Live Strong Day 2012
Live strong. Think about that for a minute. What does that mean to you?
Not just to those living with the big bad 'c' but to those around them and that love them . I did not capitalize that c because it is evil and does not deserve the extra attention. It causes pain to those who have it and those who suffer with their loved ones. We all have lost someone to this horrible disease or know someone fighting it
I lost an Aunt, father-in-law, my Dad and a nephew (29) and many friends to this. I watched them suffer through knowing there was nothing I could do for them. They taught me to Live Strong. To laugh, smile and sing when I did not want to, but it gave them some comfort.
To Poppy Vic who lost his battle and Ann who is going to Live Strong with out her beloved husband.
To JudiBub who is still fighting and Tracy , the girls and Jidi's Mom who are Living Strong to support her.
This disease affects out beloved pets, too. Most recently Lilly Lu. Her family is learning how to Live Strong while missing her.
THere are many others that I have not nammed, but they and their families are all in out thoughts, prayers and purrs.
LIVE STRONG and lets beat the terrible 'c'
