Omega 3 and Omega 6 fatty acids are fats that are present in the foods we eat, and Omega 3 fats in particular might be beneficial in helping to reduce the fatigue, insomnia, cognitive difficulties, and joint pain commonly experienced by women being treated for breast cancer, particularly women with higher levels of inflammation.

When we launched Pink Ribbon Cooking I asked Bridget to express herself to those that are newly diagnosed. I wanted her to capture her strength and authenticity about her journey with Breast Cancer and to help others see the light at the end of that very dark tunnel. This letter is her welcome to all those in the Cancer Club.
"Cancer ... Do I want it, NO. Did I take from it, Yes! It taught me to see my own strength. It allowed me to see who my true friends are and gave me new ones whom I may never have met. It gave me a new appreciation for love, life, family and friends." Bridget Hemm

The cancer diagnosis came the day before Thanksgiving. I was 42 years old. I had lymphoma. I told my doctor that I had the pies in my car and I was heading to New Hampshire to be with my family. Life has a way of turning us upside down.
I was in the prime of my life, building my own business, working 80 hours a week, raising two teen age children with a husband who traveled for work. Life was grand! I went to the hospital because I had a nose bleed that wouldn’t quit. When they told me they would have to cauterize the inside of my nose I said “no thank you” and left with the promise that I would follow up with my primary care. As many of you know, that is when the ball started rolling. One doctor’s appointment lead to a billion tests and more doctor appointments.
