Thank you for this, Kim. We've had a stressful month with a close family member bettling cancer and several surgeries.

Kelly said...

So I will give her another big hug today, the cancer is (hopefully) gone after all of this and she's thankfully a survivor!!

Angela: It's wonderful to hear about those who have won the fight!

Kelly: I'll have my fingers X'd for you and your family.

I've lost a few family members to the disease. And my husband's mom battled against breast cancer - she's one of the survivors.

Thanks girls for sharing.
