DO you know that more men are being diagnosed with breast cancer than ever before? This week at the college where I teach the nursing department sponsored a bulletin board on breast cancer awareness (and of course I had my Mary Kay cards there to help raise money for Breast Cancer Research for the Mary Kay Ash Foundation. What I learned was shocking! Please forgive me if my pictures alarm you, but they re intended to INFORM you! The silent sleeper kills more than we realize! Here's the scoop!
Many of my followers may have read my own personal story. After more than 20 years of complaining to doctors I finally got one to listen and yes I had a lumpectomy. I consider myself exremely lucky, I know an angel was watching over me! Without a great deal of fight in my to survive I might not be here today! My angel is my mother! She died 22 years ago at the age of 62, to cancer, melanoma that spread internally. I have no digital picture of her to upload but believe me she is an angel!
There are angels among us watching and caring
Ones who are there in the dark of the night,
Giving their love, their guidance, and hugs
Holding us close when the tears overflow...
Whispering softly into our ears, drying our tears
Angels from Heaven and footprints in the sand
Loving and cared for, not by MAN, but God.
Soothing the heartache and heartbreaks of life
Shadows cease that danced through our minds,
No longer muddled, confused, and distressed...
The anger resides and we fight from within,
Sisters united, all for one cause, to be sure -
Answers untold that only God holds, tomorrow
Is a gift that we each want to hold. The days
Do not drift gently by, we laugh and weep some die..
