Volley for the Cure


I had breast cancer 10 years ago so I am all about supporting fund-raisers that donate the proceeds to an orginization looking for a cure.  It is even better if it is something I can involve April, Jake and Sam in.  Volley for the Cure was started by Sycamore (where Sam attends) and Loveland High School and have raised over…wait for it…$1,000,000.  It now takes place all over Ohio.  Several weeks ago we attended the Sycamore game.Gym decorated…check!

Coach greeted by Jake…check!

Crazy, wild-eyed fans….check, check!

Several days later while April and I were walking Max the Wonder Dog she said to me, “Mom I checked for lumps.”  It took me a minute to realize that she was talking about a self-exam.  She had learned about it at her last visit to the doctor.  I told her how proud I was that she remembered and did the exam.  So ladies that read my blog, have you done a breast self-exam recently and taught your older daughter with Down syndrome how to do one?  Another life skill to check off my list.
