My friend and fellow blogger Michael Walker, over at Defying Procrastination shared a story about his friend Kristin with me which I think I should share:
In August 2013, Kristin found a lump in her left breast. Since then her cancer has been upgraded to Stage 3 Invasive Ductal Carcinoma (1.9cm tumor + 1.1 cm satellite tumor) with HER2neu+ (Grade 3).... an aggressive form of Cancer that has invaded her lymph nodes. Kristin has a wonderful husband Wesley and two children Logan (13) and Skye (7), so her whole family is feeling the invasion of this horrible disease. This year will be quite a journey for her and she is feeling terribly scared but hopeful.
In her honor, Michael has relaunched his ebook, "Her Special Day Shoes," as a dedication to Kristin. All proceeds from the sale of this book will go to assist Kristin with her personal battle with breast cancer and to a National Breast Cancer Foundation account in her name - forever. Michael has added a few extra stories to the 2nd Edition version, as well as, a special dedication to her in the book. HER SPECIAL DAY SHOES
He has also made a video for her SEE VIDEO
I think this is a noble gesture and one we should all support.
I will, in my own little way, what about you?
