Welcome to this week's addition of the Bugaboo Catch The Bug Challenge!
The thing I love about this week's challenge is just how many CAUSES there are.
Joy gave us a link to a Ribbon Awareness page and it really made me think just how many things have affected my life and the lives of others.
A Cause that is near and dear to my heart at this very moment is Esophageal Cancer Awareness. On January 21st of this year, my dad was diagnosed with Esophageal Cancer. Every day for the last 10 months my family has lived every day with next steps for treatment, chemo, radiation and worry. It is a cancer that until my dad was diagnosed with it, I'd never heard of. After his diagnosis, we've learned everything we could ever want to know about this disease.
Next week we have an appointment for another scope and biopsy to see if the 'area' that showed up on his most recent PET scan is cancer or radiation burn. We pray that it is the latter and that all his cancer has been treated.
If he wouldn't have gone to the Veteran's Hospital for a 'check-up' they would have found his cancer way too late.
So, not only is Esophageal Cancer a very important cause in our family, but also support of our veterans.
So, this week, because of all the causes that affect us all, we want you to share with us the causes that are near and dear to YOUR Heart!
