There are many things in my life that I love… however this post deals with 2 specific elements in that group. Those 2 elements are Baseball and My Sister.
For regular followers of my Twitter Feed, you know I love baseball. I don't splurge on much in my life, but one of the things I treat myself to every year is renewing my season ticket package so that I can watch my beloved Kansas City Royals. Now before you start with the jokes, no one knows better than I their history since 1986. However, they are MY team and it's MY hometown, so I suffer… but I still watch.
However, for this post, the other element is my sister. I only have one sibling… at it's her. I won't get into *all* the details, but here is a brief overview. About 6 years ago she noticed a small lump and went to the doctor for an exam, a mammogram followed. She was told to speak with her doctor who told her to "get her affairs in order". What followed was a roller coaster ride that encompassed about 3 months. Panic and fear, hugs and tears. It was a time the family struggled through.
Long story short… she beat it. My sister is a survivor!!! Because of what we went through as a family, I've "gotten in touch with my inner pink". I've become passionate about helping other families not have to go through what we did. It's probably one of the reasons that I'm so passionate about helping detect oral cancer at its earliest stages as well.
So, when I saw the info below, I knew I had to pass it along to all of you. This is a great opportunity to help someone less fortunate and to also have a chance to see the MidSummer Classic here in KC. If you have the means, it would mean a great deal to me if you could help. Even if you don't love baseball like I do, I'm sure there's a woman in your life that you love as much as I love my sister. Do it for them!
