Color of Hope

Loreal has a cosmetics collection specifically for Ovarian Cancer awareness.

September is Ovarian Cancer Awareness Month. Each year, nearly 22,000 women are diagnosed with the disease and during this month, L'Oréal Paris would like to exceed 22,000 visits to the site. When you visit, you're helping to spread awareness. You'll also discover inspiring messages from survivors and L'Oréal Paris spokespeople, along with ways to help support the cause, including the Color of Hope Cosmetics

A lady named Nancy, has miraculously survived Stage 4 Ovarian Cancer, and has been cancer free for 2 years. She started an online community, like a craigslist, to help people with all kinds of cancer. Check out her website:

Nancy’s List is a grassroots movement committed to significantly improving the lives of the many people in our community who are living with cancer and those who love and care for them. The epidemic of cancer demands an innovative response. We cannot rely on the healthcare system to focus on the many challenges that come with a cancer diagnosis but we can rely on ourselves and our desire to serve and our generosity of spirit and reach out and support the courage and bravery and resilience of our neighbors. We invite you to open your heart and join us.

Teal Toes

There is a new way to bring Ovarian Cancer awareness. Many people are painting their toe nails in a shade of teal for the month of September. Three nail polish companies are donating proceeds from their teal color. Check out the website for lots more info:

Welcome to Teal Toes!

Our mission is to raise awareness of ovarian cancer.

How? By painting your toenails teal, the ovarian cancer color. By getting your friends to paint their toenails teal too, and then by talking with people when they ask about it, to make sure that they know the signs of this whispering killer.

Any time of year is good for teal toes, but we especially recommend September, the ovarian cancer awareness month!

Four Month Anniversary

Today marks the fourth month of my sister's passing. I know she is resting in God's perfect peace. In her honour, I am showing the gift and card she gave my son for his first Easter. This is significant because she died on the morning of Easter Sunday. I am so glad that in my sentimental saving, I have all these treasures to share. The outer envelope is funny.

From Griefshare

Life is marked by losses. Some are life changing, such as leaving home, the effects of natural disasters or war, the death of a loved one, or divorce. Others are subtle, like changing jobs, moving, or a broken friendship. But whether you encounter family, personal, or community disaster, there is always potential for change, growth, and new insight.
