Recently, a co worker asked me how she could help her friend who was going through cancer surgery and treatment. And I gave her a few suggestions...like being a good listener, making a meal, taking her pet for walks, and giving her some small gifts like socks and moisturizers for starters. But here is an even more complete list...and I agree with all the suggestions:
Sunday September 22 from 6 to 8pm come on out to Charming Charlie at Westfield Mall or Fallen Timbers and shop for a great cause. During those hour Charming Charlie will donate 10% of the profit to the Hickman Cancer Center's "Bite for the Fight" event in October.
Bite for the Fight is a one mile route on the campus of Flower Hospital...and you get to sample delicious foods from local restaurants along the way.

So I had some help cleaning out my closet and getting rid of the clothes that don't fit anymore due to my 20 pound weight loss during chemo therapy. Jane Wurth, from Ragazza boutique in Perrysburg and Sylvania, came into my closet and offered some sound advice...Live for today, not 20 pounds ago. Here is the result of her efforts...3 bags full!
Where to go with used clothing? How about the Discovery Store of the American Cancer Society. Located on W. Sylvania Ave. in Sylvania...in the Saxon Square Shopping Center. Lots of volunteers working their magic there...and all to help raise funds for research for all types of cancer...including my own, NonHodgkins Lymphoma.
And here is one of my new outfits from Ragazza in downtown Perrysburg. My old black sweather paired with a new, hip blouse and scarf. I love it!
