My good deed.

I had the good fortune of having the day off today. I thought what better to do than a little retail therapy. On my way out to the mall I heard that a local radio station was doing a fund raiser. It was for breast cancer and since my nana had breast cancer I thought I would toss a couple bucks their way.

Pulling into the parking lot I grabbed my wallet to see what I had. I had only $20 dollar bills no singles. Well now what....... I sat there thinking I don't want to turn around a bail that wouldn't be right. Being that I am a single mom $20 bucks is alot to fork over when you don't have it to spare. But then I thought about everything my nana had gone thru.

I was living with her at the time. I watched her go thru her treatments being a complete trooper about the whole thing. At 63 the woman has the most amazing amount of energy anyone could ask for. She puts on Tuesday night dinners every week for our whole family. Will get out and play football with us. She has an endless supply of love for everyone who show's up at her door.

Sitting there thinking about all of this I knew what I had to do. I walked up to the tent and just handed over a crisp new $20 then walked away. I couldn't imagine my life with out my nana. I wouldn't want someone else to have to go their life without their nana either. I believe whole heartedly that breast cancer research is a very important cause.

So as I walked away thinking that I was going to do some retail therapy today I did something much better with my money. I gave someone else hope,promise,and a chance at life. To many woman die each year from breast cancer. Knowing that I did something to help find a cure did wonders for my soul.

Just reading in the paper that there are some very promising new treatments too, breast cancer is an area where they have been making very real progress.

The paper today said they raised over $20,000 during the Celebrate Courage Campaign here in Maine.

Thanks for being a part of it....
