Pink Sisters, Ink Sisters

Meaningful Ink Sisters We chose to be Ink Sisters after life made us Pink Sisters. Allow me to introduce my Pink Sister, Ink Sister, Robin. We have been friends for 20+ years. Our daughter's grew up together and were good friends. During my breast cancer diagnosis, Robin took my youngest daughter with her family to visit Washington, DC which really helped my daughter get away from the whole cancer environment and have meaningful time with friends. Now, Robin and I are Pink Sisters. She was diagnosed with breast cancer three years after my diagnosis. We chose to become Ink Sisters. Robin volunteered to go on this adventure with me. She got this beautiful tattoo on her calf because her prayer through her treatment was and continues to be: To Walk In Faith. Robin is a five year cancer survivor. My tattoo is special because it represents overcoming breast cancer. I designed this tattoo to include the word ‘Hope’. The most important part of my tattoo is that little word hope. Do you see the cute little legs on each side of the ‘H’ and that special ‘e’ as the last letter? I love that about my tattoo because it is my five year old granddaughter’s handwriting. Therefore, it is so special. Every imperfect line of the ‘e’ is perfect to me. Every time I look down at my wrist, I'm reminded that I am an eight year cancer survivor. I am also reminded that this is a mark I chose to put on my body and that I am a warrior.
