The day after I found out I had cancer and the same day that I dreamed the idea of Little Pink Houses of Hope I had to tell my son I had cancer. But what very few people have heard is the story of Jake's response. The majority of his response will remain private as a memory that only our family ever needs to remember and hold onto as we continue this journey. But there is a touching story that I was unfortunately reminded of today with the passing of Elizabeth Edwards.
And so today, my heart goes out to the family of Elizabeth Edwards- to her children who watched their mom FIGHT and win. She won because she lived! There are so many people who have lost people that they love to the terrible disease of breast cancer as well as many other types of cancer. It is not the number of years that you have but how you spend each day. Live each day to the fullest and celebrate the life that you are living!
