Lumps and Bumps and Things That Go.....

It's October. It is the month for Halloween and all things scary. All those things that go bump in the middle of the night. It is also Breast Cancer Awareness month. Fitting. Cancer is a pretty scary thing, breast cancer or other.

Several of my Blogger friends are involved in their own personal battles with cancer. And as far as awareness goes, their fights have certainly raised my awareness level.

"Go West, Feral Woman" had surgery today for a lime-sized mass in her pelvic region. She is a fighter. Stop by her blog to see her "I'm Ready" post and go to previous posts for more information if you care to. You'll see what I mean about her spirit! Go West, Feral Woman is one fire-spitting gal!

Leontien is gearing up for her second battle with cancer. She, too, is quite the fighter. Her spirit is apparent in her blog. Here are two posts that show just a bit of her feistiness!

I recently 'met' Mikael (via Blogger) who experienced colon cancer. She begins the description of her battle with vivid imagery. She is another woman who's picture should be used to illustrate the word, "fighter"!

Take a moment to visit any or all of these sites. Give the fighters a word of encouragement. Help them in their battle against lumps and bumps. Remember others who are fighting this battle as well.

From goulies and ghosties and long-leggedy beasties
And things that go bump in the night
Good Lord, deliver us!

In response to a comment I started a list of Bloggers or their families, who are fighting this battle. The list is on the right sidebar of my blog. If you know of others who should be added to the list, who can use some encouragement and support, please let me know.


  1. I will go visit the other two fighting women...we all just have today never know what is around the corner...

  2. Life at Star's Rest is another fighter.

  3. One often takes for granted his/her status until the "battles" of others are known.


  4. Great post Dreaming! I have helplessly watched the Monster take those who are the most near and dear to me, my two maternal Aunts, and my mom. I know first hand the toll it takes on the familys as well as the fighter. My prayers, thoughts, vibes, or whatever go out to every one affected by the Monster.


What thoughts do you have?
