I am not really a girly girl – I don’t paint my nails or accessorize my outfits or style my hair or wear makeup. Usually, that is. But recently I saw a campaign to show support for lung cancer patients that involves painting ones toenails purple. So I borrowed some nail polish from a friend, and did this to my toes: It’s a message for anyone dealing with a serious illness – I support you.
I know this is a small gesture, and it’s purely symbolic. But small things can matter, and if this matters to someone, then I’m glad to do it.
How do you support those you love with cancer?
