  1. Wow, great post!!! Thank you so much shearing this video!!

  2. Caryn, I saw you on Good Morning Connecticut this morning. Your strength is an inspiration but it is what you said that made me want to reach out to you. My mother is a breast cancer survivor, and she dreads the month of October. She finds all the pink and all the talk about breast cancer as a reminder of all she has been through. Our family realizes all the positive work that occurs in October and we are grateful for all the research that is funded, but it also a difficult time for some who have lived though it. I have never heard some one else express my mothers feelings and it was validating to hear she is not alone. Thank you for acknowledging all the emotions breast cancer awareness month brings.

    • Kathy, Thank you so much for reaching out. I’m glad that you appreciated the segment. There is so much good that awareness and fundraising campaigns bring to the local and global community. I definitely appreciate it. However, I just wanted everyone to know that it’s ok for anyone, especially survivors, to be overwhelmed (and/or feel any feeling) by all the attention and oftentimes difficulty it brings to us. I’m sending your mom lots of love this month. Sometimes knowing others feel the same way is helpful. xoxo

  3. Hello Caryn,
    Thank you for a wonderful video. Maybe i should start drinking warm water instead of the usual coffee. I even wanted to start walking every time when i get home. This is a very motivational video for me to start being healthy again.
