Crown Princess Victoria and the Pink Ribbon Campaign

Yesterday evening, the Crown Princess attended the ”Breast Gala” benefiting the Pink Ribbon, hosted on live television by the Swedish channel TV3.

Summary of an Expressen article:

To Expressen she said that she shared many women’s anxiety for getting breast cancer, and said that she will get examined more often, and thinks that more women should do that. She also Expressen anxiety for other forms of cancer that comes into our daily lives in our time.

- I think that we all think about it, in the same way that we all think that it can’t happen to me. It is so unreal.

The women affected by breast cancer, who told their stories about their anxiety and treatments in the programme, made a strong impression in Victoria.
- When one is the most hurt, to come out and tell others about it and make it into public support to others, that is so strong and unselfish.

She also drew a parallel to the time when she herself was affected by eating disorders.
- I have felt very bad on my part, not to compare, but what affects one personally when one is feeling the worst, that is very hard to share.

About getting examined more often, she said:
- I must admit that I’m very bad at that, therefore it’s especially important to get an eye opener, that it’s something that everyone should do.

The original & full article (in Swedish) can be found here.

Summary of an Aftonbladet article:

To Aftonbladet, Crown Princess Victoria said:

- It’s incredibly important to support the breast cancer research. Breast cancer is the cancer that affects women the most.

About her admiration for the women who told their stories, she said:
- We should all be moved by these women. It is so incredibly personal to tell about one self, when one is the most vulnerable. I know by my own experience.

The original & full article (in Swedish) can be found here.

Today Aftonbladet has an article of Victoria supporting the "Pink Ribbon Campaign" by pushing a button that turned the Stockholm Globe arena pink, to highlight the fight against breast cancer. According to the article the Crownprincess has also "examined" herself for signs of cancer, "something that all women should do" she says.

It's amazing how much Victoria and Carl Philip resemble one another. She looks great and I must say that I love her shoes.

BTW, Dennism you crack me up.
