No, I Haven't Been Ignoring Breast Cancer Awareness Month

I haven't, really. In fact, I have been busy. My daughter and I walked the 5km CIBC Run For The Cure a couple of weeks ago. Between the two of us, we raised nearly $2,000 for the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation, thanks to the generosity of our family, friends, neighbours and teachers. Much of that money will go to research. In fact, have a look at this video about how the Foundation uses the fund that are raised.

I have also been reading posts by my favourite bloggers. I have even written a guest post for "Telling Knots" which was published today. The timing is apt, as yesterday was the two year anniversary of getting my biopsy results, the day we told our daughter I had in curable breast cancer. Please stop over at "Telling Knots" to read my post and the other guest posts she is publishing this month. Like many bloggers this month she is putting the focus on those of us living with mets (that is, advanced breast cancer).

  4. I was fighting against a stage IV cancer and i won, lucky my husband who helped me all the time.I think it is very important that family support to win, because i was very weak;really helped me participate in one group of victims of cancer, so my mood improved, also helped me a adviser of advisercancer-diseases.com.I recomended not surrender, because sometimes the first treatment does not work as me, and change doctors if it is necessary.Read positive thinking books gave me more energy.During my cancer,i changed my diet,now i eat vegetarian organic food(now i not eat meat).I think is a set of things that help me.

    my study at this moment, and I am really happy I discovered your website. However, I
