Fundraising for Brain Tumors#GivingTuesday

#GivingTuesday – A special day nationwide to help raise money for many 501(c)3 Nonprofit Organizations.  I selected one, Oligo Nation, that has a great reason to research Oligo brain tumors (the one in my head) – and the foundation was started after two sons had it! They have already donated a lot of money to research on combating the Oligo tumors.  Please click here to donate!  (The Gates Foundation will donate $2m in matching donations through Facebook this year!)

 

 

It’s Foof!

This article below has inspired me! Mike Arhangelsky and I always laugh and smile because of our cat.

And then say, yeah, he should have his own site. Well, finally, that site is under way, but Facebook page is already started! We’re going for it, so check is out and please like Foof: http://www.facebook.com/foofthecat

The inspiration was a Mashable posting: “NPR accidentally posts about a cat on its Facebook, now people want more of the cat”

 

PS (10/10/17 addition): Foof the Cat also has a WEBSITE being built!

I want to thank everyone who has sent their support and great feelings to me! So many things have meant so very much to me: a comment, a card, a plant, a posting, a bouquet, a coffee mug, edible arrangement, a puzzle, magazines, a coloring book, and so many awesome items!

Brain Painting

Update: Been feeling better overall now!  Still taking a prescription that makes me tired, but it means that it helps the healing in my head.  Some days feel great, but some days I still have points in pain as they heal.  I am not allowed to drive due to the prescription, so a lot of home activity!  I can’t stop saying thank you to everyone for the wonderful messages you send!! PS – the photo above is from a great site that is perfect & funny to understand what this recovery time is all about!! Check out a woman’s advice here, “20 Things You Can Expect After Brain Surgery”.

[PPS – I told you that it is an oligodendroglioma that was/small bit left in my head.  I would say not to “google” the word, since lots of info comes up and the scary seems to be first.  Please let me know if you have any questions.]
