I am joining in with many other bloggers today for Livestrong Day sponsored by the Lance Armstrong Foundation to bring awareness of cancer and support to cancer patients and survivors across the globe. Thanks to Ann of Zoolatry, Jan of A Cat's Meow, Chandra of Life from a Cat's Perspective, Linda from Ozark Mountain Cats and so many others who helped pull this together.
I recently lost one of my best furriends, Sniffie (from the Florida Furkids) to cancer and I especially wanted to remember her today.
My mom has two best girlfriends who are breast cancer survivors (Janet and Kathryn) and her dad is a bladder cancer survivor. I also want to honor Vic of Zoolatry today as he fights cancer.
My mom and I have been very lucky in that we haven't had any evidence of cancer ourselves. I recently had a mast cell tumor removed and thankfully, it was benign. My mom has had several biopsies that were pre-cancerous, but luckily the spots were removed and she is okay. Please take a moment to visit LiveStrong and remember those who didn't make it with the cancer battle and honor those who are survivors.
