We Can Rebuild Her
Better than she was before… Better, Stronger, Happier. A Breast Cancer Journal

Soul Supplements

Last month, I invited you to join me in my effort to raise money for the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation by sponsoring me here.

In the few weeks since, your generous gifts of financial support for cancer research and moral support for our little family have infused all four of us with gratitude and with joy.

Along with your donations of close to $4000, I’ve even received the following juicy little notes of encouragement that feed my soul:

Andrea, I don’t find the right words to describe how much I admire you for the way you have managed to go through the battle with cancer, and for what you are doing right now… I wish you all the best!!

    Dear Andrea,nOne of the blessings of taking part in something like the Run for the Cure is bearing witness to the humanity that surrounds it, listening to stories and meeting survivors and others whose lives have been touched by the disease. Carving out time to get behind a cause is one very tangible thing we can do to effect change that impacts others far beyond our reach. nnMay the Run for the Cure and all it involves bring you great satisfaction and joy. Your passion for life is palpable and casts a beautiful, healing light on us all, Andrea.nnLove, Jenny

    It is 31 degrees out and I just got chills and goose bumps (and tears welling up) reading that. Must be hormonal. (But I do love you)

    Hmmm. Hormones…. I remember them.nThere’s another “Happiness Is…” topic: The bright side of treatment-induced menopause. nAt least until my beard and mustache fill in.
