I would like to introduce you to Bri (I hope she doesn’t mind, but I stole her picture). I do not actually know Bri. Here is what I do know about her: she is the author of the wonderful blog Figs With Bri, she is married, she lives in the amazing wine country of California and unfortunately, she is battling cancer.
The world of blogging is an amazing one. People reach out and help others in ways big and small on a daily basis. In an odd way, the blogosphere has become a new community. Much like I imagine a small town would be.
Right now, Bri needs help. The battle against cancer comes with a hefty price tag.
Please pop over to Jugalbandi and find out how you can help. The truth is that with a very small amount of money you can literally help save someone’s life. How often does an opportunity like that come around?
I am no stranger to cancer. My grandmother suffered wrist cancer back in the forties and breast cancer in the seventies. These occurrences happened in times when cancer was almost always a death sentence. My grandmother lived to be 92 years old and died of good old fashioned old age – cancer free. My best friend had ovarian cancer three years ago. She is now cancer free. I have so many success stories of people in my life who have beaten cancer with proper medical treatment, a great outlook on life and lots of laughter.
Along with my thoughts and prayers for Bri, I made a financial contribution – it was really easy – and I am hoping you will check it out and decide for yourself if you can help Bri in her fight as well.
Update – unfortunately, Bri lost her battle with cancer. She will be missed.
