Mia at eight weeks.
My two beautiful and precious children.
I am so very blessed, as I believe we all are, to have people in my life to love and to love me in return. I have been thinking so much about enjoying and accepting what we have; trying every day to be thankful for our blessings. This is because this last week has been a very sad one. One of my best friends' sister has just passed away at the the young age of 34 from breast cancer. She leaves behind her husband, two young children and many family and friends. My prayers go out to all of them.
The injustice of it all has me reeling in frustration and grief. Cancer has claimed too many people that I knew and I wish I could do more to eradicate this plague from our lives. On that note I leave you with this statistic:
On average 429 Canadian women will be diagnosed with breast cancer every week. On average, 102 women will die of it every week. (www.cancer.ca)
Please do a breast self examination today. Prevention is key. If you have never done one, I have posted a link to a pamphlet explaining how.
