5 Year Anniversary Giveaway!

I got out of my funk when I realized that TODAY is my 5-year Breast-Cancer-Free Anniversary!! WooHoo! I choose to celebrate with all my blogging buddies by having a Giveaway! I have been purging charts from my stash, and will just say that the winner will receive all kinds of goodies, to include: LHN (5), Lizzie Kate (1), Homespun Elegance (1), The Workbasket (3), 4 old magazines that have all kinds of great charts in them, and who knows what else I may include before this is over?? I am pretty HAPPY right now, despite the troubles I have in other body parts!

In order to enter, you must be a follower and have an active blog! That's it!!

***Edited to add--you have to comment here too!!***

***Also edited to add that I will be doing the drawing on the 14th!!***

So, the moral of MY story is: EARLY DETECTION!! Get those Mammograms! KEEP getting them! They only hurt a few minutes! A MUCH better alternative to chemo, surgery, and all that comes with cancer! (getting off my soap box...)

Hugs, Maggee

Congratulations on such a great anniversary! I say get on your soap box as often and as long as you want, its a message women need to hear. With my family history, I've been trying to get a mammogram for the last 4 years, but I keep getting told no, not until I'm 40. They don't seem to care about the family history.

Peggy Lee said...

Congratulations on 5 years cancer free! I received a notice in the mail telling me my mammogram was past due. With all the excitement over just arriving home and the holidays I have forgotten to schedule it. Thank you for the reminder!

I have been thinking about doing a giveaway like this too.

Please include me in on this one.
Thank you SO MUCH!!

I'm so thrilled to hear that you've been cancer free for five years, Maggee--happy dancing right along with you :) Early detection is so important and it is so helpful to have cancer survivors such as yourself pushing that message...

Thanks so much for your great-sounding giveaway--I would love to enter :)

Nancy M said...

I have been following you on my google reader, but I guess I made it "official" today by following publicly! Congrats for your 5 years cancer free. What better way to celebrate???? Awesome giveaway!

stitcheranon said...

I was feeling a bit low as I have my second chemo this week and just popped on to see who had entered my giveaway..I was going through adding those who had entered to my blog following list when I came to yours and this post. My goodness it made me smile...thank you for celebrating this cus those of us going through it need to hear from those who beat it to keep us strong and optimistic. Congratulations on your beating breast cancer with all my heart. And yes.....early detection makes all the difference!!!!!!! I know from experience...squashed boobies are just a minor inconvenience...the early you find it, the less the treatment and look at you: proof of the pie is in the eating xxxxx

Chris said...

Congratulations on 5 years!!!

Sarah said...
