If there was a cure that can just make it disappear….
I wanted to take some time away from my baking, to write about this topic..I did two orders that involved making cookies for this cause. The first one was an order that my friend Karen had asked me to specially make for her..she had just found out that an old friend of hers has Leukemia, and she wanted to give her something special, so this is what I did:
Karen had emailed me the logo, which is something that Bebe and her close friends have gotten tattooed on. So I tried to make it as close as possible :). I have met Bebe before, she used to work with my sister Maite a long time ago, she actually even dated my brother at some point. I never really got to know her that much, since back then I was all about Johnny…I believe she is a couple of years younger than me….she is doing her treatments now…she is fighting it 🙂
I really hope she stays strong and positive…that she keeps smiling 🙂
I also did these pink ribbons for my friend Dolores, she keeps me busy baking every week for her lol :
Dolores Has family members tha have breast cancer, and some that have passed away from it as well.
I don’t want to make my sister cry when she reads this blog, it is not my intention… My sister has always been like a mother to me..she has always loved kids, and I know she would be a great mother. Unfortunately she wont be able to have any of her own due to her condition…I am not going to get into detail about it..it’s one of those things that I rather just block off and forget about….and I know she rather too. The reason I bring this up is because you never know what life has in store for you…she is a very strong woman, and this is the hardest thing that I think she has had to face, that she is still facing every day…She is doing good now, although she needs to have constant check ups…I am happy that I have my monster’s for her to be with, but I know it may sometimes be hard for her. Maite, you can have them, both of them lol. I love you!
I have another very close person, whom I love very much…that has Lymphoma, and if you saw him you wouldn’t even know he had it. He has always been a very healthy person, full of energy,….and boom….it just happened. He is doing his treatments now, and he is doing very good, although chemo can be tough sometimes, but he is a strong cookie :). I won’t say who it is, since not many people know about what he is going through. I just want him to know, if he happens to read this, that I love you very much!
Life is full of surprises, good and bad. It makes me think of how easy we have it sometimes, and yet we still complain. While there are people struggling everyday, fighting to survive.
Love to all!
