It is a dirty, nasty, cruel word. No one wishes it upon anyone even their worst enemy. It amazes me how this horrible disease doesn't have a cure yet. How God can create this thing that causes so much heartbreak to millions of people all across the globe on a daily basis.
This month I want to do something to help because as much as I hate to say it, one day it could be me or my mom, my sister, or my best friend saying those horrible words "I have Cancer".
Before I was even born Breast Cancer claimed the life of my Grandmother. Her name was Laurel. I am named after this beautiful women and I wish I could have had the chance to get to know her.
|Wasn't she stunning?!|
In honor of my Grandma, the other amazing women who are watching us from above, and the women who are still fighting this disease I'm donating to the Edith Sanford Breast Cancer Foundation.
All the proceeds that come from my sponsor spots this month will be donated to the Foundation.
I truly believe in this foundation and their dedication to research in breast cancer. I can't imagine how much money they need just to run their operation and conduct research on a daily basis, but I believe in them and their desire to find a cure.
I wish a cure could be found for every type of cancer so when another person I love tells me those horrible words we can put a stop to it!
The facts are scary because whether we like it or not every 13 minutes a woman dies in this country from breast cancer. Help me raise money for a worthy cause. You never know when someone you love will be impacted by those dreaded words - Breast Cancer.
If you don't want a sponsor spot send me an email to see how you can help. MrsLauraBeth@gmail.com
* I will stop collecting donations for this on November 9th*
