Your October issue of WTM highlighted one of the most serious issues faced by millions of people globally, the deadly disease — cancer. Instead of just dedicating a page or two to emphasise this disease, I loved the fact that you focused on how to tackle this battle by the different events organised in and around Bahrain.
Just a couple of years ago, when I detected a lump in my left breast, I was petrified. Fortunately for me it was not serious. Awareness is critical as it is not a social stigma, as it was thought to be in the past, to be hidden in the closet.
I know there are many individuals who are afraid to get tested out of fear, but only with early detection can a life be saved. That person could be your father, mother, brother or sister who may not be aware of the repercussions of ignoring such a fatal disease.
Your interview with Julie Sprakel was informative and revealed just how serious this issue has become. For a decade now, she along with the Think Pink team have accomplished a great deal by organising several fundraisers annually to help the community, such as the walkathon, charity rides and fitness events. Only through further research and widespread coverage can people all over the world be motivated to take responsibility and step up to help themselves. I look towards the future with hope that some day a cure will be found to end this deadly killer.
I absolutely love your fashion issue. Autumn and winter outfits are my all-time favourites! As I was going through the trends, I got caught up with ‘Fluffy Business’. I know it’s in this season and I’ve been seeing it on blogs and Instagram accounts of the most stylish people in the world. But that isn’t real most of the time. They are styled for the photo.
How can I wear anything with fur in Bahrain without looking like I just came out of an igloo? I feel like the safest choice would be clutches or shoes with elements of fur.
