I am still working away on editing, so I am not going to be able to post much today. I do want to let you know that 100% of proceeds for sales of Entangled, a Paranormal Anthology, still go to benefit the Breast Cancer Research Foundation THROUGH THE END OF AUGUST! There is still time to buy the book for such an incredible cause. Besides, the book itself is incredible, so you can’t lose! And just think – Christmas in July – you can buy the book for those ‘hard-to-buy-for’ friends and family members (and NOT so hard to buy for also!) and feel good about your purchase!
Click the link above to read my review on Amazon and, if you would, please click the “This Review Was Helpful” button, and then comment on your purchase? It will help me draw attention to the book and the good work the BCRF is doing! Remember, at $2.99, it costs less than a single Starbucks Latte, and it does a whole lot more good for your body and your soul!
As a breast cancer survivor, my heart hurts to know that Ms. Wetzel is gone. My deepest sympathies to her family and friends.
Everybody had something to say about Angelina Jolie during May. You couldn’t open a newspaper or magazine, or read a blog without hearing an opinion about her risk for breast cancer and her individual decision. This dialogue was probably the biggest breast cancer conversation we have had as a nation so far. Everybody had an opinion.
Me? I couldn’t muster much interest. I kept thinking about Maria Wetzel. Her story wasn’t making the NY Times or CNN. While Angelina was announcing to the world her tough decision, Maria was making the decision to enter Hospice care.

And I didn’t even know it. I saw a banner ad today from Blue Buffalo, which says that they are for more information).
Several years ago I lost my big blue lovebug, Tolkein, my Chow, to cancer. No matter that I gave them all their shots, fed them well, they got plenty of fresh air and exercise, they still got taken out by this horrible disease. He was with me for eighteen years, so we had a long run, but it was a horrible way to lose my poor baby.
More recently, while I went through my own treatment for stage-three breast cancer, I also lost my beautiful Lily, a 105-lb white boxer, whom I adored.
To add to the pain, my gorgeous Satie, a Lilac Point Siamese, died from the same horrible disease. Lily passed in her sleep thanks to big doses of pain meds, but my wonderful veterinarian, Dr. Valori, from Table Mountain Veterinary Clinic, was kind enough to come out in the night and allow me to hold Satie while she took away his pain for the final time. I was at one of my own lowest points at that time, and Dr. Valori’s kindness was an incredible gift. (More about Charlie later, he has his own story.)
