This image is a white woman with dark brown long hair wearing a face mask. The mask is made of denim and painted with a design stating Power not Pity. The last line of the letter W in Power has the woman symbol wit the fist coming up from the last line of the W and the inverted t or plus sign + coming down from the last line of the W.

Personal Story on Empowerment

When I was diagnosed with cancer, I was, in a word, shocked. I considered myself healthy in all ways. I ran five days a week, ate fresh, homemade foods, and even cleaned my home with all natural, homemade products.

Women need to be bolstered not babied. We need to be reminded of our strength and courage. So, the next time someone in your life is going through something tough–it’s okay to say “this sucks!” and commiserate with them, but never pity them. Be compassionate to their situation and remind them of their power. I’m so thankful to Vicki for creating art that has such a powerful message. Thank you, Vicki!

I knew I would face my cancer the same way I faced many hardships–head on. What I wasn’t prepared for was the reaction to my diagnosis from many well-meaning folks. Some looked at me with pity, which was not what I needed–I needed empowerment and encouragement. That’s why when Vicki designed this incredible mask, the words “Power not Pity” mean so much.
