Re: Let's help CoolBreeze !

Oh my gosh! Thank you ladies! Your support means the world to me.

I wish I was amazing. I struggle like everybody else. I am so sad I am going to leave my children but all I can do is appreciate the beauty of the time I have. I think a lot of us come to that knowledge at the end but I am just lucky enough to be able to write about it. *hugs* to all of you. Every person who has voted for me, who has commented on my blog or facebook page, emailed me, or posted support in a forum like this keeps me going and my spirits high. Thank YOU.

Re: Let's help CoolBreeze !

I see that whatz has beat me to the most important task of my day.

Ann is running a little behind right now, so she needs everyone's votes. She can win this, and we can help.

Even my totally apathetic husband has gotten in on it--he has prevailed upon all his friends and a FB group to which he belongs to get the vote out.

Healthlines asks you to log in with Facebook, but I have it on good authority that it doesn't use your information for any other purpose (and you can delete the app after the contest is over).

Please vote.

Rhonda

Re: Let's help CoolBreeze !

Bumping again. Lead down to 30 vote. Come on peeps. We can do this! (Rhondalea, looks like my timezone may be earlier than yours :-), can't bump this enough though)

Re: Let's help CoolBreeze !

She has support over at breastcancer.org in their Stage IV support forum. I got really brave and made a post over there (my first ever) in the HER2 forum.

As of this post, Ann is up 35 points. I can't believe we have another day and a half of this to go.

I can't stand the suspense. I wish we could round up a flood of votes to bump her numbers so high that no one could catch up.

P.S. to whatz: What it really looks like is that despite being in an earlier time zone, you're up a whole lot earlier than I am. No one will ever call you lazy.
