Cancer Never Stops. We Can't Either.

Once October and the great breast cancer awareness promotions end, cancer continues. Women who were diagnosed this year will still be in treatment, whether they are finishing up chemo, healing from surgery, or about to begin a five or six week course of radiation therapy.

So please put an asterick on your calendar for a month from now. Given how busy all of our lives are you will probably won't remember what the asterisk is for. If you think that's the case go ahead and color the asterick in pink ink, or purple, which is the color for universal cancer awareness.

When you see the asterisk then, say a little prayer. Meditate on all those affected by cancer. We'll still be out here working, because cancer does not stop.

Neither do I.

Thank you all for your support. It means more than you know.

That is a marvelous idea, Jody. Hopefully I won't be needing that reminder, though, for I don't intend to quit this fight any time soon.
Love you and the work you do

Dear Jody,

Never seen a more fierce cancer fighter. Just know I will try to keep up with you every step of the way! That's why we don't need to mark our calender, we're in it for the long haul. But if I mark it anyways, would you mind terribly if I use yellow (for me the color of the fight to cancer). Thanks for you have already done and will do in the future. Love and big hug, Annemieke
