Here we go again! Let's keep the fight alive!
I'm going to be blunt and to the point; ovarian cancer effing sucks! It has affected me too many times, as I know it has affected many others.
I will walk in honor of everyone that is currently dealing with, have dealt with and will deal with this horrible disease. It has stolen many beautiful lives from us all and it needs to stop!
Helen Stewart, the beautiful mother of my best friend Heather, was taken too soon on August 10 2006. I remember Heather and Matt's wedding, the joy in her beautiful face! She loved to dance, smile and laugh! I am so lucky I decided to go to Puzzles on a Sunday night for karaoke and met Heather and had the privilege to meet her beautiful mother. Heather, your mother would be so proud of you and everything you have accomplished and the life you've built with Matt, Hayley, Honor and Helen! I wish she had the opportunity to meet the girls; she would beam with joy at their personalities! xoxoxoxo
Nicole Hill, my beautiful cousin, who passed away on July 20 2011 at the age of 41. Nicky was such a beautiful person. She lit up every room she entered! Being the baby in the family (I was a surprise), I don't have many memories of my older cousins growing up. But I do have some; and most involve large family gatherings involving too much food! Ha ha! Especially at Christmas time! I always remember Nicky being so nice and kind, even though I was an annoying youngin'! Thank you for putting up with me! xoxoxoxoxo
Julie Donnelly, my beautiful co-worker, "Mama", and dear friend, taken too soon on October 30 2017. Julie, I will never forget that day, ever. Me with my hand injury, telling the doctor that I absolutely cannot have surgery on certain days because I needed to celebrate your life! And then celebrating your life with "the claw" on my hand, it's something that will always stick with me. Words cannot express how the loss of your beautiful life is felt. There is a void in our work family that can never be filled. Your presence is often felt. Most times it brings tears of sadness and sometimes it will bring comfort to know that you're still with us. Not a day goes by that I don't think of you. Most mornings on my way to work, "Take It Easy" will come on the radio and I instantly smile and think of you. Then I'll cry. I'm that weird, crying lady in my car, on the bus, where ever I may be at that time! And then I'll laugh because I know you're telling me off for crying and to get over it! I loved your blunt honesty. You never beat around the bush, and was always straight to the point and had no care for what others thought! I loved that about you! I miss you every day Mama and I love you dearly! xoxoxoxox
I'm doing this for you ladies; and every other woman that this disease will affect. I will help fight it any way I can!
