The Reason I Show My Support

I’m so stoked to be part of this hop giveaway.  Every year, I look for something to do to help bring awareness to this month.  I’m all about multitasking.  I decided that I’d combine my giveaway with promotion for an upcoming anthology that I am privileged to be affiliated with as well as awareness for October being Breast Cancer Awareness month.

A woman that will forever be embedded in my memory, not because she is gone from this world, but because of the life that she’s lived.  She was diagnosed with cancer during a time when she was supposed to be celebrating one of the greatest gifts a woman can have.  After years of trying to get pregnant, she was able to finally able to have a baby.  Concerned about the issues she was having with breast feeding, she went to the doctor.  The outcome was learning that she had cancer.  The first year of her newborn son’s life was spent being too weak to hold him.  She couldn’t breastfeed as she wanted to.  Imagine the pain she felt.  It’s not something that I would wish on anyone.  The family rallied around her, going as far as shaving their heads, wearing the wigs or scarves when she did and keeping her encouraged.  I continue to share and support causes because of Jen.  She reminds me to keep going in the face of adversity.  I will continue to share her story as I watch her family from afar via Facebook.

You’ll find a giveaway, the information for another cause that I am associated with and helpful information about the true reason for this month.  Thanks for stopping by the blog.  I hope it is helpful and inspiring.
