Live Strong Day

Please scroll down for today's post!

Today we are joining many of our friends in Live Strong, imagine a world without cancer.

We are dedicating this day to Mom's Dad who lost his battle 10 years ago, Mom's nephew who lost his battle at the age of 29, five years ago. One of Mom's friends lost her husband last month. We have all been touched by cancer and many will be touched in the future. We are hoping for a cure!

We also want to remember all our Internet friends that have survived , who have lost the battle and all who are fighting now!

A Lovely Texas neighbor created a slide show of many of the cat and dog blog's that are celebrating Live Strong. Thank you Chandra!

Mom here: We are coming to grips with Mac's illness! We joined a Facebook group and a Yahoo group for support and information. We have kept him separate for three weeks only so we could get him to eat with out Kirby taking his food. We are still feeding him separate, but he has been given the run of the house. We may be overly hopeful, but we cannot feel his ribs as much as we could! We think he has gained weight. We have not set up appointments for second opinions, yet. We are still planning on doing that soon.

So sorry for the loss of your loved ones to this terrible disease. The cancer seems to affect most families or friends. Purring hard that some day this will be a thing of the past and there will be no more cancer. What a wonderful world that would be.

I lost my sweet mother-in-law to cancer about 25 years ago, and my maternal grandparents, my sister's mother-in-law... so many. Too many. My Dad is currently undergoing chemo and radiation. We need to kick this dreadful disease to the cure.

I will remain hopeful with you for Mac. Grayson has been barfy lately, as he was 6 months ago. My Vet is baffled. He's OK at the moment. *fingers crossed*

You should see how well-worn and loved Aria's Peter and Peter's brother are! Lovey's ROCK! Ian is almost old enough for his blue puppy... he's been named Snoop!
