Two Brave Women…


Carin and Dina

I didn’t want this day to pass without wishing all you moms a glorious day!  This day takes on a cherished status to those of us that live in the cancer world.  No words can adequately express the gratitude I feel about being here today with my precious children.  Making more memories is such a gift and a blessing.

I am so touched by the efforts of my beautiful friends, Dina and Carin pictured above with me.  Dina  and Carin lost their mothers to ovarian cancer.   This Mother’s day Dina and Carin chose to spend it  promoting awareness and research through our local organization (Lydia’s Legacy) created by Carin.  Dina has worked closely with professional photographers in our area and  coordinated photo shoots for mothers and their families.  I had a ball at our photo session (we even included the grand dog) and got to see my survivor friend, Carolyn.  What  brave, giving souls Dina and Carin are to spend their day giving to others at a time so difficult for them.   If I were making a who’s who list for the most caring people in the world, I can tell you for sure Dina and Carin would be at the top!  (Dina and Carin, if you’re reading this…Happy Mother’s Day to you, too!)

I am thinking so much about those I love that have lost their sweet mothers due to this terrible disease.  My heart breaks for them.  I pray that Dina, Carin, Lindsey, James, Alex, Brett, Karen and all the other young sons and daughters that have lost their moms receive some comfort from knowing they are being held tight by me.  However, I realize  that no amount of loving will ever completely heal their broken hearts.  I love you all…
