First of all, thank you so much for your kind words. Each comment I receive means so much to me, and I find myself getting a bit teary each time I read them.

Now that I've shared a bit about my story, I want to spend more time looking for others who are sacrificing their time, money, talents, and whatever else they can, to help those who are suffering.

While perusing some of my favorite blogs, I came across Running for My Life. Ronnie was diagnosed with leukemia after "feeling winded while running a 10-K road race", her blog is, as she describes, about "falling down and getting up".

Take a moment if you can and read some of her posts, she is so motivational and inspiring.

Which organizations, blogs, people, or places inspire you to get back up when you're down?


  1. Great posts! My family and friends are always there to bring me back up. Also, working at a cancer hospital is inspirational because there are so many good things happening every day!

  2. Great post! I am going to read her posts! Thanks so much for sharing!
    Thank you so much for your lovely comment!
    Kisses and have a nice day!

  3. First of all, you are absolutely amazing. You are going to be the most beautiful bald woman ever. Guaranteed. Secondly, I would like to help your mom in a way that doesn't involve me chopping off my hair (I'm nowhere near as confident as you are!). Can I send you a donation?? And lastly, a friend of mine from back home in California has a wonderful blog about his continued struggle with cancer. His words always make me want to be better:

  4. you are so inspiring! :)

  5. I have just been reading your inspiring story! Good Luck - I am sure your Mum will be so proud of you - how wonderful that you are trying to make her journey a little easier. Best wishes to both you and your Mum.
