You can read Ceekay's story here.
Ceekay's story held special meaning for me because I lost my "little sister", Nancy, to ovarian cancer in November. As many of you know, she is the inspiration for this blog. I was struck by the similarities between Ceekay's story and Nancy's. In her blog entry from August 13, 2008, Nancy wrote, "I have learned to appreciate the grace and joy of the simple things in life, and really to believe the adage "don't sweat the small stuff"... it really is mostly all small stuff". You can read Nancy's story here.
Both women's stories share the same theme...enjoy life's simple pleasures, don't spend too much time worrying about the little things, and it's O.K. to and "use the fancy towels". I think there is an important message here...let's listen!
And after you use those fancy towels, please learn the symptoms of ovarian cancer...they often go unnoticed but they are there if you know what to look for. I've listed them at the bottom of my left sidebar and hope you'll take a moment to read them. Two brave women, Ceekay and Nancy, have told us their stories so that we can learn to both enjoy today and make sure that we are around to play with our grandchildren tomorrow.
