For Rusty.....

My sister just went thru two surgeries in as many days. She found a lump in her breast only a few days ago and went in immediately to have a biopsy which turned out to be malignant. Its not been a great last few days for her as there is so much more to this story than I can share.

I'm reminded of how short life is and how absolutely awful I am at keeping in touch with those I love. Sending out a hug to you and yours tonight. So many of you have touched my life significantly this past year (or two!). You mean the world to me, all of you.

Now, go check your boobs. Its a sneaky little shit disease that must be ass kicked. Take care of yourself and if you get a minute say a little prayer for my sis.

See ya next week.

Rox, my heart hurts for you. Praying for your sister for healing of her body, and for the rest of you for healing of your hearts.

I've got two shoulders, y'know...

Much love.

Hey Rox, I'm a friend of Kim's over at Handeyecrafts. I read about what you're going through and wanted to send some love and support your way. My family has been kicked around the block several times now by cancer. My mother alone has encountered breast cancer twice so far. Not only did she beat it, but she's stronger today than ever before. Strength of will, tons of support and lots of hugs helped my family though. So, here's some for you and your sister. *hugs*
