Make Yourself Informed...RAK Involved
This blog entry is in honor of my dear Aunt Evelyn. My aunt recently passed away. It was a shock! Although she was advanced in age and had been struggling with Parkinson's disease, my aunt was handling life wonderfully and gracefully. She was never known to complain about her personal discomforts. She was energized by her children, grandchildren, and great grandchildren. Her passion in life was her family and her love for Christ. She lived her life pursuing both.
My Aunt Evenly become very ill around Christmas and continually was seeking medical help. Due to the nature of the Parkinson illness physicians put off her symptoms to either the Parkinson's or the medication related to the Parkinson’s. When she was last hospitalized she was finally diagnosed with Breast Cancer. But it was inflammatory breast cancer. It is a killer that most people are not aware of, even doctors. She passed away quickly but in a great deal of pain as the cancer quickly took everything away from her. I've heard the stories of her suffering, but also of her testimony of her steadfast faith as she moved from this life into her Savior’s arms. She prayed, sang, and said goodbye to her family. My cousin said she not only lost her mother, but she lost her best friend. Aunt Evelyn will never be forgotten.
In honor of my Aunt and my cousin I want to give a Scrapbook RAK away to one person. Click on the link to the right about Inflammatory Breast Cancer and watch the new report concerning it. It does contain some graphic photos so be aware. Leave a comment. When I get back from vacation on Monday I will choose one person to receive a box of fibers, ribbons, and other goodies. My hope is that you are informed and also to make sure you take the opportunity to tell someone how much you love them and honor them. If at least 50 comments are left I will add a Making Memories Tag Maker tool.
