I know nothing about what it feels like to be a Stage IV cancer patient.
I know nothing about what it takes to live knowing that the treatments that you are enduring are there to just maintain your disease, not cure it.
But I have friends who know exactly what it feels like because they are there and my heart breaks for them. They are constantly on my mind and in my prayers and I am always looking for organizations and foundations that are geared to helping them. They cannot be forgotten. They need us and we need them.
We need them to remind us that life is a precious gift. Don't waste it. Don't spend it arguing on Facebook about something that someone said that you happen to not believe or agree with. Don't waste it yelling at that slow driver (or the drivers who don't use their blinkers. :/) Don't ignore the ones who mean the most to you because you just have to finish one more episode of the show that you are binge watching on Netflix.
Life is way too short, my friends. Way too short and there are more important things in this life than the negativity that fills our newsfeed every day.
The organization I want to highlight today is one that fills my heart with joy. I had not heard about it until my friend, Tia, told me that she was going to go on a retreat through the "Little Pink Houses of Hope." I was so excited for her and her cute family and I know that they had an amazing week together. Watch the following video to learn a little more about the foundation and what they do for Stage IV Breast Cancer patients and their families.
