We’re blown away by the support for Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Not only were 2,000 amazing and brave women gifted a pink pair of Rothy’s, but we were also lucky enough to read thousands of inspiring stories. We are truly humbled by the support and compassion we have seen amongst our Rothy’s community. Thank you for sharing your stories with us, and thank you for making women affected by breast cancer feel comfortable, beautiful and strong.

Michelle found a lump while breastfeeding her one-year-old baby and thought nothing of it. After seeing several doctors, she was diagnosed with breast cancer. She had a double mastectomy and 26 lymph nodes removed. She is in her fifth round of chemo all while trying to take care of three children and maintain her career. Cancer becomes such a financial struggle, so a new pair of comfy shoes will brighten her day. Thank you for doing this.

My mother, Crystal, had breast cancer in her 50s. Since then, she has done so much volunteer work for the American Cancer Society. She also suffered from colon cancer and skin cancer in her 80s. Despite this, she has continued to live alone in the house my father built in 1951. She has 5 children, 11 grandchildren, and almost 20 great grandchildren. She is the most positive person I know. She is now 90 years old.

Amanda is my beautiful niece who has been diagnosed with BRCA 1. She is under 30 and facing a double mastectomy this December. Amanda is a warrior and a picture in courage. She actively blogs about her diagnosis and works hard to be a mentor for other women who are in similar situations. I could not be more proud of her strength.

My mom developed bilateral breast cancer in early 2013. It was discovered on a routine mammogram and fortunately both tumors were caught early. She underwent a bilateral mastectomy and chemotherapy. Even when feeling sick, she was always positive and supportive of everyone else. We do not have breast cancer in our family, so we had no reason to expect her to get breast cancer other than that it happens to 1 in 8 women. Now she advocates for other women to get routine mammograms! Additionally, she completed the 60 mile Komen walk in 2016. She’s my idol and I love her so much!

My beautiful courageous mom just passed her LUCKY SEVEN year anniversary of kicking breast cancer’s butt. She is the toughest woman I know, and I hope to face my life with the same level of strength and stubbornness in the face of adversity. She has taught me more than she’ll ever know, and I feel so so blessed that God pulled her through everything.
