Live Strong Day

October 2 /10
.
Today is Live Strong Day and like many of you, I'm yellowing up my post in dedication of every person and animal who is waging a brave battle against cancer.
.
This is also in memory of those who fought the battle and lost, and to honour the survivors who are blessed and won.
.
.
I hope that those who are in the fight find strength in their loved ones and in the simple pleasures of life. I hope they find comfort in the prayers and good wishes that come their way.
.
This post is also in appreciation of devoted Oncology caregivers who see to the needs of their patients, and of all the researchers who work tirelessly to find a cure for cancer. And special thanks to those who raise and donate money to fund this research.

Papa, this post is especially for you.

Please, friends, visit the official Live Strong site and support the fight against cancer.

Thanks for your fantastic recognition of both humans and puppies who have waged the battle. I recently lost my boxer of 10 years to cancer/heart disease and the loss was devastating. Thanks for giving me a place to reminisce!

Following up on Thomas's request: Looks like Livestrong is back up -- they may have just been server-bombed with traffic on the big day. Which is a bummer in one way, but on the other hand it's a measure of how much support and traffic they receive. And thanks, Chef, for helping to spread the word and raise awareness of the cause.
