90 Bloggers, 90 Words To Support Breakthrough Breast Cancer

Did you know that around 1000 women die from breast cancer every month?  One in eight women will develop breast cancer at some time in their lifetime. It is important to note that men also get breast cancer.  The good news is that more people are surviving breast cancer due to greater awareness, improved treatments and better screening.

So tells us Kate on Thin Ice who is looking for 90 generous bloggers to write about an important woman in their life - "any woman that matters to you – a grandmother, a mum, a daughter, a friend, a blogger, a boss, whoever you wish" - in 90 words and to join in her blog hop to help support Breakthrough Breast Cancer .

Well, here's our entry :

 Angel, little sister who wasn't meant to be, you may have never breathed the same air as us but you touched us so much. You taught us life is precious, to live every second like it could be the last. You reminded us to cherish our loved ones and our time together. You reminded me a mother's instincts are rarely wrong, even when professionals think they know better. You're still with us, sharing special moments from above and lighting up the girls' eyes as they look up and say, "oooh, it's Angel's star" !
