Drop a Love Bomb (Oct 14th)

Love Bomb

Cancer is one of those rubbish illnesses that affects lots of people. Not just the person suffering from it but their families too.

A friend of mine was diagnosed with breast cancer a while back and she is now in remission – she ran a 10K race two weeks ago (or was it 3 I’m not sure now!) to race money for Sue Ryder Care which is a charity near where we live that supports people with cancer.

I saw Lauren’s email appear in my inbox and this one struck home and I felt that I had to repost it so you out there would see it too. Please take the time to go and comment on Nanette’s Blog. Thank you 🙂

Hi everyone!

Some of you reading this email are on the Love Bomb team, and some are part of ItStartsWithUs, and some are part of both! This week, Love Bomb is doing a joint mission with ItStartsWithUs. It’s so great to have all of you.

Today’s mission is for a woman named Nanette. She was suggested to us by Lori, one of our Love Bomb members.

NANETTE IS A SINGLE MOTHER OF TWO (AGES 9 AND 13), AND WAS JUST RECENTLY DIAGNOSED WITH BREAST CANCER.

She has absolutely amazed me with her optimism, joy, and overwhelming hope for her future. I don’t know how she does it.

She has been dealing with losing her hair through chemo, and has been very sick – making work difficult for her. I admire Nanette for keeping her head up so high despite the physical pain, adjusting to losing her hair, the stress from work – all while taking such good care of two kids on her own.

This week has been rough for her, and she needs encouragement. I am so excited for all of us to be her cheerleaders! If you’ve been reading the articles published about Love Bomb lately, we have been referred to as a compassion flash-mob. I LOVE it.
Let’s share our love, support, and encouragement with Nanette!

Please join me in commenting on Nanette’s blog here.

Time to drop a Love Bomb, guys!
Lauren

I am loving the comments but they need to go on Nanette’s Blog not here on mine.
