Love the cause hate the prompt

I hate hate hate this daily inspiration. It makes me think of my mother, who died of brain cancer almost 6 years ago.

I have seen and even been involved in the Susan G Komen fight for breast cancer and they have received more than half a billion dollars since they started but it is for breast cancer.

ALS affects 5600 people per year and about 30,000 people have it. I know it is aggressive and the life expectancy is 3 to 5 years. I cant claim to know how anyone feels but I do understand what they are going through.

The national brain Tumor Society receives around 6 million per year and there are about 50,000 people that are diagnosed per year with brain cancer.

You can call me bitter but the brain cancer in my mother was a second primary as she was a breast cancer survivor of 11 years when she was told on her birthday that she had brain cancer. She was given 3 years and fought with everything she had. It ended after 4 craniotomies and 3 and a half years. She never complained but you could see the pain on her face.

Now what really makes me bitter I have also lost my paternal grandmother, maternal grandmother, mother-in-law, and best friend to cancer. My daughter will not ever meet the wonderful women they were.

Sorry I had to get it out. I dont think that the ALS story is a globally appealing topic. Check the numbers 30,000 have it and there are about 7.2 billion people on the planet.

I am glad that they have so many people dedicated to helping their cause, currently at $31 million in donations.

No thanks to the daily inspiration for the bad memories

      Thank you for the feedback, I have always considered myself an artist although technical writing is a big part of my job. My husband has been telling me I have a way with words and I really should put them down so I am giving it a try. Thanks again

    going to be able to savor safe washing for practically any form of clothing.

    Many manufacturers using the latest in technology strive hard to take appliances in to the market in this type of way that these are environmentally friendly.
