Sad news...

...a friend of mine is about to lose a friend. I'm not being sarcastic or nasty, but a friend of hers is fighting her third battle with cancer. She has fought long, she has fought hard, and the doctors have now given her less than 24 hours.

I know that I'm humbled when I hear about people who fight the good fight, they fight and they fight and they are so happy. I am truly blessed to have two of those people in my life right now. Barb is suffering from PV Cancer. A common cancer in older people but very rare in people our age. Audrey in her fight against breast cancer has taught me the true meaning of grace under fire. Both of these incredible ladies always have a smile, a hug and a kind word for anyone and everyone.

I've often felt sorry for myself the past couple of weeks, my weight loss isn't progressing as I would like it to, I have this never ending cold and work is complicated. But compared to these ladies, their husbands, their families. I don't have anything to complain about.

My heart goes out to the family of Karen, her husband George is in my thoughts. I can only pray for them, that they have peace, and that Karen isn't in any pain.

I know on face book it's really stylish and fun to post the color of your bra for breast cancer. But people, we need to realize that there are a lot more types of cancer out there, and we need help to fight all of them!!!

Please, get involved with your local Cancer Society office. If you don't know where to go, go to that will put in you touch with your local cancer office. Let's get out there and show people how much we really and truly do care.

If you don't want to get "Involved" consider donating to a couple of events. I'm personally involved in the Weekend to End Women's cancer for the third year. Visit , I'm also the captain of a relay for life team, you can visit us there at

  1. Big Hugs to you and your friends Katie. The end of January marks the 10th anniversary of my Mom's death to Breast cancer. I know how horrible the disease is, how painful it is for the person going through it and also for the loved ones.

    My thoughts are with the family.
