Whole lotta labia.
For those who were asking, there will be a party in remembrance of Caitlin this Sunday, come as you wish, the family will be welcoming visitors any time between 2 and 7pm. This is very informal, a celebration not a solemn service. If you're interested in attending please drop me a comment and I'll send you the details.|
Thank you to everyone for being so kind and compassionate to me (and to her for those who knew her). I can't tell you how much we've felt that love in the last few days. Please, for the women, educate yourselves about breast cancer in all it's forms. Cait's version didn't show up on mammograms, sonograms, or as lumps. And though it is visible in the external tissue it is initally misdiagnosed in almost all cases. For all of you, call the people you love, make sure they know. The last thing I said to Cait was that I loved her. I will treasure always that she knew that.
People say "Melly, what can I do to help?" Here's the best thing any of us can do to help: Support Susan G. Komen for the Cure in memory of Rise Sheridan-Peters. One in 8 women will get breast cancer, we will all feel the effects. With your help the Komen foundation is working for a cure, working to make my beautiful girl the last bright light snuffed out by this disease.
LLT and I are going to try to stop by on the way home from Crown. We're all thinking about you guys and sending good vibes.
please send details
thinking of you...
... and generally agreeing with your opinion of the universe on this point.
I'd also like to point out that, while much rarer than in women, men get breast cancer, too. We all need to be educated about this disease, not just us girls with the great racks.
