Fighting Cancer

Living for the dead, missing out on the living. Dee from PM Inc on Fighting Cancer @pmnp #AttackingCancer #Cancer Hi, my name is Dee; both my manager, Cindy, and I have been affected by Cancer. Through the loss of loved ones, supporting family and friends, having our own trials with it, it does sometimes seem like cancer is winning the battle. However, that is not exactly the case. Yes, it has taken some very important people from our lives but we have also learned more about ways to fight cancer. We know now that it is more than just genetics but also the environment you are in and what you take into your body.

October is Breast Cancer Awareness month but each month, day, and year is also a time to be aware of the new developments in fighting and surviving cancer and it’s treatments. A year ago I could not have told you why mom had to pass away. I could not have told you what good came from it. Today I know that she fought a long hard battle, that she was tired and her quality of life just was not the same. I can also tell you that she would not have wanted us to wallow in her passing. I did just that for several months; I was unwilling to let her go and because of it I ended up living for the dead and missing out on the living. I can barely remember any memorable moments over the past year because I spent so much of it disconnected from the world. Through my faith, I have been able to see the light of day again and know that Mom is safe in Heaven, no more suffering, no more treatments, no more blood disorders or other complications from cancer treatments.

In the past, I have tried to live a healthier life, I want to be around to watch my four grandchildren grow up and live to see my great-grandchildren. I also want to be there for my dad, so I have off and on attempted to live healthier but it was not until about 6 months ago I started sticking to it. I own a bicycle now, and yup I ride it. I go for walks every day even when it’s not convenient. Most days I try to go to bed at a decent hour so I can get much-needed rest. I pay more attention to not what’s just around me but what I put into my body. Having so many family members and my own trial with cancer, I am at too high of a risk to ignore it. So instead of waiting on it to happen, I am being proactive about it. Guess what? My family supports me in this.

For those who have lost someone to cancer, I do not know that we ever truly get beyond that point but we can live for them. We can fight for them. We can show the world they mattered by not sitting back and waiting for it to happen to us.

I hope that each person reading this takes something for themselves. Whether it is eating healthier, getting out and exercising more, or seeking support from a group or counselor, that they just make the conscious decision to do something and not wait on cancer or any other disease to affect their lives.

If you ever need a friend or someone to just listen and not judge, feel free to drop us a line. We do understand and being someone’s pen pal is just one way we can make a difference in other people’s lives.

Top Five Bloggers for the Month

Each month, the RLF Gems post ranks in the top ten, but is not
counted, in order to focus

on guests. The winners are judged by cumulative page
views, including return and unique visits. This month I was very surprised to
find myself in the running for both top blogger and top chatter. That’s never happened
before. The Cancer Awareness week tribute to a late friend and the MFRW
Founding Day tribute put me in both 2nd and 3rd place in both categories. Thank
you for the wonderful support. There was a tie for 5th place. I have noted the Cancer Awareness posts below.

Congratulations to each one!
1 Vicki Batman
(Cancer Awareness)
2 Kayelle Allen (MFRW Founding Day)
3 Kayelle Allen (Cancer Awareness)
3 Dee Owens (Cancer Awareness)
4 Emily Mims
5 Lloyd Meeker (Cancer Awareness), Mary J. McCoy-Dressel
Honorable mention:  Merry Holly

Top Chatters for the Month

Because the person who gets the most comments in a month is not always the
person who gets the most page views per month, I instituted the Top Chatter Award.
This is the award for the person who receives the most comments. To win, a guest
must have five or more comments (not counting the guest author’s). There can be
up to three winners.
This month’s winner’s are:
1 Vicki Batman
(Cancer Awareness)
2 Kayelle Allen (MFRW Founding Day)
3 Kayelle Allen (Cancer Awareness)

Dee Owens from Personalized
Marketing Inc is helping Romance Lives Forever Blog celebrate Cancer
Awareness Week 2016. Dee handles the websites for Kayelle Allen, The Author’sSecret, Marketing for Romance Writers, and several others. Her new design for the
new Romance Lives Forever Blog will encore in
2017.

Hello Everyone,
My name is Dee Owens, single mother, grandmother, cancer survivor and
supporter
for Cancer Awareness. I have had several family members, friends,
coworkers face different types of cancer. I myself have had my own dealings
with breast cancer. Cancer does not care what color we are, where we grew up,
how rich or poor we are. No one deserves to have to deal with cancer and no one
ever asks for it. Over the decades we have become more aware of what cancer is,
where it comes from and ways to detect it. Many do not realize that Cancer is
GENETIC, this means that if someone in your family has had it your chances of
getting it have increased. If we think about it, it makes sense that it can be
passed genetically, allergies, eye color, hair color, body types, diabetes are
all genetically passed from one generation to the next.
Cancer does not just affect the person who has it but also those that
take care of them. Fighting cancer is more than going and getting treatments,
eating differently, or trying to live heathier, it is also about the emotional
and financial drain it can have on you and your loved ones. Cancer treatments
are often covered by medical insurance but not always and never 100% cost. When
you think about how much it cost to just drive to the store, then imagine
having to drive that 2-3 times a week, every week for an extended period of
time. Or think about the additional equipment that is added to homes or the
missed ballgame because of treatment or just feeling bad. These are all tolls
that hit a family hard. That’s why I decided to help support those fighting
cancer and their loved ones by donating my time, finances, effort and skills.
My company provides free domain name, hosting and maintenance for an online
Cancer Awareness Community, http://Keep-HOPE-Alive.com
We also do yearly donations to local charities or organizations that
help others. Plus, we take time to show support of others by simply letting
people know they aren’t alone. Which in our opinion is probably one of the
single most important things we can do in the Fight Against Cancer.
I am also the Owner/CEO/Founder of Personalized Marketing Inc, also
known as Personalized Marketing and Promotions. Being a single mother and
needing a way to support my family but also be a stay-at-home mother, meant I
needed a change. I began my journey in 2005 when I published my first novel,
got a basic website and wanted to learn more. Personalized Marketing Inc opened
in August of 2008 when a friend needing videos wondered why I didn’t offer them
as a service. We have the same Mission Statement today as when we opened, “Personalized
Services tailored to you”. We continually strive for 110% effort to bring
you the best services we can provide.
Personalized Marketing Inc now offers all your online web presence
needs under one company. We offer Domain Names, Hosting, Emails, Network,
Social Site Marketing, Search Engine Optimization, SSL, Artwork, Website
Development and Ghostwriting. At Personalized Marketing Inc the first thing we
do is get to know you, we want to understand the efforts you have put in and
what areas you want help with. There have been times that we also suggest
additional items but never just “bloat” your services. If you would
like to get to know more about Personalized Marketing Inc or myself, please
