My father would’ve been 57 today. He passed away in Dec of 2011 almost one month after he turned 56. Cancer sucks. Cancer sucks so hard. Losing him at such a young age was horrible. As most of you know, it changed my life. I chose to make changes for (hopefully) the better.
I want other people to have more birthdays so PLEASE donate to my Movember campaign.
If you read this, I’m asking you to donate $5-$10 so that other little girls out there can watch their daddies grow old and have more birthdays. Let’s rise above the stereotypes. Men get sick too. Get a checkup. Change the face of Men’s Health!
Please help me get to at least $60 today in celebration of my dad’s birthday.
A few of you guys may not know why I’m participating in #Movember. My dad is currently passing away from what started out as thyroid cancer and spread to multiple brain tumors. He didn’t know anything was wrong until a few years ago. He wasn’t the type to go to the doctor a lot so they weren’t able to catch it “early” like doctors like to do for cancer. Fast forward past multiple surgeries and me almost losing him last year to now- He is in hospice care and we’ve reached the end. There is only one way to leave hospice care…..
I know that each day people pass away but this is my Daddy. The BEST man in my life. He raised me to be the wonderful and strong person that I am and he taught me to stand up for myself. So I’m taking a stand for Men’s Health.
There are also too many men who are just too stubborn to go to the doctor. Stop it. It’s not “uncool” to go get a checkup. Follow the recommended doctor appointments. Someone out there depends on you even if you don’t realize it. Continue to be around for their sake.
If you read this, I’m asking you to donate $1 in the name of my Daddy – John Twine so that other girls out there can watch their daddies grow old. Let’s rise above the stereotypes. Get a checkup. Change the face of Men’s Health

So as I said before, there isn’t much to do around the town that I live in. I mean, there is STUFF to do but not much for a homebody like me. I’m doing horrible at going to the gym. If it’s cold outside, I do not like to be out. If I want to go to something, I usually don’t want to go alone because people around here are freaking scary. There are hardly any bars or clubs to hang out that are close by. We don’t like to drink and drive so we would have to pay for a taxi there and back as well as pay for drinks for the night. I have no clue what we are doing this weekend. I hope we are killing some zombies in left 4 dead. Maybe we should go to the casino. I’ve never been and it would be something to do. Plus they have some drink specials.
So I’ve ordered most of my Christmas presents. This year I decided if I’m going to buy things for people, it should help other people in some way also. I ordered a bunch of things from TheBreastCancer site. For one, each click helps fund a mammogram for someone who can’t afford on. Secondly, part of the cost of the purchases go toward the mammograms also. Breast cancer is a big deal to me because my grandma and my aunt were both touched by it so I think more research is needed in this area for sure.
I got accepted to be a reviewer of books yay! Here’s a link to the book I’m going to be reading http://www.thomasnelson.com/consumer/product_detail.asp?sku=0785227814 Looks pretty interesting!
Well that’s all I’ve got for now! later
