LIVESTRONG DAY

My beautiful, wonderful, talented blog twin
curious082385 needs us right now. Please visit her blog and offer your support through this difficult time.

In addition, tomorrow, Wednesday, May 17th is LiveStrong day for the Lance Armstrong Foundation. Please help raise awareness about the health policy issues facing cancer survivors. You can do this by wearing yellow, donating or by attending a local event. All the details are listed on the website. Since I cannot list the website here (thanks AdultFriendFinder), just query for LiveSTRONG in google and it will come up.

There are several people on this site that have been touched by this disease, either personally or by relatives and friends. The foundation is asking for blog entries relating to LIVESTRONG Day and what it means to you. You can write about how cancer has affected you or your loved ones and what could have improved the experience or made it less traumatic. You can also add your view about health policy issues facing cancer survivors. Each blog will help put a name and face to the more than 10 million cancer survivors in the United States.

I am asking for as many of us as possible to blog something on this issue, even if it is just in support of one another. For those that don't chose to link to their AdultFriendFinder site, you can do so at another site or simply just write here and share it among us here in Blogland.

Sorry to make this a public service announcement, but cancer has taken someone I loved immensely from me. Please don't let it do the same to your loved ones. Support LiveStrong in hopes of finding a cure!

Thank you for the information.
I certainly will go over and check this out. In addition to the issues now with Mom, we lost my grandpa to cancer and I know several people, here and in the real world, who have been touched by it in some way. Hugs and comforting thoughts for you on your loss. Thank you for your support on this.

I couldn't be a sweet twin without my other half!

We haven't really been able to talk since then but I hope this helped.
