I had this "letter" lying around now for 12 months, maybe more. The idea was to take it to the beach, make an image and do something corny with it.
I love being by the Sea and so on. I live, paddle and breathe and nearly died in the sea, yet couldn't want any more than I have right now. -
My wife just posted something on her facebook and this has prompted me to post the image here. Cancer. The big "C". -
One day last week unfolded in a meaningful way. After I had processed the image quickly, I sent this to a cancer survivor for thinking she would love the image, she did, and immediately passed it on to someone else who was struggling, as she would do knowing her! -
Next I saw a post for the cancer council looking for more participants in a Australian Breakthrough Cancer (ABC) Study ( need approx 50,000 people). So I signed up. -
I listen to a couple of podcasts, a new podcast come out, gobsmacked, again the theme of cancer reoccurs. -
Also was lucky enough to attend a fundraiser for the Tour De Cure the following night! -
I don't know what it means but one of those chain of events I had to share.
So my initial idea for a corny pun was "I love being by the sea"
So it turned into the message to the lady as a cancer survivor - - "We live by the sea, and with the BIG C" keep shining your light! -
Our family like so many others is and has been "touched" by cancer. If someone you know needs a little joy and hope, please share the image if you think it might just add a nice moment to the day. . . . . .
