Pimping other Warriors in Pink

It's almost the end of October and thanks to the help of millions, October is the official month of Breast Cancer Awareness, unfortunately it's not the end of Breast Cancer but with all the donations raised each year it gets us one step closer to a cure. Cure has become a beautiful word to me.

So in honor of my fellow "WARRIORS IN PINK" I would like to pimp a few Women that I have found them or they have found me through J-Land and who are going through their own battles with Breast Cancer at the same time I am. They always say you are as strong as your weakest link and there isn't a weak link amongst us.

So if time permits you today stop by, read up on them and then show em' some love. You have all lifted me during times I needed to be lifted and you all are my "LIFE ANGELS" and my heart is full because of all the love and support you shown for me and my family.

Meet Trish from 
My Breast Cancer Story She is a Wife, A Mother  of two and a Warrior in pink! She has already lost one of her Sisters, Sharon to this disease and is like me fighting hard to survive this disease.....she too like me can only tolerate Peanut Butter and Jelly on toast on her not so good days....She also works part time at a Middle School and adores the kids......please stop by and give her a hug!

Now onto a very new blogger named Barbara....she found my blog after being recently diagnosed and after reading up on me decided to become a new member of the J-Land Blogging community....writing is good for the soul and I know it's has helped me get through whatever I have had to get through all my life. Barbara has also lost her youngest child Evan due to a car accident early last she knows heartache and now she has to deal with Inflammatory Breast Cancer....that's a lot tougher than my diagnosis so please stop by and show her some love and support over at 
Just Another Day In The Life Of Me

Now meet Stephanie.....a stay at home military wife living in Hawaii. Her ordeal started in June with a routine mammogram. She is the Mother of two fraternal twin 7 year old boys. Her life as a military wife (20 years) has taken her a lot of places and has enjoyed it. So not only is she dealing with the diagnosis of Breast Cancer her world was really rocked by the earthquake last week. So please make a trip over to her blog 
in perpetual motion... and let her know she is not alone in this battle.

Lyrics to "You raise Me up" by Josh Groban
Beautiful words...beautiful sentiment

when I am down, and oh my soul's so weary
when troubles come and my heart burdened be.
Then I am still and wait here in the silence
until you come and sit a while with me.
you raise up so I can stand on mountains,
you raise me up to walk on stormy seas,
I am strong when I am on your shoulders,
you raise me up to more than can be.

Thank you all for always raising me up farther than you will ever know!

Oh no!  I've been pimped!  Now I have to be clever and entertaining!  LOL!

It's so good to read that you are feeling good and have an appetite!  I would share my brownies with you, but they are long gone.

I can totally relate to the conversation you had with your mom.  I'd much rather endure this than have either of my two precious ones deal with it.
