As we know, in the States it's ovarian cancer awareness month. Here in the UK, it's in March. Odd. But it gives us a chance to shout about 'being AWARE' twice as much and from both sides of the pond ;)

And this morning I noticed this site. I haven't quite worked out how one uses it yet, but they gave me such a nice shout I thought I'd reciprocate. Oh and also to nick the Kelly Ripa video - we love her, she is constantly raising money with Electrolux for the OCRF.

Go here and try this virtual steaming thing - every time you do, Electrolux donates $1 to the OCRF fund. Or visit the site - you could win a washer dryer!

Oh, and while you're bouncing about the internet on all these links, please go here too - I'm not Kelly Ripa, but I am trying my best to raise K4 for research into women's cancers…ovarian, breast and cervical. If you can, please help me reach my target?  You won't win a washer dryer mind you…



  1. Hi Sandhy! I wrote the post on SITS today that featured your blog. I hope that's okay!! I couldn't find any contact information on here for your permission, so.....I just did it anyways. :)

  2. I just lost my cousin to Ovarian Cancer in June. It was her second time battling it and it was just too advanced this second time around. IT happened so fast...we're all still in shock.
    I am now going to my doctor to be screened for it, to see if I am someone who has to worry about it. It's a new test that will also screen me for Breast Cancer, as my father's mother battled with that as well.
    It's very scary, but something I feel is necessary. Thanks for sharing your stories and your humor. It's rather inspiring!
    I'm glad I was checking out SITS today, it's how I found you.

  3. I'm stopping by from SITS. Wishing you the best of luck and saying a big THANKS for sharing your story! I just posted about next months Making Strides Against Breast Cancer walk in Boston. Stop by to read it if you have time.
    Can I introduce you to another awesome blogger who is also a cancer survivor? Her stories are amazingly truthful and inspiring.
    She's also the founder of Spirit Jump
    check it out! : )

  4. Found you through SITS today. I think what you're doing to promote Ovarian Cancer awareness is great!

  5. Wow! Thank you for documenting all of this. What an inspirational story for all of us. I appreciate your laughter and joy.
