It's all in!

In November and December of 2006, I had two tattoos done on my inside forearms representing my parents. Both are gorgeous fairies paired with their birth flowers; honeysuckles for mom (June) and snow drops for dad (January). After mom was diagnosed with ovarian cancer, I added a teal ovarian cancer ribbon to her tattoo and a purple general cancer awareness ribbon to my dad tattoo. Dad is a survivor of two cancers.

After finding out I'm BRCA2 positive, I only thought it fitting, to add my own ribbon (any excuse for another bit of ink!), so on Saturday, April 5, 2008, I had the teal and pink ribbon, representing genetic ovarian and breast cancer, added next to my mom's teal ribbon.
