Less Cancer, More Birthdays

We have all been touched by, affected, or related to someone whom has had cancer. My grandmother was diagnosed with cancer in the Spring of 2004.  At first the prognosis was good, and then all of the sudden, it went from good to very bad. 

She passed away in September of 2004.  Ironically, less than month later, I found out that I was pregnant with our son.  We had been trying for almost two years to get pregnant.  My grandmother never got to meet that spunky kid that I refer to as Angry Kid on my blog.

In April, I was at the Mom 2.0 Summit Conference and heard about The American Cancer Society’s Birthday Campaign, More Birthdays. We heard about the amazing things that they are doing to promote More Birthdays, and we even sang “Happy Birthday”. There was not a dry eye in the room.

The More birthdays Campaign is about the following:

We believe every birthday you celebrate is a victory. Another year that cancer has not prevailed. Your birthday means everything to us. That’s why we’re dedicated to creating a world with less cancer and more birthdays. Thanks in part to our work, 11 million cancer survivors will celebrate another birthday this year. But we can’t stop there. With your help, we can create a world with even more celebrations, more laughter, and more birthdays for all.
