Pink for Hope & Links

Before I share links today, I'd like to give my aunt a shout-out. She's been undergoing chemo for Stage IV breast cancer. She's finished with the chemo, but it was only the first step in her fight. Today she goes in for a mastectomy, then will be doing radiation.

A. Thornton,
Thinking of my Aunt Rosi and family today.

Now for some links.

Here's to your aunt's recovery. Such a hard and long process, but I've known several people who have gone through it and are cancer free.

Dear Shannon,

Hugs, your friend,

Your Aunt Rosi must be a brave determined woman. Many prayers for her and her family.

Shannon Lawrence said...

Thank you! She finds out in a few days how much of the radiation treatment she'll need. Hoping it won't be much, as she's already been through chemo and the surgery.

Shannon Lawrence said...

Thank you! She came through the surgery well and drove for the first time today since she's off pain medication. She's a fighter.

Shannon Lawrence said...

Thank you! She came through the surgery well. Good luck with the links you bookmarked!

Shannon Lawrence said...

She's doing well after the surgery, thank you! Yes, I have a friend who had a mastectomy this week, as well, who is only three years older than I am. Eye opening.

Shannon Lawrence said...

Thank you, Gary. I appreciate it. She's doing very well. Hugs back.

Shannon Lawrence said...

Oh, she definitely is! And she's doing well after the surgery, thank you!
