Many of you may have heard or seen about the beautiful Emma from Crazy With Twins and her battle against cancer. She was facing the possibility of not being able to hug her beautiful girls for weeks due to the aggressive radiation she needed to fight her cancer. Thanks largely to her tenacity and strength she managed to flush the radiation from her body in just seven days and was able to go home and kiss her three babies.
Cancer seems to be everywhere at the moment, I've heard so many tales of different types affecting the loved ones of friends and family. As a result, on July 7th I will be taking part in my local Race for Life with my Mother in Law, Sister in Law and Niece. I'm no runner so I plan to carry Little Miss so all the 'women' on that side of the family will be in our team. I hope this will show a tangible 'shoulder to shoulder' support with those living with this dreadful disease.. If you'd like to sponsor us you can do so by clicking the link top right. I know that the lovely Emma is also taking part in Race for Life and, actually, she's far more inspirational than me so you may be better off clicking through to her blog and sponsoring her instead.
I've met Emma twice now and enjoyed every minute, her smile really lights up a room! I'm looking forward to our next meeting in July at our next Tefal Innovation Panel get together when we'll be able to share Race for Life war stories. I'm hoping Emma is smiling lots today and , if you aren't Emma, here's a photo of my Little Miss to help you with that. Emma has met my gorgeous girl - she's shouting in this photo, she was much quieter when they saw each other!
In all seriousness, please, please, please get any lumps or bumps looked at. I've had two moles removed over the past twelve years. Both were worrying looking and had changed in appearance. I now have two scars where they once were. Thankfully neither was any cause for further concern but, as I'm really fair skinned I know that I need to keep an eye on these things. It is scary but timing is crucial. Do it as soon as you spot it, book that appointment.
