Still Kind of A Big Deal Around Here

The following post is from one year ago today and was titled Kind of A Big Deal Around Here.

It still is.

Always will be.

And it's worth repeating.

Enjoy ... And LIVESTRONG.

Today is LIVESTRONG Day.

Why today? It's a cancerversary. On October 2, 1996, Lance Armstrong was diagnosed with advanced testicular cancer, and before he knew whether he would survive, he started his foundation to fight cancer.

But the 
Lance Armstrong Foundation (LAF) does so much more than raise funds or awareness.
It helps people affected by cancer.

It inspires the 
will to fight — and the courage to keep going.

It keeps you 
fired up — and channeling your inner badass.

It makes you feel like you're 
part of something much bigger than yourself — and reminds you that you are never alone.

It reminds you to hang tough and keep believing that 
prayers will be answered.

It teaches you that 
"unity is strength, knowledge is power, and attitude is everything." 

It helps people affected by cancer. 
I know. 

And if you've been to Halfglassistan before, you know, too.

If you're new here, just click on those links above and see how a little yellow bracelet, a slogan, and 
everything they represent carried me and everyone I love through one hell of a year.

    My next scan is 10/11 to see what that pesky lung nodule is up to. I keep busy with Baby C so I don't think about the big bad C, but you know how that goes, now that scantime is comin' around.


I do a little happy dance every time I get a comment. Please, won't you contribute to that geeky deliciousness?
