Welcome to the Breast Cancer Awareness Hop Hosted by The Review Wire and Chatty Patty’s Place!
While you normally wouldn’t normally associate a Fandango gift card with Breast Cancer, I would. I’m 50 years old and I’ve had friends affected by breast cancer that have children. Please believe me (and you probably know from your own experience) cancer affects the WHOLE family. You can try to shield the children from as much of it as you can, but these kids, they are SO smart and pick up on SO much.
Kids need a break from everything that is going on and time to go out have a little bit of fun with their friends. Just a break. This might give them time out of the house to share their feelings/fears with their friends. It might just be a break, plain and simple.
As much as you think of the lady going through breast cancer and her spouse, try to think of children too. That’s why I wanted to give something that would help a child get out of the house for awhile. This could be for the adults too. I’m just a Mom and I think of Gracie. I would want her to get out and have breaks away from what was going on if I should ever go through this DREADED disease.
In the initial entry box, you know I always ask a question. I’m going to answer my part of the question here. Breast cancer has affected my life several times, I’m waiting on a very good friend to hear her news right now. The biggest impact it has had on my life was a girl that I grew up with in my teens. We didn’t stay as close as I wish we had. We had daughters the same age though. They met (and became friends) while I visited my friend and took items to her home. We made the trip several times before my friend passed away. The girls were in 9th grade. Her spouse passed away just a year or two later. Guys, We were all around 50 years old. Our daughters though, are CLOSE still. They don’t attend the same school, they don’t live in the same town. These two girls are still close though. They are still at each other’s home on a regular basis. I hope they stay close. Breast cancer has affected me several times, but this is the most profound.
So, this giveaway is different than my “normal” self sponsored giveaways. It is for a $25 Fandango gift card and it is valid in the US only. I need for the winner to reply to my winning e-mail within 48 hours or I will have to choose a new winner. It’s a rafflecopter form, so please give it time to load.
