Raising awareness

I am re-posting of MeRaw, who has lost a young son to testicular cancer.
We all can contribute to raising awareness to help control cancer. Cancer is a very common disease (for example; in Canada, 45% of the residents are estimated to get cancer)…

On top of that, our special needs children/adults may require their families/health care team to be more vigilant about the cancer awareness/symptoms/management.
Help spread the word please.

The Journey of My Left Foot (whilst remembering my son)

Sunday 7th August

This weekend has been all about meeting up with survivors and raising awareness of Testicular Cancer, and taking part in the annual memorial trek up Mount Snowdon.

Last year I made a video to coincide with the weekend


This year I have decided to write a petition for Testicular Cancer screening to be made available to Special Needs young men.

Click on Frankie Angel bear to go to the petition

It would mean a great deal to me if you were to watch, read and sign.

The kindness episode

Kindness_jar

 

This is the first post for “The Kindness Episode“, focus of which is to remind us about all the kind, nice, beneficial, and good things we do or can do for other people and animals, our communities, our world, and our environment.

My kindness episode for today was to attempt to help an elderly lady who was struggling to get up from the chair at the hair salon. She managed it before I could reach her, but it took her perhaps 7 attempts to lift herself up off the chair. We exchanged smiles after that.

I felt sad for this, knowing that we all can find ourselves in the same situation one day. But I am also happy that the lady did not ask for help and continuously tried to get off the chair. Her autonomy and freedom are certainly well deserved.

I am sure you have had similar gestures of kindness and compassion for others today. Share and let us cherish with you if you wish.
