Cancer Poem

Motivating Poem About Breast Cancer Awareness

I have a friend whose daughter has to recite a poem, and they wanted it to be on breast cancer awareness. I also have a friend who has fought the battle with breast cancer and has won, with the exception of losing both of her breasts in the process. It is a daily fight that she faces with the hope, love and encouragement of those around her. She is my inspiration for this poem.

Think Pink!


Published by Family Friend Poems October 2015 with permission of the Author.

Each month be sure to check your breasts
To ensure there aren't any unwanted guests.

Cancer's next victim I will not be.
Checking yourself is the key.

Lumps and bumps I hope not to find.
Terrible tricks cancer plays on the mind.

A doctor's visit once a year.
Will help to be sure you're in the clear.

The battle with cancer many have lost.
Not checking monthly isn't worth the cost.

October we celebrate those who fought and won,
And searching for a cure is never done.

You could be next if you don't stop and think.
October...breast cancer awareness...yes...I will think pink!
