A worthy cause

Friends of Heroes and Goodies for mom have teamed up with each other to host a Blogging for blood cancer week.

This is such a wonderful thing to blog about so the knowledge is out there and support and maybe one day we will find a cure.

My stepmom died in Nov. 2006 due to complications from leukemia, which she had battled for over 2 years. She was in remission for a matter of months before being struck so ill again. Her last months were spent in the hospital. My dad and stepmom of course lived in Virginia, so too far away for us to visit.

I was very shocked when my dad called to tell me that she had died. It was hard on him and my step-siblings the most. I was pregnant with Izzie at the time and it makes me so sad to know that she never got to meet my daughter.

So please. Check out these posts. Learn about blood cancers. Perhaps you feel compelled to donate to research.
