trying to live what life we have left, with gratitude for each day. By the way, I have 2 videos on YouTube, playing the organ, if you would care to view it. It's under Marilyn Speedy.
Thanks again for posting the video!
