"can't wait to get a discount for just being alive."
wow, THAT slapped me back to reality.
A few years ago the giant department store Macy's ran an ad campaign that featured the latest and greatest (read expensive) fashions. The lead copy was:
What Matters Most.wait, what matters most?.. and they think it is expensive clothes and watches and jewelry?
A subject that is hard to discuss.
In 1997, my sister found out she had breast cancer. She had three little kids. It was a pretty grueling year for her, mastectomy, chemo and radiation.
In 1998, exactly one year later, I was diagnosed with stage III ovarian cancer. Three months later my sister's cancer had metastasised to her brain, lungs etc. She died later that year at the age of 34.
October is Breast Cancer awareness month. I don't think that anyone can NOT be aware of breast cancer. I believe it has touched so many people that most everyone has known someone that has been afflicted with this disease.
I only hope that each of us can support any family and/or friend that has to race to survive the beast.
and I hope that no matter what...
really folks, NO MATTER WHAT, we all remember
What Matters Most
...and Momza, I am happy to get a discount for being alive!
