As we grow up and become parents, friends, etc., we know life doesn't last forever.  We don't know when it will happen, but it "happens to all of us."  Well, with a Lung Cancer diagnosis, we realistically open our eyes and ears and know that end may come much quicker than we thought.  That's when we fight with a flame we never knew we had inside of us.

This fight is also about awareness.  How many of us knew what we know now when we were diagnosed?  Now is the time to spread awareness.  This fight, our treatment, forces us to hold close what is important, love what is dear, and do what is love.  This has forced me to think about my own mortality.  

If God wants me before I can become an old lady with a cane, slippers and my robe, then I want to do as much as I can to help others before my time is up.  Our family has participated and created many community projects.

Now, while I am feeling well, I have decided what I would like to do as another way Spread Lung Cancer awareness is donate my wedding dress in the name of Lung Cancer Awareness.  I have found an organization that takes "cleaned" wedding  dresses and with a team of seamstresses across the country, they create gowns to be worn by stillborn babies and preemie babies who crossed that bridge with the others.  Parents should never have to experience the loss of a child, but in this world, we know it happens too often.  "Angel Gowns" have a team of volunteers who meet monthly and use wedding gowns to create gowns for the babies to be buried in.  I, as a mother, cannot imagine being told to go home and pick something out.

PLEASE consider joining me in making one thing in these parents lives, a bit more bearable. 

If you would like to participate, please contact me (contact form is on right side of my blog).  Below are the details:

  • dress must have been cleaned
  • dress is mailed at your expense
  • PLEASE consider adding a roll 3/8 or 5/8 white satin ribbon to help make the angel
  • if there is a portion of the dress you'd like to keep, please use scissors and cut it off before mailing the dress
  • Add a note with your name, date of your wedding and mention your donation is help spread lung cancer awareness
This is NOT a 501(c)3, so your donation will not be tax deductible.

I hope to hear from many of you.  God Bless and Have a Wonderful Thanksgiving.

Below is a picture of my wedding gown that I will be mailing.  The second picture is a sample of the Angel Gowns that are made from our dresses.

p.s.  they accept flower girl white dresses as well
