A New Year, A New Page; All About Me

Saturday, January 10, 2009

I decided to incorporate things about me and my life into my Sparks Page. It took me 11 months to come up with this, I don't know why? My background is a watercolor (not mine) with colors which make me happy. I want so muchto oil paint & water color but don't have the energy nor place to paint.

I changed my icon to reflect how I want to be totally free from the bondage of weight. I want to dance with joy!

I've been working on my family tree and history for over 30 years. Due to births, deaths, marriages and new info on the web, it is always needing updates.

Lastly, I honor my mother who lost her life to breast cancer. Hopefully this image will remind all who see my page that they need to do a breast self exam AND get a YEARLY Mammogram!

    My grandmother died from cancer in 1969 or so. At that time she told her children she had lung cancer - but after my mom and aunt both had breast cancer, they suspected that she started with breast cancer as well and it spread to her lungs (she wasn't a smoker). That was definitely a different time in terms of diagnosis and treatment.

    This is one of the reasons I am so serious about losing weight at this point. I know the genetic cards are stacked against me and obesity is a contributing factor to breast cancer.

    Thank you for your kind comments! I can't wait until we three meet and hope it is soon. My mom died in 1964, way before much more was available. I'm so happy about the advances and I'm glad your mother survives this dreaded disease.

    emoticon back at ya!

    I like your changes! The memorial to your mom is really nice. My mom had breast cancer too, she is a 10 year survivor. It's a powerful message to both of us - being overweight increases your chance of breast cancer, so we must lose this weight!!!
