Friday Five --- Breast Cancer Awareness

Did you know October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month?
My mother in law {Ellie} who is no longer with us today, beat breast cancer about 8 years ago. Roughly five years later she lost the fight when she suffered leukemia a rare blood disorder a small percentage of patients get from a side effect of the chemo therapy she recieved while battling breast cancer.
She has been in heaven three years this month. 
October is a hard month for our family because
her birthday, death, and her favorite holiday {Halloween} falls in the month of October. 
Its also tough that our 3.5 year old will never know his Grandma Ellie.
{He was 7 months when she left us}
She will always have a special place in our hearts. 
She was brave and courageous, a great wife, mother, sister, grandma, and friend. 
 We miss her everyday. She will never be forgotten. 
How has breast cancer affected your life? 
Spread Awareness, & LETS. FIND. A. CURE. TOGETHER!
On a sweeter note...Here are 5 pink things Ellie would have loved!!
