Today is The Relay for Life walk here in my town. I don't know anyone who hasn't been impacted by cancer in some way. Personally, I have a Grandfather and an Uncle who are currently battling cancer, and multiple family members who have had cancer removed from their bodies.
Nearly 1,600 people die each day from some form of cancer in the US. Anyone can get cancer; young and old; smokers and non-smokers; single people and married; even mothers.
In support of my sweet friend, Lucy, who fought and survived in her battle against Lymphoma last year, today's blog post is dedicated to Team I Love Lucy!
My friend Lucy is a loving mother of four kiddos, all under the age of 13, she is fun and full of life and a fighter. When I discovered that she had received such a terrifying diagnosis, I did the only things I knew to do; I prayed, I brought chocolate, a funny card and I cried with her.
Interested in supporting her team for the Relay for Life? Go visit their page here: Team I Love Lucy.
This is for YOU Lucy, you are a survivor and an inspiration to those around you:
I also found this beautiful video of another mommy who survived cancer:
