October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month

In Memory of Kathy McCabe
Beloved Mother, Daughter, Sister, Friend & Warrior

I just received a box in the mail from Warriors in Pink and I am so glad to be able to take part in this fight against Breast Cancer. It is just a small part but imagine if each one of us does a small get chills just thinking about the difference we can make, that we are making!!! Together we can fight this. I hope you will all take a moment and visit

Breast Cancer effects each and everyone of us in some way. We all need to do our self exams and to get our annual check ups and some of us mammagrams or sonograms.

I will never forget the day my beloved sister Kathy was diagnosed with Inflammatory Breast Cancer, IBC. I kept saying NO this can not be happening, not to my sister no way. Well it did and she suffered so much with it and was so young too. I mean she just had her third child and to think how could this happen she has little ones that need her?! My poor sister always with grace and class fought every day of her life while trying to be the best mother she could be. We all thought she'd make it because she fought so hard but she didn't. We lost Kathy 4 years ago and she was only 38 years old! So I am here to say to you YES it does happen to those we love it can happen to us. None of us are safe from this so it is our duty for every woman who has fought this disease to take a stand and so NO MORE!! Please take a moment to visit and remember you do not have to have a lump to have breast cancer. Please read up on this very aggressive type of Breast Cancer. Knowledge is Power.

I appreciate you sharing your story with us. In the past year I have experienced a similar situation, though I am blessed to still have my sister with me. Hopefully everyone will spread the word and things will be accomplished becasue of people like you who want to make others aware.

God Bless,
