Trish at The Domestic Fringe is celebrating her one year bloggerversary and she had the most wonderful idea on a great way to party AND make a difference!She is celebrating the lives of women who are fighting breast cancer, either in treatment or in support of friends and loved ones. I have two wonderful friends who are both survivors of double mastectomies and another friend who is just beginning the battle.
A lot of you know Cher of the Texas Woman fame and her outrageous Totally Tasteless Tuesdays posts! She is chronicling her journey and doing it as only the Texas Woman can. Her gift of gab and wicked sense of humor tells me like it is...no holds barred...or breasts! She is inspiring and puts a face (and Mohawk) to a disease that none of us want to think about...much less face. We all have that someone we look up to and use as a model for our lives...well people, Cher is my Betty Ford! Tricia is hostessing this event to celebrate a year of blogging and has Mr. Linky up for y'all to see all the party goers. I am so proud to be among the Partiers in Pink! She has also provided many links on her party post for more information on breast cancer and I'd like to add the Susan B. Komen Foundation to the list. If you have the chance, please read Nancy Brinker's story of her sister Suzy's fight with breast cancer. It will break your heart and make you angry all at the same time. In the 26 years since its inception, there have been major breakthroughs, but so much more needs to be done.
It's high time we all got involved and worked to help find the cure. Ladies, I want you to pull your big girl britches up NOW and let's all get busy...even if it's baby steps!
Together, I know we can make a difference and help erase this disease once and for all. It's not too late to join the party, so whaddya say...let's get this party started!!!
The rules are simple...just go to The Domestic Fringe and link up with Mr. Linky...be sure and mention our Hostess with the mostest Tricia and wear something pink! Oh yeah, I failed to mention that, didn't I? You MUST wear pink to the party! This requires a photo...not that I don't trust you to say you're wearing pink. It's just so much fun to blackmail, I mean see all of you in your pink attire!
What about moi, you ask? Well...after several taste tests of the above, I was able to come up with.....
