I was going to write a Music Monday today but I just watched one of my favorites on YouTube, Louise Pentland of Sprinkleofglitter and I was so touched by her story and wanted to help.
In her video, she speaks of her late mother, Diana Jane who unfortunately was diagnosed with breast cancer at the age of 35, when Louise was 5 years old. Two years later, she lost her battle to cancer at the young age of 37.
In honor of both her mother and breast cancer awareness, she has dyed her hair pink!
If you may know, my grandpa died of colon cancer this past summer so this hits close to home. What struck me the most out of this video was Louise mentioning how cancer doesn’t die when your loved one has passed. “Even though I don’t have cancer, I still live with cancer because it took her”.
Louise has started a campaign to raise money for cancer research so I’ll be including the link for that but also some other sites as well. If you can donate, great! However, if you can’t, I think I can speak on behalf of Louise and I and say call up someone you haven’t talked to in awhile.
I’ll talk you soon,
