i almost forgot that i said i would do all the astrological signs..luckily i remembered to make this happen before the sign changed..
the astrological sign of cancer is a water sign..emotional, loving, imaginative, intuitive, cautious, protective and sympathetic..
on the dark side they can be moody.. over-emotional, and clingy
for my friend jaycaps who recently celebrated a birthday..and to any other flickr friend who i may not know was born under this sign... let me know! & happy birthday!!!

Suddenly the things I had been obsessing about daily meant nothing. Things like losing my hair, the medical bills, the surgical scars, the muscle loss, getting back to work asap.... instantly none of it mattered. I'm breathing. I'll be alive to watch my girls grow up. I get to grow old. I get to keep living and loving life. It wasn't until my doctor spoke the words CANCER FREE that I realized how strong I had been because within seconds I couldn't stop crying. I realized that I had been putting so much into the little things because I wasn't ready to face the big things. The what if's......
That's no longer the case. I'm cancer free and I don't give a shit about the little things. After all, I've already kicked cancers arse. That makes me a total badass right? :)
I'm so happy.
Just going over my pics from last years Manitoba Metalfest 2018. I like this one. Cancer Bats.
I donated this tree to an auction in honor of my Mother's survival 25 years ago. She is such a brave woman.
This painting was auctioned for The American Cancer Assoc. I guess there was a bidding war between 2 woman!!!!! Makes me so happy SOLD
It is also featured in the AUGUSTA MAGAZINE in an article on the BRAC gene in the Nov 2013 issue.
Cancer is cancer, whether its breast or childhood cancers.......all cancers break hearts.
Each year in the U.S. there are approximately 13,400 children between the ages of birth and 19 years of age who are diagnosed with cancer. About one in 300 boys and one in 333 girls will develop cancer before their 20th birthday. In 1998, cancer became the #1 cause of disease related death in children. 250,000 children in the world get cancer every year. Each year, more than 160,000 children die of cancer, worldwide!
While the incidence of childhood cancer has changed only slightly since 1970 (an increase from 11.4 per 100,000 population in 1974 to 14.8 per 100,000 in 2004), the overall survival rate for childhood cancer has increased drastically during that time period. Today, the overall 5 year survival rate for childhood cancer is close to 80%.
In underdeveloped countries, the survival rate is 20%.
Because treatment cure rates have increased, the population of childhood cancer survivors has also increased. Currently there are estimated to be 270,000 survivors of childhood cancer in the U.S. This equates to one in 640 young adults between the ages of 20 to 39 being a survivor of a childhood malignancy.
Survival however is with a "cost." Two-thirds of those who do survive face at least one chronic health condition. One quarter of survivors face a late-effect from treatment that is classified as severe or life-threatening. Late-effects of treatment can include heart damage, second cancers, lung damage, infertility, cognitive impairment, growth deficits, hearing loss, and more. It is becoming increasingly apparent that childhood cancer "is for life." Late effects from either the disease process or aggressive treatment regimens are given at a time of life when children have growing bodies and developing brains. As such, patterns of late-effects include disabilities, chronic health conditions, and even subsequent battles with additional cancer. It is imperative that all survivors of childhood cancer receive on-going monitoring and continued physical and psychosocial care throughout their adult lives.
International Childhood Cancer Awareness Day (ICCD) has been observed each February 15th since 2002. Over 65 countries worldwide now participate in the event.

The peach is for Uterine Cancer and the Aqua is for Ovarian Cancer.
One of the ladies in my guild is very involved in a cancer group. They raffle and sell quilts.
Last year the guild made a Breast Cancer Quilt that was raffled and it made $1,900. (I didn't work on that one - it was beautiful)
The next one will be cross stitched ribbons representing all cancers that will be made into a quilt..
I cross stitched these two.
Cancer isn't changing who I am. God is using my cancer to help show me who I am meant to be. x
