Allison Day

This heart is for my little brother.

This heart is for my dad.

This heart is for all of my friends and family who are or have ever had to suffer through cancer.

I wish I could take all the hurt away.

(These hearts are also for Barbara Harris’ event, LiveSTRONG with a Taste of Yellow 2010 – Heart Series.)

    Here’s a link that has a good set of tips on dieting for someone with cancer:

    My mom had cancer on her throat when I was about 10 years old. A lot of rice porridge, being around people you love, and knowing that you’ll beat the disease goes a long way to make the fight easier.
