What do you do with negative energy that you feel with personal loss?
I have always turned it around with a focus on CHARITY for others...It is a purely selfish way for me to help me feel better! And it has always worked.
REFOCUS off my own wallowing misery and blast the negativity with POSITIVE energy. Unfortunately there is no lack of need for charity in our world.
One of the threads that runs through my life is Cancer and Cancer Treatment.
My family has had its share just as many other families have. It is a horrible common denominator. One I wish we never shared.
My sister, father-in-law, nephew, cousins, aunts, uncles and dearest friends have been down that road. Almost all have been treated in Boston, Ma. We have been fortunate to be so close to world class care.
Massachusetts has the DANA FARBER CANCER INSTITUTE that treats people from around the world. http://www.dana-farber.org/
My own cousin Pat has been the most current patient in the family who is in a treatment plan at DF that is keeping brain cancer at bay. We are thankful for what they have been doing for her for the last 5 years. It is a miracle of healthcare.
And then there are the Children....
The JIMMY FUND is another part of the cancer care of Dana Farber's outreach.
You can read about them here: http://kids.pmc.org/
Children and Cancer...it's just WRONG.
We need to keep beating the hell out of those cancers with support of funding for treatment and the good work they are doing to keep kids surviving and thriving.
I am supporting the August effort of the PAN MASS CHALLENGE.
If you would like to make a donation to help Children through the Jimmy Fund you can read more here.

I will be posting this on TWITTER and FACEBOOK and if you feel like sharing it with others PLEASE DO! Helping comes in many ways and sometimes it is just to get the word out...you never know on what fertile ground those seeds will fall!
As always...thank you for your support and friendship through the years!
