This is my own personal cause & for those that don't have one, they may want to think about donating to one of the Sarcoma
Foundations below. My mother passed away from a rare form of cancer called Lipsarcoma. It is one of about 50 subtypes of sarcomas that affect all age groups from the youngest to the oldest. It is a
"a cancer that begins in the muscle, fat, fibrous tissue, blood vessels, or other supporting tissue of the body". There is no cure & funding is low because of its rarity. As some of you may know,
the rarer the form of cancer, the less money that is usually allocated to it by the larger organizations or the NIH (National Health Institute) as well as fewer people donate because they just don't
know about it. This cancer just keeps coming back, grows back where it already was & spreads to other areas as well. You can learn more about it at these links.

Back on the 3rd, I wrote a post about my hubby's brother's wife who is fighting stage 4 breast cancer. You can read that post HERE. I also provided this info:
This year Kimberly’s very close friend, Lisa (French) Stiles, is dedicating her walk to Kimberly at the November Susan G. Komen 3-Day, walk for a cure to breast cancer. This 60 mile walk helps to fund researchers in their efforts to find cures for breast cancer. We are hoping you will join us in sponsoring Lisa with her efforts to make the 3-Day walk a success. Below is information on how to help Lisa reach her goal of $2,300. No contribution is too small.
Kimberly is having a double mastectomy today. They will do additional tests while she is in there on lymph nodes & a couple other things to be sure that all is taken care of during this surgery. They have been controlling the cancer that has spread to the bones so we hold very positive thoughts for her recovery!
I would appreciate all your good thoughts her way - Thank you!!!!!
Also, if you would like to contribute to the walk that is dedicated to her above it would be appreciated as well.
There are many other ways to help support breast cancer. Below are some links:
Lots more ways to help out there. These are just a few. If you have links to other ways to help, please feel free to leave them in a comment OR of you want to share a personal story. THX!!!!
