The Story Of My Breast Cancer: The Rose And I.
This is my rose inspiration image. I was walking through my neighborhood the day I learned I had breast cancer and this rose in one of the gardens I passed by inspired me to do an art and journaling cancer related event timeline. I loved the delicate folds of that rose and its light but bright perfectly pink color, representative of breast cancer (although on the light side). Even though, this rose is beautiful, one can see spots that don't seem to belong as well as something lurking under its delicate petal as represented by its stamen, in a way its own "cancer". This rose became my symbol, my banner for this fight. It's not perfect in every way, like me. Its story became related to mine. I will share that journey with you all. Hope sharing my journey with you will be ok and helpful.
