Preaching the Gospel…
First of all, prayers go out to the family of Marti Hughes, who passed away this week, in Ohio. Marti was a wonderful survivor who always had a smile on her face. She could also tell a heck of a story.
This past weekend we held the 2nd Annual Teal Tea Party here in Charlotte. It was sponsored by a remarkable , young organization called Lydia’s Legacy. (www.lydiaslegacy.com). It was quite the gala event and such fun! Each year a doctor and a survivor share their message and this year I was honored to be asked to do the survivor talk. I always take any opportunity I have to spread the message about ovarian cancer, but am never sure I am doing the job justice. I remind myself that I am representing so many survivors, both living and those that have passed on. So, I want to be clear and encourage the audience to take action. At this event, there were some truly awesome survivors in attendance, so it was especially important to me. I was fortunate to have my husband,,daughter, and some friends there, also. (Unfortunately, my son had to work). It was an encouraging group to speak to and the afternoon was wonderful.Thursday I am off to Miraval Spa in Arizona to the Escape Cancer Retreat. I am so looking forward to going and spending 5 glorious days learning how to be a better advocate for others and relaxing at the spa. It doesn’t get any better than this! I hope to have time to report to you some key things I am learning, so stay tuned in.
