During the Season of Goodwill...


Some of you are already aware of our own Zoe's (Garden Hopping) story about her battle with breast cancer. If not, I urge you to catch up with her moving Journey here. And there's more - she's already giving back something to the people who are helping her by preparing a beautiful advent miscellany for you to enjoy over at her Christmas Greetings blog . Why not visit now, settle down for a good read and then make a donation? If you do so, you could win a super prize!

There's even more - a couple of friends from where I used to work sent me this the other day:

A favour to ask, it only takes a minute.... Please tell ten friends to tell ten today! The Breast Cancer site is having trouble getting enough people to click on their site daily to meet their quota of donating at least one free mammogram a day to an underprivileged woman. It takes less than a minute to go to their site and click on 'donating a mammogram' for free (pink window in the middle). This doesn't cost you a thing. Their corporate sponsors/advertisers use the number of daily visits to donate mammogram in exchange for advertising.

Simply using our click buttons to prevent others from undergoing the same ordeal just has to make sense:


I thought posting this was better than just telling 10 of my friends, but do pass it on to yours too...

Update: Frankie from Veg Plot added this most important information in my Comments, which deserves to be more prominent. Thanks Frankie.
... and please do contact www.breastcancerhaven.org.uk (where I work) - we offer support, info & complementary therapies to anyone affected by breast cancer. I've been there for 5 years and it really does makes a huge difference. There are Havens in London, Hereford & Leeds plus a support DVD due for release next month. The Breast Care Nurses at each Haven are great and you can book phone appointments and ask them about anything that might be concerning you. This also applies to family and friends who might be worried.

  3. Thanks for both links VP. I will certainly donate and click. This illness is very close to my heart as my younger sister was diagnosed with breast cancer in March this year. She too has been very strong and determined during her treatment and I am so proud of her.

  5. Zoe - it was the least I could do! Fingers crossed it puts more people and donations your way.

    PG - I have an ex-work colleague going through it too and I'm sure Zoe appreciates what you've done.

    Anna - sorry to hear about your sister, but so glad she's a fighter.

    Frankie - thanks for adding that most important link. I'll update the piece too.
