~ HOPE ~

 I donate often to help find a CURE....for ALL types of cancer
because it is a cause that is near and dear to my heart.

My mother had was removed by surgery and she
didn't have to have any other treatments...
it never returned.

Two of my very best friends have fought and WON breast cancer.
Mr. Sweet has had numerous cancers

This is why it is SO IMPORTANT to be checked OFTEN.
Early diagnosis  is the key to Mr. Sweet's recovery each time.

Testicle cancer
Kidney cancer
other Kidney (removed one whole one and 1/2 of the other)
 Prostate cancer
Skin cancers
All very serious ...
Having this many, he goes to the doctor every 6 months for checkups.
Thankfully, none of the bullet-dodging cancers have returned.

  He's  a very healthy 81 year old now and we all are very thankful.

He goes to work out 3 days a week...
he plays golf...
he swims...
and he loves going to watch his grands in anything they are doing at the time.
and did I mention he LOVES playing poker with our son and friends....even tho he seldom wins. 

 Heather Von St. James was diagnosed with mesothelioma, a rare cancer caused by asbestos exposure , almost 10 years ago. She was given a death sentence of only 15 months to live shortly after giving birth to her baby girl Lily. After surviving such a bleak diagnosis, Heather's life mission is to bring a voice to those who were silenced by this disease.

 She wants to bring HOPE and AWARENESS to all others facing this disease.What a beautiful family. 

Please take a few minutes and go over and read her story. 
She has provided links to read more about the type of cancer she had.

If you feel so inspired, 
please tell others of her sharing of
HOPE and AWARENESS for all cancer victims.
I would so love for you to leave her words of encouragement and thankfulness. 
Many thanks.

We all need our spirits lifted from time to time and I would like to leave you a link to a wonderful, inspiring and uplifting blog..
He has listed tips to help LIFT OUR SPIRIT.
