Up for more Carbodrip? Must meet Marilyn first, my kitty cat friend
Before I go into anything serious I just have to share a little video I made of Marilyn. Marilyn is my new kitty cat, who was previously at a shelter and then a foster-family. Her foster parents were so nice and took such wonderful care of her. Marilyn is so sweet and a true little lady. She is polite and clean and really amazing. She loves to play with her birdie toy and most of all she loves to be cuddly. Exactly the kind of cat I wanted. Being back in Chemo-ville creates a bit of anxiety and expected fears and loneliness. It’s just part of the overall scope of symptoms of chemo, and cancer. I believe in the healing powers of pets and the perfect little angel fell into my life.
I apologize, I have been trying like crazy to upload several very cute videos of her, but we will have to wait. On my Facebook page there is an adorable play session, and I'd encourage you to check it out.
I hope that you all had a beautiful Easter Holiday.
Monday morning I go to the hospital for my second cup of carbodrip, with cream of course. I have been keeping busy today, reflecting on the message of Easter and feeling warmth knowing that we are in a time of rebirth and renewal. We have new opportunities to clean up our messes and start fresh. Isn’t that just amazing?
I was fortunate to go to Easter Vigil on Saturday night. All I can say is that I really needed to go. It felt so good and I am so grateful to be here.
I wanted to share with you some of the reasons why people support and have joined the cause
“Turn Facebook Teal to Heal in September”. I spent a lot of time on Saturday catching up with the members and sending out a few notes.
WHY PEOPLE ARE SUPPORTING THIS CAUSE:
I am a cancer survivor myself and would like to see something done with this silent disease...it has taken so many lives and caused so much pain. I want to do anything in my power to change this and would like the love and support of family and friends to share in the support
I lost my grandmother to ovarian cancer, and would like to make others aware of this terrible disease.
I lost my Aunt to ovarian cancer & I pray every day for a cure so one day no one will ever have to feel the pain of losing the ones they love in such an awful way!!
I am an Ovarian Cancer Survivor. Stage 1a. I am one of the lucky ones. We need to get the word out. Early Detection is key.ave lost way too many friends from the hideous illness called Cancer !!
I lost my mom to ovarian cancer
I am in my 3rd year of remission, always a fighter, I now fight for me and all those still fighting, and for our angels who got wings we will always love and remember the fight you all fought.
I am facing a terminal illness, it is time to act. Get with a program and support it however, you can.

Ovarian Cancer took my sister 02/02/2010.
I have seen the human body and spirit ravished by this evasive disease. The cure for Ovarian cancer may open the door to the cure for other dream killing disease within the body.
I want to raise awareness to help more victims become
survivors like my sister.
I lost my Mom to Ovarian Cancer and I want to find I way
to stop it from taking any more amazing women
In support of my dear friend Jessica xo
I am an ovarian cancer survivor of 3 yrs. I want to spread the awareness so no other woman has to suffer from this hideous disease! Lets put teal on the map so everyone knows what this color means without having to ask!!
I am a 25 yr survivor and blessed with a Beautiful 21 yr old daughter.Just wanted to let women
know you can beat this disease.
CANCER the most hurtful word ever spoken. It takes our loved ones way to soon and it is evil. Lets fight it together and try to beat it the best we can. I love and miss those whom I have already lost due to cancer and DON'T want to lose anymore.
I shall stand tall!!!!
Because no young girl or woman should go through what I or any other woman has gone through from Ovarian Cancer.
HELP US BREAK THE SILENCE!
My Mother passed away from Ovarian Cancer at the age of 55..that was almost 1 yr ago. I miss her so much.
I hope to help prevent anyone else from suffering.
These are just some of their heartfelt words......
I'll be in hospital til Tuesday, so long as all goes well. It will be the same
de-sensitization treatment as last time. 10 hours of chemo, yay.
For some reason my CA125 is now 33, but I was told that was a reaction to chemo. Oh well, that marker is not too reliable for me anyway.
I love my family, friends and followers. Thank you God for all your gifts and grace.
