You get it

I get it

We all need a little sunshine

What we need

And what we get can be different

Go outside and get some sunshine

And some free vitamin D

We all need vitamin D

I’m happy to wake up

Sit up and put my feet on the ground

I tell myself I’m going to tackle today

Today, as in the present

We all like presents

Worry about today

Not tomorrow

Not yesterday

But today

Enjoy the present

Open it and keep it

Go outside for 10 minutes

What more can you ask for

Today is the day

Worry about today only

Get your sunshine on

Embrace the sun

Let it hit your face

Breathe the air

Enjoy that sunshine

Enjoy the air

We don’t know what tomorrow brings

So breathe

Take some deep breaths

Look around

Soak it all in

That vitamin D

Have a sunny D

Don’t stay too long

You don’t want to get burnt

Just 10 minutes

We all like free

My daughter told me I was her sunshine

You can be someone’s sunshine too

Shine on

Surviving Breast Cancer provides breast cancer support, events, and webinars at no cost to you! Whether you are looking to gain more knowledge on a particular topic or meet up with other breast cancer survivors, we have something for everyone. 


Our standing appointment on Thursdays is for all stages. We also host specific breakout groups once a month for specific stages and subtypes such as Metastatic breast cancer, and Inflammatory Breast Cancer, etc. 


The Book Club meets the first Sunday of every month at 11 am ET. You are welcome to join each month or pick and choose your month based on your availability and the book we are reading. 


Through art, writing, and other creative modalities, we hold the power to manage our stress, make sense of our now, and relax into moments of stillness. 


Free, monthly, online classes in restorative yoga, yoga for breast cancer, and Zumba.
