Welcome to My Personal Page
May 7th, 2014, just one day after her 50th birthday, my aunt passed away after a long battle with cancer. For me, this was my first experience losing a close family member. It hit me hard too, like it would for everyone else, but for me...I lost some of the sunshine in my life.
As I type this, I can't help but remember her laugh, smile, and overall passion for life. My aunt was one of the happiest people I knew and found a reason to smile regardless of the situation. She loved music and being on the lake and sunsets. Especially sunsets. In fact, right before she passed, she asked to see the sunset and as soon as the sun dipped below the water, she passed.
As time has gone by, I've felt that there is something I can do to help others who are affected by this terrible disease. After thinking long and hard, I've decided to start what I am calling, Books for a Cause. With my love of reading being something my aunt always encouraged, I thought I could use my book blog and passion for reading to help raise money for cancer research.
So please, join me in raising money for cancer research. You can visit the online auction & bid on items donated by various authors here --> http://www.theturningpages.com/booksforacause-auction/ …
For the first time in history, we can imagine stopping cancer in its tracks.
Stand Up To Cancer (SU2C) is a groundbreaking initiative created to accelerate innovative cancer research that will get new therapies to patients quickly and save lives now. SU2C is bringing together the best and the brightest researchers and encouraging collaboration instead of competition among the entire cancer community.
I am asking that you join me in the fight against cancer by making a donation to Stand Up To Cancer. We draw our resolve from those whom cancer has taken, those still in fight, and those who have triumphed over this disease. Thank you for standing up with me.
