I didn’t get to post as much as I would have liked this past month. I’ve been getting extremely busy. I restarted physical therapy at SHARP REES-STEALY to get a different perspective on my personal rehab. It reinforced the fact that my “core” is not stable. The strength is there, but that is a moot point if I’m not stable. Proximal Stability before distal mobility! We are working on isolating the core muscles because they are easily overlooked/ neglected. The problem is that I find those exercises boring.
Anyways, a friend of mine took the reins on a mohawk brain tumor awareness campaign, Hawktober and I’ve been helping to promote it. The first week we got a few people to rock hawks. We think mohawks represent the fighting attitude it takes to rally people to fight these horrible diseases. A mohawk definitely grabs people’s attention! With a mohawk, you can see easily the battle scars on our heads from brain surgery! To honor our Breast Cancer sisters, we decided to do pink highlights to show our support for breast cancer patients since October is also breast cancer awareness month! We actually went up to Hollywood to do the pink highlights. I decided to honor my aunt that passed away from breast cancer by dying my mohawk pink! A few of my friends dyed pink highlights in their hair to honor their breast cancer sisters! BIG PROPS to Floyd’s 99 Rock N Roll Barbershop! They have been extremely helpful in promoting our efforts! On Thursday night we will be celebrating International TUMORS SUCK Day. This is a day we created to celebrate life!
Over the last few years, we have met tumor/cancer survivors from all over the world from North America to Australia to Africa to Europe to Asia. To unify the international battle against all forms of tumors/cancer we created a day when everyone can voice their displeasure with ALL FORMS OF TUMORS/CANCER. INTERNATIONAL TUMORS SUCK DAY was created to express this sentiment. All that it requires is printing out the logo and posting a picture with it on facebook. It is easy to participate.
1. Print out the TUMORS SUCK LOGO.
2. SHARE A PICTURE OF THE TUMORS SUCK LOGO ON THE TUMORS SUCK FACEBOOK PAGE.
Please support our efforts to make tumor/cancer survivoship a global issue! CONSIDER making a small donation or becoming a leader and joining us in this epic battle. PLEASE HELP US FIGHT ALL FORMS OF TUMORS, BUT MOST IMPORTANTLY PASS THIS PAGE ON!!! THIS CAMPAIGN IS BEING LEAD BY A SMALL BUT PASSIONATE GROUP OF TUMOR/CANCER SURVIVORS! WE CANNOT FIGHT THIS BATTLE ALONE!!! PLEASE JOIN US IN DECLARING “TUMORS SUCK!”
