Welcome everyone, please come on in and help yourself to some of the goodies on offer. I would give you all real cake if I could but this way at least you can try everything and not put on an ounce!
As I said earlier in the week there can be few who have not at some point been affected by cancer. A family member, friend, work colleague or even yourself. Thankfully there are more and more forms of cancer that can be successfully treated but so much of the support and research could not continue without donations. If you would like to make a donation go HERE for details.

My mother was diagnosed with breast cancer about ten years ago. She underwent chemotherapy, radiotherapy and a mastectomy. The treatment took it's toll on her, she lost her hair and wore a wig. Not for herself so much as for her grandchildren who were all quite young at the time. I can remember the day wearing it became too much for her. It made her head hot and itchy. She throw the wig across the room. The children didn't bat an eyelid and she rarely wore it after that!
About a year later we were given the news that she appeared to have beaten the illness. Naturally this was wonderful . Sadly within a few months she suffered a massive stroke that has left her entirely dependent on others now. But that is another story.
I don't want today to be about sadness I want it to be about positivity. I strongly believe that a positive attitude helps. Lets celebrate the survivors and remember friends and loved ones we have lost with love.
Thank you for taking the time to visit and spend a few moments of contemplation. Please feel free to leave a comment, or dedication to a loved one or maybe you would like to post on your own blog and add a link in the comments below.
Hope you all have a weekend filled with love and happiness.
