I am joining Kate on Thin Ice with her Blog Hop Bingo to raise awareness of Breakthrough Breast Cancer.
Did you know that around 1000 women die from breast cancer every month? One in eight women will develop breast cancer at sometime in their lifetime. It is important to note that men also get breast cancer. The good news is that more people are surviving breast cancer due to greater awareness, improved treatments and better screening.
Kate has challenged the blogging world to get 90 bloggers to write 90 words about a women that is important to them, mother, sister, daughter, friend, colleague anyone. So here is my 90 words about a very good friend.
This friend is a very strong and inspirational women, she was there with me right through my troubled pregnancy with TJ, she listened when I was upset about my traumatic birth and she helped me when I was at my worse with PND by getting me out of the house and walking, she even agreed to ‘babysit’ me when I wasn’t allowed to be left alone and NJ needed to be in the office. She always listens, never judges and gives excellent advice even when life is hard for her.
