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).
