We Furrydance cats, and Teri join MILO AND ALFIE AND JAN in focusing awareness of those affected by cancer, by going Yellow for LIVESTRONG Day 2010. We didn't know we had any yellow outfits, but we do and to show our support, we dressed up!
LIVESTRONG Day helps raise awareness of cancer, those who are fighting the good fight and those who are survivors...both human and animal! While our Teri has not lost a family member to cancer, she has lost two kitties to cancer.
Her very first kitty, Cascais, had intestinal cancer, as did one of her Cornish Rex, Skiddy. They both lived many months after their diagnosis, and Teri knows each extra day with them was a gift.
And brave Trevor, who lived in a home with heavy smokers for most of his life, came back home to Teri when he was an old cat and not too long after that, he was diagnosed with nasal cancer, most likely due to inhaling all that cigarette smoke for so long. To think that his cancer might have been prevented makes Teri sad to have lost him to it.
We are proud to GO YELLOW for LIVESTRONG Day and spread the awareness with the message...
We believe in the Power of the Purr!
