Welcome to Reflections On Pink!
My name is Christine Tryon. My friends call me: Chris.
Who am I and why should you care about what I have to say? I am a wife, mother, sister, daughter, friend and a member of four sisterhoods: The sisterhood of of God, the sisterhood of the Relief Society of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and a breast cancer thriver of over five years. (See my comments below for the fourth sisterhood.) I have also been researching natural and alternative remedies for over two decades.
I am also the Independent Author of my breast cancer memoir, Dear Sister, Today Is…It is about my personal journey with breast cancer; the importance of faith, family and friendship; the lesson’s that I learned and what I wish I had known beforehand.
The purpose of my website is to empower you discover the many shades of pink and to help you untangle the many myths surrounding breast cancer and many other diseases. Most of my posts will be about how to help you discover your Passion for living; uncover your true Identity; the Natural remedies that have been working for me and Keeping it simple to inspire you to at least give a few of my suggestions a try.
Let’s untangle some myths together as we do some ‘reflecting.’
I am going to include one of the Reflection’s that inspired me to start this blog.
When I was diagnosed with breast cancer almost five and a half years ago. I decided NOT to have reconstructive surgery. (To find out why, click here to listen to a radio show interview with Carol Graham called: Never, Ever Give Up Hope!
“I wore fake boobs for four years because I wanted to look and feel ‘normal’. I was side-lined with a shoulder injury a little over a year ago. I have stopped wearing them. Nobody noticed! (At least not the people that truly matter.)
I never asked the Lord why I was diagnosed with breast cancer. I KNEW WHY! The number one reason was to help you-my dear sisters! I want you to learn from my experiences. (I did ask the Lord why I suffered with the shoulder injury for almost two months. His response was: STOP HIDING!“
I am no longer hiding and neither should you! ALL of us can learn from each other. Why suffer if you don’t have to? Feel free to share your experiences too so all of us can benefit.
Last, but certainly not least, I am a member of a wonderfully supportive fourth group of sisters called: Flat and Fabulous. They have a Facebook group that is almost 3,000 women strong. We are on a mission to help women untangle the pro’s and con’s of reconstructive surgery and to encourage them to discover their true Iden-titty.
Won’t you join me on my continued journey?
Enjoy your day!
