As some of you may know, 3 years ago we lost a teacher at my school to pancreatic cancer. She was only 52 years old and left behind 2 daughters. She had stomach aches constantly, had trouble eating, and after much prodding from us, she went to the doctor. It didn't take them long to diagnose her. By then it was too late. She died weeks after being diagnosed. Since then the staff and I walk for the American Cancer Society's Relay for Life. Our teachers have all experienced cancer with other family and friends as well and it is an extremely touching and personal event for us. To hear the stories at the luminaria ceremony and see how terribly it has affected the lives of people is heart wrenching.
I am so fortunate to work with such an amazing group of people, who truly are my second family. We need to provide to one another exactly these things, Hope, Faith, and Strength. Those that are fighting this disease, as well as their families, need to know they are not alone in their battle.
I hope you take the time this weekend to stop by the other designer's blogs and see their beautiful encouraging cards.......
Have a wonderful weekend! Hug those dear to you!!! ((((HUGS!!!!!))))
