Tammy Miller is collecting your stories for her book, Pink Ribbon Stories: A Celebration of Life. Not sure what to say?  Tammy or a team member will interview you and write your story. The publication is due out this Summer with proceeds going to the PBCC.

We are looking for your stories, thoughts, and poems to encourage, inspire, and make you smile, from anyone whose life has been touched by breast cancer.  Since some people are not sure where to begin with their story, we are offering some questions you may consider:

  1. What did you learn through this process?
  2. What words of encouragement would you offer others?
  3. Is there anything you wish you knew before going through this?
  4. Is there anything you wish your doctor would have told you?
  5. Can you identify anything humorous that happened on this path to recovery?

These specific questions do not have to be in your story, but are being offered for consideration.

Submit your information to Tammy at: You can send it as a Word document (1,200 word max) or in the body of an e-mail. If you need assistance with the typing/telling of your story, please let Tammy know and someone will assist you with your submission.

Deadline for all submissions is June 1, 2011. All stories are subject to editing for space. Any questions, please contact Tammy at: or call (814) 360-4031.

  3. Nice post!! Very informative points mentioned in the blog post. Researchers are still not sure how to explain this difference. More
    research is needed to better understand the effect of the types of fat
    eaten and body weight on breast cancer risk.

  4. An incredibly trustworthy origin said Harry Reid will never relieve their taxation statements while she has certainly not given his or her total 10% (of full “increase”) tithe for the Cathedral connected with Jesus Christ involving Latter-Day Saints (LDS). rapid some sort of beliefs he gives together with Mitt Romney. In the event Harry Reid are not this type of despicable hypocirite he would release his tax statements to ensure the Bishop connected with his or her LDS Infirmary may detect if Harry completely lied in the course of his Brow Propose Employment interview some sort of forehead recommend being Mormon’s “admintence card” for you to holy Entereza règles.
