one month later: brain cancer on the web

Yesterday marked one month since we lost Lola2Amara.


Don't grieve for me, for now I'm free
A friendship shared, a laugh, a kiss,
Ah yes, these things I too will miss.
Be not burdened with times of sorrow,
I wish you sunshine of tomorrow.
My life's been full, I've savored much,
Good friends, good times, a loved one's touch.
Perhaps my time seemed all too brief;
Don't lengthen it now with undue grief.
Lift up your hearts and share with me,
God wanted me now; He set me free.
Brain cancer may have taken my Mom. But her legacy lives on in my family.

And one of the things Mom really worked for was brain cancer awareness.

As an oncology nurse, Mom wanted nothing more than to find a cure for cancer.

But what would upset her is that many times, the public only recognized one or two kinds of the disease. Race for the Cure ring a bell?

So now I'm on a mission to help raise awareness of brain cancer.

One easy way I can is to share with you some online resources that really help me.

Three websites that truly helped me
And some tweeps I follow on Twitter

  1. Good for you. Spreading the word is the way to bring about awareness. I bet Race for the Cure only started out with one person sharing some information and look to where it has grown. I hope awareness for brain cancer gets to that level some day soon. My high school volleyball coach passed away from a brain tumor so I'm with you on spreading the word.
