EDITORIAL

Catch Me If You Can

W

hile October often brings to mind Halloween
and pumpkin-flavored, well, everything, it's
also Breast Cancer Awareness Month. And after
reading the statistics about cancer in our Nail Clinic column
this issue ("When Your Client Has Cancer" on page 102), my
heart sank: "Cancer is responsible for one in four deaths in
the United States." That's too many. And then you think
of our little nail community, the number of friends we've
lost, and you realize that the data is frighteningly real.
I've had my own little scares over the years.
When I was in my early 20s, my doctor found a
small lump during a routine breast exam. I had
to have an ultrasound-guided biopsy, which
fortunately determined that it was a benign
fibrous lump. But the weeks between the
initial find and the test results were a
blur of anxiety and fear. A few years
later, abnormal cells appeared during
a regular Pap smear. After some more
invasive tests, it was determined that it
was not a fluke and there were precancerous cells present that were not going away.
As a result, I had to have a LEEP procedure, which
involved a trip to the hospital, going under anesthesia and
removing abnormal tissue from the cervix. Yet another
experience fraught with worry and tears.

Saying Goodbye
With heavy hearts, we bid
farewell to Amanda Lenher,
who lost her battle with
cancer in August. She was
a shining light in the nail
industry and on the competition
circuit. Her fearless attitude,
great talent and warm hugs
will be sorely missed. Please
turn to page 69 of this issue
to see her in memoriam.

OCTOBER

2017

While frightening at the time, these were actually happy
occasions, as I turned out to be OK. Unfortunately, that is
not always the case. Recently, the nail community and I
mourned the loss of a young and talented nail artist, Amanda
Lenher. This hit close to home and makes you realize that
we, as women in particular, must be vigilant in the care of
our bodies. Regular gynecological checkups are essential to
the prevention of disease. I know that because of the nature
of the nail industry, many are without health insurance, but
that is not an excuse. There are more than 13,000 Federally
Qualified Health Centers (findahealthcenter.hrsa.gov) that
provide health care to women (and their families) across the
country. If you've been dragging your feet, stop. Find a doctor
and get a checkup. It's so incredibly important.
While technically Breast Cancer Awareness Month, there
is no time like the present to take care of ourselves-and
your clients-for whatever may be ailing you. After all, as my
mother-in-law says, "If you don't have your health, you don't
have anything."
