Feeling the Feels (It's Okay) & Happening's This Spring

March is such a hopeful month. If you're anything like us, a little bit of sunshine and a bright blue sky really warms our spirit. Spring is almost upon us, and while we are constantly have cancer lingering somewhere in our mind, the season of flowers tends to make it easier to forget about our worries...even if it's only for a short moment. Yesterday, today and every day in the future, we're here to remind you that it's okay to feel things, good and bad—the heat of a hot shower of your sun-kissed cheeks after a day spent in the garden (it's okay), anger and hate for the things you can't control in life (it's okay), laughter when someone tells an inappropriate joke (it's okay), pain when the chemo makes your bones ache (it's okay), love for the person and people who gives you that extra hug squeeze when you need it (it's okay), regret for words you wish you had a chance to say (it's okay), happiness for just being here...being alive...living to see another spring, another bloom, another afternoon shower. We will not let breast cancer control us. We will not let chemotherapy break us. Feel the feels however you want to feel them. Keep going—you are so much stronger than you think. And if you're reading this for a friend or loved one who has been diagnosed with breast cancer and undergoing chemotherapy during these difficult times, consider sending them a care package. Because you care, and they deserve to know that.


Unfortunately, COVID is still a thing but the cancer community is standing strong as we continue to raise money and gather—safely and efficiently. The American Cancer Society has provided us with a list of cancer events and fundraisers taking place this spring. Spoiler Alert: April is Relay for Life Month! Let's start with our founding state of Georgia, shall we? Without further ado, here are all of cancer happenings this spring.
