October is officially Breast Cancer Awareness month and those whose mothers, daughters, sisters or friends who have battled breast cancer understand how important it is to continue to bring awareness and support. Years ago my mother was diagnosed with breast cancer and it turned our family upset down. Upon hearing the news I headed to the Bodhi Tree spiritual book store in Los Angeles to pick up magical crystals for her. This actually began my personal journey into metaphysics as we realized a medical approach along with a spiritual approach was necessary. Well, it’s been about 28 years and my mother is in excellent health and continues to give back to the cancer community. She is a supporter of the Cincinnati Chapter of the Wellness Center as well as giving of her personal time to lend a sympathetic ear and heartfelt caring to anyone going through this illness. When we decided to write a mother/daughter book based on her dinner parties in Aspen called Thursdays with Mom & Michael: A daughter’s loving tribute to her mother’s weekly dinner parties in Aspen she unselfishly wanted ALL AUTHOR proceeds to go directly to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation.
It was important to my mother that her monies go to support RESEARCH and we knew Evelyn Lauder whose organization was at the forefront in research for breast cancer. Sadly, Evelyn (she wrote the introduction to our book) did not win her battle with cancer but her powerful organization marches on.
