A Year

I miss my Mom every day, but this Monday will mark the one year anniversary of her passing.  I'm not sure how it has been a year already. It seems like just yesterday we were talking every day and driving to and from chemo once a week.  It seems like yesterday that she was holding my children and watching them grow. Now it is a year later and she hasn't been here to see them get bigger or to give me a hug. I don't understand how this happened, but I know that she wanted there to be more awareness about this disease.

This blog was started because of my Mom.  I started it because she said there was no info out there and women just weren't aware of the symptoms.  This has to change and that is why I am here today. I started out strong with this blog and stopped working on it when I got sick again.

But, now I am BACK...I am going to be devoting most of my time to building this blog and raising awareness for this horrible, horrible disease. It all starts with one person talking to another person, and then another, and so on.  It also comes down to one person reading my blog and then telling another person, and then another, and so on.

Please feel free to follow my blog.  Feel free to add comments and make this an interactive experience. I will be adding links to articles, research and anything I can find about Ovarian Cancer.  You can also follow tealforlife on  I would also like you to buy a shirt so that we can get more people talking and learning about Ovarian Cancer.
