Acts of kindness/Cancer Awareness

I came across a blog the other day that is just amazing. http://www.cards-of-hope.com
They deliver cards at random to cancer patients. Children, adults, anyone suffering with this dreadful disease. What a great and uplifting idea. If more of us spent a little of our time devoting random acts of kindness to strangers just think how kind and loving our world could be. This kindness has inspired me to try to make sure I am a kinder, more generous person in my day-to-day life. Hopefully as you read this, the work they do will inspire you as well. Please check out the blog and if you know someone who could use a card, add their name to the list!

Ovarian cancer has affected my family. This horrible fast growing cancer takes the lives of so many women that I am going to include common symptoms and a link so if any one need more information they can easily find it.
Please encourage anyone you know with these symptoms that last more than a couple of weeks to see their doctor.

Symptoms of Ovarian Cancer
Ovarian cancer is difficult to detect, especially, in the early stages.

Bloating
Pelvic or abdominal pain
Trouble eating or feeling full quickly
Feeling the need to urinate urgently or often

Other symptoms of ovarian cancer can include:
Fatigue
Upset stomach or heartburn
Back pain
Pain during sex
Constipation or menstrual changes
