by Angela on November 14, 2017

I love reading everyone’s daily status updates on things they are thankful for during the month of November. But I’m going to let you in on a little secret.  The thing I am most thankful for once November comes around is that October is over! I know, I know, it doesn’t make any sense. I […]

Yesterday a friend told me she knew someone about to go through chemotherapy for breast cancer.  She asked me if I had any suggestions on what she could do or give to this friend to make her treatments a little easier.  This isn’t the first time a friend has asked me for suggestions, and boy […]

“How are you doing?”    This is always the question that follows the first one, “How is Owen?”  “I’m fine” is always my reply. Truth is I’m not fine. I haven’t been fine since they diagnosed my son with cancer 2 years ago. Truth is I don’t know what I am any more… To say “I’m […]

Ribbon Run and Earth Day Festival

It’s Exam Time!

by Angela on May 12, 2011

Ladies, this one is for you.  The few guy readers we have (and by few I mean 2….Deena’s husband and my husband, and occasionally my brother) will be uncomfortable with this topic.  After all, my hubby almost passed out at my first pregnancy exam with our first child.  (there’s something so endearing about a daddy […]

Cancer; It happens every day

by Deena on April 5, 2011

So, I’ve been meaning to write this article for awhile now.. but every time I go to start, I feel my chest tightening so I just stop.  Partially I think because I’m afraid if I put it out into the universe I’m going to jinx myself and my family… and partially because I know there are […]
