"We're creating a sisterhood where it's understood that even after active treatment ends and physical scars heal, cancer can continue to shape our lives -- from fears of recurrence, fatigue, coping with the side effects of treatment, negative changes in body-image, diminishing libido…even a deep desire to make huge life changes resulting from the crystal clear clarity you gain of how precious our time on Earth can be, especially when having been dealt a cancer Dx and irrevocable life-time membership in the cancer club no one willingly joins." - Michelle Slade
Hello, my name is Michelle Slade. With my courage up thinking of the strength of Survivor Sistahs taken too soon, determined to make a difference out of my own journey by moving people to meaningful action beyond showing pink ribbon solidarity, I put Mariposa MoXie formally out in the world on the eve of "pinktober 2013."
