Fight against the breast cancer - personal story

After weeks of fashion overload by lots of reports on the
newest collections from 4 fashion weeks, Instagram diaries and
outfit posts, I want to make this post different than any other I've
written by now.
October is a very personal month for me because of couple of
reasons and they're: my own birthday, my grandpa's and little brother's
birthdays and this whole month is dedicated to the fight
against the breast cancer.
Unfortunately or luckily enough, breast cancer happened three times in
my family, all three times before my eyes.
My both grandmas had it, my mom had it and lots of other women I know
have suffered the breast cancer, but not all of them have survived.
Breast cancer seems to be increasing all the time and number of victims is
so high that it almost doesn't come as a surprise when you hear that someone
has been diagnosed with it...
It's a very nasty cancer and the fight is hard, but the ones that do get through it,
it changes them forever.
It's very, very important to do checks once a year to make sure that you're
fine, that there's no where that little sneaky lump which can be so harmful.

My both grandmas died of breast cancer, they've died in excruciating pain,
my mom is a breast cancer survivor and I've been through the whole period
with her, 6 years ago and it has made her my hero, to see her fight for life and
go through everything she had to go through with her head up high and
not giving up even for a second.
To see your mother loose her hair in chunks and then finally, have to shave
her hair off and watch her buy wig are those moments that made me be aware
of this disease more than ever.

Life is wonderful, it really is, it's up to you how you put things in perspective
and believe me, anything is possible, as well as it's possible to survive this
cancer, but rather prevent it by not stressing over everything, by eating well,
exercising, laughing, appreciating everything you have and living day by day,
not in past, not in future, but now, today because you can!

Also, remember to do anything you can to help all the women that are going
through this fight.


  1. Great post, my grandmother also had it long time ago, everyone should do the auto test and go to the doctor once a year, the most important thing is get it on time.

  2. My aunt has it at the moment. They have caught it early though. I've had lumps before, thankfully not cancer but it's very scary. I check every month for lumps now and so should evreyone!

  3. Great post!!!


  4. This is such a beautiful post and an excellent reminder to cherish everyday. You've reminded me to be thankful for everything beautiful that I have in my life. xx

  5. Stvarno mi je iskreno žao što je tvoja mama morala da prođe kroz to, a i ti sa njom, verujem da nije bilo lako. Moja baka je imala rak dojke takođe ali se izlečila, na svu sreću.

  6. This was beautiful, thank you for writing and sharing it. <3 It is crazy when you start to realize how many people in your life have been touched by cancer.

  7. Wow your mother is a true fighter,i'm glad she survived. and i'm sorry that both your grandmas died from this horrible disease. This is such an inspiring post :)

  12. Thanks for sharing your story. I have not personally been affected by anyone who has had breast cancer but there have horrible diseases in my family as well and I know how terrible it is watching the person you love have to go through such an ordeal. I hope you and your family continue to stay strong and positive! We need more upbeat attitudes like yours in the world!
