I have to admit, I am pretty fortunate. None of my direct family has been touched by breast cancer. However, not too terribly long ago, a former friend's mother was fighting for her life. She had beaten breast cancer once before, but it came back. Rather than deal with all of the treatments and chemo, she bravely opted to have a double mastectomy to kick cancer's butt once and for all.
I remember the fear that I felt knowing that this amazing and kind woman was once again fighting for her life. I remember shedding tons of tears while I waited for updates after her surgery. I also remember the huge sense of relief when I got the news that she was all clear and no more cancer was detected in her body. Even though I am no longer in contact with the family for reasons I still can't completely wrap my head around, I still think of them often, and consider the courage of this woman completely inspirational.
It's no secret that breast cancer is a horrible disease and changes the lives of so many women and those that love them every single year. This disease is all too common, and it touches people from all walks of life. Breast cancer doesn't discriminate. The key to ultimately defeating breast cancer is early detection and of course, research and awareness.
Recently, I headed over to my local Circle K and noticed that they carry mike's hard pink lemonade. This seasonal beverage, available from now till around October, is a great way to unwind and even help fund breast cancer research. Since 2009, mike's has donated over ONE MILLION DOLLARS to breast cancer research. Pretty cool, right?
Now I have to admit, I am not much of a drinker. I only drink a few times a year, or when I have wine reviews to do. I don't like beer at all, and generally prefer fruity, girly drinks. So of course, this fizzy, pink concoction was right up my alley. It was light and refreshing, with the perfect balance of sweetness and tart. I would definitely drink it again, especially since I know my purchase helps to fund such an important cause.
So if you're looking for a way that you can unwind and relax, definitely check out mike's hard pink lemonade while supplies last. These delicious drinks are available at Circle K and wherever mike's products are sold. And remember, your purchase helps courageous women battling breast cancer as they "fight like a girl". Now that is something I feel good about, don't you?
You can connect with mike’s on Twitter, Facebook and their website.
