I'm thinking of using the cards closer to home this year - my sister-in-law, a breast cancer survivor, became a crusader - she gave up her job and started Charis Integrated Cancer Care in Cookstown, Northern Ireland . They provide holistic health care and support to cancer sufferers and their families. It all began because my husbands family has been hit badly by this disease - he lost his mother and 7 aunts and uncles on her side of the family to it, and out of 6 children in his family, he and 3 other siblings have had cancer - thankfully, my DH is well now and so are his brother and two sisters, only one brother did not survive. They were asked to take part in a large research project because of the extremely high incidence in their family, and my two boys will have to be very alert regarding this throughout their lives.
