Breast Cancer Awareness Month

My Mom, Lauri Vincer-Ebens 1957-2007

Hello my friends! Thank you all for your condolences, for lighting candles in memory of my Mom, your prayers, your good thoughts and your emails checking on me. I am okay as an only child can be after losing her Mother I suppose. I am trying to get back into my real life. We are back on our island, we got in on Saturday morning.

As many of you are aware, October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month...a month that is very special to me. My Mom used to have a team that participated in the Making Strides Walk. The team is carrying on without their fearless leader in memory of my Mom. Because we must never forget. And we must find a cure. Watching someone you love die from Metastatic Breast Cancer is something that I hope nobody has to endure in the future.

I have signed up to raise money for Mom's team, The Pink Ribbon Girls. Please make a donation is too small. Every single dollar helps.

My personal page is here: Missy's Pink Ribbon Girls Page

I am sending a check today (it is Monday here) to the American Cancer Society for $1500 to go towards the walk, it is money given by Mom's friends at her Memorial. I am also sending a check to Hospice from the Memorial.

Please make a donation, and while you are at it, check out the awesome site that Kim has put together Stitch Pink!

Hi Missy, I donated but I think I clicked on the wrong link. I clicked on the blue writing below instead of the big pink Donate button so it's not going to show in your total.

I am so sorry for your loss. Words can not express how my heart is aching. I changed the look of my blog and I hope you don't mind I put a link to your blog for all to see. Please check out my blog. I plan on donating this week for such an important cause. (((HUGS))).

Hi Missy,
So happy to hear from you I've been thinking about you. I want you to know that I would donate to your cause but I support my Aunt's team. She passed away from metastatic breast cancer December 12, 2003. She left two boys that my Mom is raising now. Stay strong, and keep fighting the fight.
Thinking of you.

I hadn't visited your blog until recently and was saddened to hear about your poor Mom. Please accept my heartfelt condolences.

My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family.
