TEAL .... 1st auction ~ done!!

Tell Every Amazing Lady About Ovarian Cancer!!

On April 22, 2011 we found out that I had Ovarian Cancer (just a couple months from bringing home our sweet Samson Jude from Ethiopia)... this day has changed our lives... we believe our Father God holds each of us in His hands and we will be held through this difficult journey. As of right now, I am waiting for my 5th chemo treament.

September is National Ovarian Cancer awarness month. The Ovarian Cancer Awareness Alliance and me are encouraging you to wear teal this month, but especially this first Friday in September which has been declared National Teal Day.

Teal has become the ovarian cancer community's color as pink is for breast cancer. The community wants to use the color to serve as a reminder that ovarian cancer is the 5th leading cause of cancer death among women.

A simple way to wear teal is to join in the campaign "Teal Toes." Simply paint your toe nails using a teal colored nail polish. Wear sandals or flip flops to show off your 'teal toes'. When someone comments on your bright toes, use the opportunity to teach them about ovarian cancer. You may learn more by visiting OCNA

AND with that said...

    Still praying for you in this difficult season. Know you are such an inspiration to so many... even if you never intended for it to be in this way. You are loved more than you know, friend!
