Live Strong


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.
 The CB is sponsoring a special blog for LiveStrong today and you can visit it here.

We are honoring those survivors. The Woman thinks she is lucky that so many of her patients are alive to walk the walks for cancer today and that there are only a few who are no longer with us.

For some reason Google Reader decided it can't translate your post from English into English. (True, but we're trying to make you smile.)

A very good post on LiveStrong.

LiveStrong, Sweet Praline and Paula!
It was very humbling to take part in LiveStrong, to remember those who didn't make it as well as honouring survivors and those who are currently fighting the terrible disease.
Mummy's grandfather survived colon cancer 15 years ago and we are so grateful.
Many purrrs
