Hello this Morning.  Team PoJo ( our Relay for Life team) has recently signed up for the American Cancer Society’s, Bark For Life event; in Statesville, NC.  Bark for Life events happen, all over.

Our particular event, takes place at Lakewood Park;  in Statesville.  The date of the Event this year, is April 12, 2014; and you can register any time; even at 10:00 AM, the day of the walk.  The opening Ceremony is at 11:00 AM; with the Survivor lap occurring, at 11:30.  The closing ceremony is at 2:00 PM.

Last year’s event was a beautiful sunny day.  Joe and I loved being there.  The turnout was incredible and the dogs were adorable.  You couldn’t help leaving the event feeling happy, and deeply touched.

For those of you that are not familiar with Bark for Life, this is a non competitive walk, for dogs and their owners.  This walk raises funds for cancer research; while, bringing awareness to cancer in humans and pets.  So far this event has 26 participants and 13 teams.

Check to see if there is a Bark for Life event, near you; and be ready to have a doggone good time.

The Who and Why, of A Rainbow of Colors

The Who and Why, of A Rainbow of Colors

As the Author of this blog, I would like to introduce myself a little better.  I have an About page, but that is a small part of this blog.

I was introduced to WordPress about a year ago.  I have spent a lot of time as Administrator of a WordPress/ E commerce website.  This daily working with the website was my “breaking in”.  I love the blog much better;  I have to be honest.  My Husband and I,  are Team PoJo in our local Relay for Life event.  All of this is therapeutic for me, in a way.

Once you are diagnosed with cancer, you never get away from it.  Not that I dwell on it.  I’m sure that people who have been diagnosed and go through treatments, know what I’m talking about.  I have this need to help others; so, they won’t have to experience what I did.  It saddens me; when another person I know, has been diagnosed with cancer.

When I was setting up my menu, I tried to think how I could help; with my posts.  I love to cook; and though I try to watch what I eat, I do eat a variety of meats.  I have made the switch to alkaline water; and, I have been exploring organic and non GMO.

I hope, that my posts will help someone.  Someone in treatment; or, a family member, with someone in treatment.  None of my recipes will be involved.  When, you’re not feeling well; or you are a caregiver, energy can be a premium.  I will share different resources.  Some, I picked up while I was going through treatment and, others as I find them.  If  I have helped someone, in some way, I will be happy.  I would like to say one more thing.  Welcome to, A Rainbow of Colors blog.
