Fighting Like Hell on Livestrong Day - Oct 2, 2012


I have lost dear friends, my father and several pets to cancer over the years.  Everyone has been affected by cancer - of a loved one, friend, co-worker, pet.  No one is exempt.  This is why the Livestrong Foundation is so important - they provide support, information and resources to help improve the lives of people everywhere affected by cancer.  

So today, we join in - "Fighting Like Hell on Livestrong Day" to show our support for those with cancer, those who have survived cancer and to remember those who lost their lives to cancer.

For those people who have fought hard and won as well as those who are still fighting, we offer this lovely quote:

"When the Japanese mend broken objects, they aggrandize the damage by filling the cracks with gold.  They believe that when something's suffered damage and has a history it becomes more beautiful." ~Barbara Bloom



And for those who have lost a beloved family member, friend or pet:

"There are stars who's light only reaches the earth long after they have fallen apart. There are people who's remembrance gives light in this world, long after they have passed away. This light shines in our darkest nights on the road we must follow."  ~The Talmud

Great post. Happy Livestrong Day. We are remembering those who have bravely fought the evil "C".

That's beautiful. The only way to encourage finding a cure is to offer a deadline to researchers. As long as they keep getting money, they'll keep stalling. JMHO.
