Profile of Our Personal Hero: Mom F

Today I just want to point out a friend of ours that is also a great personal hero.
People who know me, know that I've always been a fan of superheroes, but some superheroes don't wear special costumes or fight evil (although we all put up with idiots- LOL).
L to R: Mom F, Rob, Braden, Tom
  Our personal hero is "Mom F." She faced colon cancer about 10 years ago and beat it. Now she's dealing with another cancer and is undergoing chemo. Instead of wallowing in sorrow or depression, she says "bring on the juice, I'm going to kick some ass."  We LOVE her attitude. It's that attitude that is going to get her past it, and help eradicate the cancer. It's that attitude that will bring her to full health. Optimism is the key.
  I wish we lived closer to help bring her to and from her chemo treatment, but her amazing son and his partner are up there this week doing just that.
  Mom F has a great sarcastic sense of humor that always makes us laugh  and forwards the funniest jokes to us every day. No matter what life throws at her, she still manages to make others smile and that's another mark of a true hero.  
  So, today I ask that you send Positive thoughts and prayers her way to help her overcome the cancer and regain health. We already know she's going to beat it.

Gift/Memorial Suggestions

Several of our friends have lost loved ones (human and pets) and we found that one of the best ways to honor their memory is to give to an animal charity.
What better way to recognize a life of love, than by giving another life a chance for love?
We donate to many animal rescues, but because we volunteer with
DC Weimaraner Rescue and Coast-to-Coast Dachshund Rescue, those are our 2 favorites.
Consider giving the chance of life to a dog or cat.
