I'll be honest, I never heard of Livestrong Day until I saw it on POD's Twitter feed. I've been trying to figure out something to write that won't sound trite or snobbish; but the fact is my family has been very fortunate so far, and I haven't known anybody with cancer. My experience with it has been limited to waiting on people in restaurants who have mentioned it, and losing a few pets to cancer.

Still, I wanted to do something for this day, to at least contribute and spread awareness a bit. I'd originally thought to make pineapple mimosa cupcakes to go along with the yellow theme ... but between school, work, and being oddly exhausted all week, I put it off too long and my pineapple molded. C'est triste. Instead, I have only this inadequate blog post.

For links to some moving stories about living with cancer, please read POD's Livestrong Day blog post.

  1. Hey Purplegirl!! I've known many people with cancer and have several types of it in my family. I didn't even realize it was Livestrong Day, so I'm happy to see this post. Thanks for the post - off to check out that link now...
