A GIGANTIC thank you to all participants of Saturday’s Tweetstorm and/or Thunderclap!
While we did not get #BreastCancerRealityCheck trending, we did make an impact. Over 3,000 tweets last Saturday, far exceeding last year’s 1,000! We couldn’t have done it without you!
Of course, we (@barbieslosingit, @bccww, @abcdiagnosis) keep checking in on the hashtag in Twitter, and we are encouraged to see everyone keeping it going, continuing to share all the realities of this horrible disease we share. By continuing to shine a light on these realities, we remind the world that the sanitized story repeated ad nauseam is FAR from the whole picture.
Keep sharing YOUR reality, don’t let anyone stop you. You are NOT being depressing, or merely complaining. You are telling YOUR truth, and letting others who may get sucker punched in the future with a diagnosis, that they will not be alone.
