Sisterhood of the World Bloggers Award!


I was very excited yesterday when I found I had been given an award for the… Sisterhood of World Bloggers… worldwide there are thousands of blogs, so it is always a great honour when someone finds my blog worthy of an award. This award was given to me by Jazzybeatchick Writes … this is a great blog which I really enjoy reading for her content, music and pictures..

With these awards there are always rules to excepting and passing the award to others… so here goes!!This is a link to Jazzybeatchicks nomination post…

Well as always when there are rules I am inclined to bend or break them!!! I find it impossible to pick which 10 or 12 blogs I should choose, as all the blogs I follow I enjoy, you can see these listed at the end of my posts. How ever I have decided to give this to just one post that has a special place in my heart at this time…

Saying NOPE to Breast Cancer

In this blog Mogatos says….  I never really worried or thought much about cancer … until my sister was diagnosed with breast cancer at the age of 28.  At the time, I was 21 years old, naive, in college, worried about what plans I had for the weekend, and didn’t really grasp what that meant.  More than ten years later, my sister is gone, my mom is gone (ovarian cancer), and I just had a prophylactic bilateral mastectomy and started the breast reconstruction process on January 22, 2013. I said NOPE to breast cancer. 

I am pleased to pass this award to Mogatos so you can read this courageous women’s story…

  1. You deserve every award you get (and many more), Helen! You are an inspiration and your blog is an amazing resource for anyone facing lymphoedema. I have so much love and respect for you and am honored to receive this award. ❤ ❤ ❤ Thank you!

  2. Hi Helen, you have no idea how happy I was to find your blog. It’s been a source of great information, inspiration, and a bright light when the mind goes dark. A big congrats on the award. Well deserved!

    • Thank you.. I started it as there seemed to be no information on surgeries etc when I looked from a patients point of view … And from there it grew to include things that may help others that I had learnt over the 12 years of having LE… Plus we give support to each other 😃😃😃
