We LiveStrong Today

Today we turn our blog yellow to join our pals throughout the blogosphere who are participating in LiveStrong Day.  Our Pals Milo and Alfie and the Zoolatry girls first posted about this day and you can read more about it HERE.  We've seen way too much cancer over the last year and we are purring and praying for a world without cancer.

We celebrate Auntie El who has been through a rough time in the last year.  We know she still suffers from the effects of her chemo and we hope that things improve a lot soon.  Her scans have been good and she goes for another PET scan in October.  We're purring and praying for her continued improvement.  Auntie El LivesStrong every day!


On September 21, 2010  we lost our sweet sisfur Sniffie to cancer.  We miss her very much and hope that she and our pal Sweet Praline and Little Beignet (who also went to the Bridge because of cancer) are having a good time together at the Bridge.


If you would like to see the official LiveStrong slideshow visit the LiveStrong blog.  Many thanks to Mom Chandra from Life from a Cat's Perspective for doing the slideshow.

May we all LiveStrong and remember those lost and those fighting until cancer is wiped away forever.

Cat said...

Live Strong...for those who should have, but couldn't...they deserve to be remembered. And a cure must be found so that cancer is only a thing of the past and no longer a real and present danger. Too many have gone...so much love lost...purr for a cure. Purrs, Lautrec, Tiny, Ellwood and Ginger

Purring for cancer to get beaten and weepy about how damaging it is. Auntie El is in our thoughts as she has the PET Scan as there is so much that needs to be done. Purring light that the doctors might get cures for this disease.
