2 days. Fewer than 48 hours until we come together and make a difference.
Yesterday, I sat and stared at the computer screen; I needed to write but I found myself unable to form the words. If I am honest, life hasn’t been easy lately; I feel like I am being reminded on an almost daily basis of how cruel life can be, how unjust life can be. When we lost Sarah to cancer our friendship group was not really prepared for it. How does anyone prepare themselves for losing their young, healthy friend? Focussing on Bloggers Beating Cancer means that, hopefully, I am trying to find some positive in all of this rubbish (I refrained from swearing *proud face*), I am trying to do something good. I want something good to come out of this. If the money that we raise means that we can help look after someone like Sarah, someone’s’ mum, make them more comfortable, then we should be happy. If it means that the money we raise can go towards working on a cure for cancer so that someday young children don’t have to know what it feels like to lose their young mum to cancer, then we should be happy. We are helping others.
We live in a fragile and broken world at the moment. A world that at times feels dark. This is our chance to remind ourselves of the good in the world, to come together, united as a community. Please join us and come together for #BloggersBeatingCancer. If you are at work then please don’t let that stop you. Request that you have a dress down day, and everyone donates £1, then donate that to #BloggersBeatingCancer. Instead of buying yourself that coffee on Friday, donate the money to #BloggersBeatingCancer. Every penny counts. If we all just contribute a little then we have the potential to raise a fortune. Our money can make a difference.
In England it is estimated that nearly 2 million people are living with undiagnosed lung cancer. Lung cancer is the second biggest killer of people in England.
Our money is important and money can make a difference. What makes us human is that above all we care. We care about each other. We care about those that have lost their lives to cancer, we care for those that are fighting cancer.
Let’s come together as a collective and show the world just how much we care.
