YoTrip Presents A Poetic Expression “I Cannot But If I Could…”

I Cannot But If I Could…

I cannot speak your pain
I cannot speak your pain
I cannot speak your pain
I cannot even imagine what it means to hear those words
Those words
Those words
Those words
You have BREAST CANCER
CANCER OF THE BREAST
CANCER IN YOUR CHEST
CANCER yes BREAST CANCER
CANCER no BREAST CANCER
I cannot hear your pain
I cannot hear your pain
I cannot hear your pain
It came like a thief in the night no warning
No alarm tripped to alert you of its arrival
Never made a sound above a whisper, yet it’s results speaks volumes
I cannot feel your pain
I cannot feel your pain
I cannot feel your pain
The perilous poison crept in like the invasion of the body snatchers
Cancer connected itself to one of the life centers of your body, your breast
Cancer grabbed you and sought to hold you hostage
I cannot see your pain
I cannot see your pain
I cannot see your pain
Cancer is not always visible to those looking outside in
Your courage to go on, gives you strength when your body is weak and wants to give up
What appears to be perfection resting upon your chest is the pathway to your pain
I cannot heal your pain
I cannot heal your pain
I cannot heal your pain
The sad sickness of Cancer it never looks the same one from another
The Oncologist determine a treatment plan radiation, chemotherapy, medication or just cutting cancer out of your body
It is your faith in the great Physician that helps you, that holds you, that heals you

But if I could…
If I could speak your pain I would cry out to God on your behalf
If I could hear your pain I would tell it to be silent and never to utter a word again
If I could feel your pain I would take it on so you could rest
If I could heal your pain-I would clear this world of breast cancer and all it has done
If I could see your pain I would be more aware beyond these 31 days, 744 hours, 44,640 minutes, 2,678,400 seconds and more moments than we can ever count!

Let what you speak, what you hear, what you feel, what you heal, and what you see make a difference in the lives of others….
I pray to God that He sends us a cure for Breast Cancer, until then let’s turn the pain into a reason to praise The Lord Jesus who rules and reigns forever in our lives!

YoTrip Presents: September is Gynecologic Cancers Awareness Month


Get In The Know About Down Below

Do you recognize that your health is your wealth? You can have riches beyond your imagination but all the things (houses, cars, and real estate) cannot keep you alive and well! Your health matters and that means your total health.  September is a month filled with health related awareness. Let me draw your attention one of them.

Gynecologic Cancers Awareness Month highlights the five different types of cancers that plague the reproductive area. Five main types of cancer affect a woman’s reproductive organs: cervical, ovarian, uterine, vaginal, and vulvar. As a group, they are referred to as gynecologic cancer. (A sixth type of gynecologic cancer is the very rare fallopian tube cancer.)

The Inside Knowledge: Get the Facts About Gynecologic Cancer campaign raises awareness of the five main types of gynecologic cancer: cervical, ovarian, uterine, vaginal, and vulvar. It encourages women to pay attention to their bodies and know what is normal for them, so they can recognize the warning signs of gynecologic cancers and seek medical care. When gynecologic cancers are found early, treatment is most effective.   http://www.cdc.gov/cancer/knowledge/  

Be informed and help spread the word about Gynecologic Cancers Awareness Month

Cervical, Ovarian, Uterine, Vaginal, Vulvar. Get the facts about gynecologic cancer.

The Air We Breathe

 

November is National COPD Awareness Month and we should not take the air we breathe for granted.Our lifeline is tied directly to the air we breathe,

 

COPD (chronic obstructive pulmonary disease) is a serious lung disease which makes it hard to breathe. Also known by other names, such as emphysema or chronic bronchitis, COPD is now the 3rd leading cause of death in the United States and also causes long-term disability.

The number of people who have COPD is on the rise — more than 12 million are currently diagnosed with it. And it is estimated that another 12 million may have COPD but not realize it.

If you or someone you know has symptoms such as chronic coughing, shortness of breath or wheezing, see your doctor or health care provider for a simple breathing test. By taking steps now, and talking with your doctor or health care provider about treatment options, you can breathe better and enjoy a more active life.

 

Did You Know?

  • COPD is the 3rd leading cause of death in the United States and causes serious, long-term disability
  • COPD kills more than 120,000 Americans each year. That’s one death every 4 minutes
  • More than 12 million people are diagnosed with COPD
  • An additional 12 million likely have COPD and don’t even know it http://www.nhlbi.nih.gov/health/public/lung/copd/index.htm

 

 

Keep the people impacted by Hurricane Sandy in your thoughts and prayers.

Tuesday Thoughts by YoTrip for 10/2/12-I AM GOING PINK FOR OCTOBER (Vol.10, Iss.1)


I AM GOING PINK FOR OCTOBER

BREAST CANCER AWARENESS during the month of October has taken place for more than 25 years. Even as I write this post someone is feeling the effects of what breast cancer does to try to rob countless women and men of their lives and their living. I do not have the reasons as to why breast cancer has invaded so many people, but I do know that I vow to do my part to help keep it relevant.  

What can we do to keep BREAST CANCER as a focus? We can educate, empower,  and emphasize how important it is to be aware of breast cancer. Education is critically key to everyone’s understanding of BREAST CANCER and its causes, symptoms, treatments and care. Empower the women and men (yes I said men) who face the personal struggles of BREAST CANCER. When a person is dealing with BREAST CANCER they need to know they can go from suffering to surviving via empowerment. Emphasize that BREAST CANCER awareness month is OCTOBER, but this disease is on the job 365 days a year.  

Use the month of awareness of BREAST CANCER to get involved in efforts that you can pursue year around and help with keeping hope alive for the living and honoring those whose life is worth remembering.  Join me by GOING PINK FOR OCTOBER!

Thursday Thinking by YoTrip for December 1, 2011-World AIDS Day (Vol.12, Iss.1)


World AIDS Day 2011

Just the facts…

Some 34 million people are now living with HIV and AIDS;

68 percent of HIV and AIDS-affected persons are in sub-Saharan Africa.

Of those 34 million people, 2.5 million are children. Another 16.6 million children are currently orphaned by AIDS.

Fifty percent of the number of people living with HIV globally are women.

In 2010, 1.8 million people died of AIDS-related causes. That’s 4,931 per day, 205 per hour, 3 every minute. One life is lost to AIDS every 20 seconds.

Since the beginning of the AIDS pandemic, 30 million lives have been lost to the illness.

Every day, 1,068 children are infected with HIV.

*All statistics presented in this post are taken from the 2011 UNAIDS World AIDS Day report (pdf).

AIDS is not a condition it is a movement that has made its way into every segment of the mankind and every place and space on the planet. Do your part to help find a cure to stop the countless deaths. Get tested, know your status and encourage others to be tested. Be informed and then go out and share your  knowledge about AIDS.

Stay in the fight

Today I salute to incredible and courageous women who have been champions for the cause of AIDS and HIV awareness Rae Lewis Thornton (a 27 year thriver) and Hydeia Broadbent (over 20 year survivor).  Both of these ladies speak boldly and apologetically about their struggles and trials with HIV.  To find out more on these ladies story go to http://www.HydeiaBroadbent.com and http://www.raelewisthornton.com/

Tuesday Thoughts by YoTrip- Speak Courageously in the Crisis of Breast cancer


Inspiration Nature pink ribbon

Speak Courageously in the Crisis of Breast cancer

Breast cancer invades the lives of women and men year round. October is the month designated to heighten awareness and educate the masses about this awful disease. The face of Breast cancer is varied, as it has found its way into every segment of society and is does not have personal preferences. Breast cancer screams and is silent in the same breath. Breast cancer cripples and cuts in the same steps.Breast cancer harms and hurts in the same touch.

A dear friend, a coach and a cheerleader of mine, Yvette Register was diagnosed with Breast cancer in February of this year. Yvette was scared, shocked and stunned at the doctor’s words, she thought of her family( her son AJ, Mom and others) and her business (a successful State Farm agency). Yvette found herself at crossroads of decision: fight for her life or let the “c” word win.

Yvette has decided to speak candidly about her journey as she wrote a five-part series in The Orlando Times  (http://www.Orlando-Times.com). the article chronicles Yvette steps as she displays courageous in the crisis of Breast cancer. Reading Yvette’s story offers information and insight as her journey with Breast cancer is unfolding. Yvette’s voice in telling her story is raw, is real, and is remarkable. When Yvette decided to share her story she opened the door of opportunity to help and heal many who are facing the crisis of Breast cancer.

I salute and honor Yvette for deciding to not remain silent in her journey with Breast cancer. A few weeks ago, I along with a room full of others I was blessed to hear Yvette give her personal testimony at the 3rd Annual Pink Ribbon of Hope Tea. The Pink Ribbon of Hope Tea, is sponsored by the Health Ministry at Mount Pleasant Missionary Baptist Church in Orlando, Florida. Each year this gathering  of the Pink Ribbon of Hope Tea, celebrates the life of the survivors, brings attention to education and awareness of breast health and honors those who passed on in their fight against Breast cancer.

The attendees at the tea listened as Yvette used heart and humor to tell her story of courage and crisis with Breast cancer. Yvette let it be known that she is fighting and not folding to Breast cancer, she is her own advocate  and seeks the advice of those who have experienced as a survivor or a healthcare provider. The path that Yvette has taken in her journey with Breast cancer is uniquely her’s but she understands her calling and desire to tell all who will hear how important it is to know your body and do not be afraid to seek help.

Yvette is one of my “sheroes”, I love her spirit, her strength and her sound advice. It is so “awesome” to watch Yvette activate her faith in God as she continues on her journey with Breast cancer. Trusting God  has been a place of comfort and care for Yvette, she looks the Word to keep and carry her when times are rough. Yvette is still smiling with a smile that lights up any space she inhabits and touches all who are in her mist. I am glad that our paths crossed and that Yvette has left a beautiful impression in my life.

I Am Tired

I must admit and I say it loud, I Am Tired. I know my body has caught up with my mind. Here me when I tell you I Am Tired, I Am Tired and I am seeking a place of rest. It is only Tuesday and it feels like I have worked up a week’s work of work, I Am Tired. I push and go and rarely stop, but now my spirit is seeking to slow it down, I Am Tired. Excuse me, forgive me please know I Am Tired and I need to rest!  It is alright to say I Am Tired. I am going to get some rest! How about you? ~~YoTrip

October is National Breast Cancer Awareness, http://ww5.komen.org/AboutUs/AboutUs.html and Domestic Violence Awareness Month, http://dvam.vawnet.org/.  Be open to education on your health.
