As most of you will know yesterday was Ovarian Cancer Day and it was wonderful to see so many people raising awareness for this horrible women’s cancer, please keep sharing as your share could save lives! Everywhere around us cancer is impacting lives, relationships, marriages and friendships and everyone deals with this in a different way, a message that becomes all too clear in Miss You Already:

In Miss You Already childhood friends Jess (Drew Barrymore) and Milly (Toni Collette) are busy living London life when Milly’s breast cancer diagnosis turns their world upside down. After the initial shock has faded Milly is determined to win the battle and Jess is at her side through it all, she even puts her own fertility plans on hold to support her best friend in this tough fight.

Miss You Already

From chemo and hospital stays to losing hair and picking wigs, Jess is there to help Milly and her family as much as she can. Cancer not only invades Milly’s body, it invades her marriage to Kit and her friendship with Jess too and slowly things start falling apart. When Milly eventually receives the devastating news that there is no more hope she wants to repair the broken relationships before it is too late.

Word of warning: Please do not watch this movie without a box of tissues nearby, you will need it!

Miss You Already is now available on DVD (RRP $34.95) and Blu-ray (RRP $39.95) at all good retail stores across Australia.

Auction for Micah

Some days the twins are really naughty, like all 3-year olds can be naughty, some days the baby cries a lot and hangs on my leg, expecting to be held all the time. Some nights the twins call me into their rooms again and again, for no good reason and I wish they would stop asking for me and just go to sleep. I know that most mums will recognise this and it is okay to feel that way sometimes, but next time your kids behave less than ideal think about this beautiful boy called Micah.

Micah is 3 years old and lives in Adelaide, he has been diagnosed with a rare and aggressive form of cancer and his earthly future is unknown. As I have two 3-year olds myself his story has really touched me and made me realise once again how incredibly blessed I am with healthy children, even if they are naughty sometimes. Micah requires high-level chemo therapy which means a compromised immune system and Micah’s family needs a good quality vacuum cleaner to help maintain a healthy, bug-free environment.

The amazing people at Spartan Electrical have offered to provide a top-of-the-line Dyson at cost price and to raise these costs ($700) the lovely Rachel from Owl Baby has organised Auction for Micah. Lots of generous companies have donated fantastic prizes to Auction for Micah, all you need to do is be generous too whilst bidding. You could buy some fantastic products (and even services) and all the money raised will go directly to a brand new vauum cleaner for Micah’s family. Every little bit helps and there are many different products available for budgets big or small.

Auction for Micah runs on Facebook until Wednesday October 12th 2011. At the moment the auction includes 90 items, you can check them all out here. Please be generous, trust you are making a difference to Micah and his family and please hug your little ones extra tight today.
