It makes me sick.
I'm going to do three things about it. First, I'm making a donation to the American Cancer Society for their work in preventing and curing different forms of cancer. Second, I'm making a donation to the M. D. Anderson Cancer Center in Houston, for treating and curing so many of my friends and family in East Texas. And third...
I'm giving away FIVE FREE CHEMO PILLOWS during the month of November. If I can't rid the world of this terrible scourge, I can damned well comfort some of the people who have to fight it.
Chemo (or Comfort) Pillows are 14" x 14" pillows that I personalize for the recipient. The pillows feature pictures of the patient's family and loved ones (that includes pets!) and motifs and colors that they like. They are emotionally comforting and physically soft, and give people something to look at and think about while they go through chemotherapy sessions. And as two people have said, they make the recipients remember what -- and whom -- they are fighting for.
