We all wake up every morning, ready to face the day. Some of us exercise prior to work, some of us sleep in to the very last second, but all of us get ready for the day that lies ahead. What some of us may not be ready for is one moment that will change us forever.
Susan the blogger behind The Great Balancing Act unfortunately has had to face one of these moments when over a month ago a pain in her neck sent her to the doctor. After a few hours and a few CT scans later Susan would learn she had Lymphoma, in other words cancer. This young, fit blogger is now facing the fight of her life, in one instant her world changed completely.
Susan spent a month in the hospital and was finally released last week after her first round of chemotherapy. She now not only faces the challenge of fighting cancer but also the challenge of how to pay for her $5000 monthly out-of-pocket medical bills. An added stress no one wants to think about when they are fighting for their life.
Janetha of Meals and Moves has taken the time to coordinate an auction of some fantastic items with all the proceeds going to Susan. You can visit the auction page here. If you don’t want to bid on an item but want to contribute to Susan you can also donate cash via Paypal.
There will also be a special Twitter chat today at 1pm ET featuring Susan herself, thanks to Katy Widrick. The hashtag for the chat will be #TGFA. If you are available stop by and show your support for Susan, she has got a rough road ahead and she can use all the support she can get.
Life is unpredictable. We wake up every day not knowing what to expect, hoping for the best. Unfortunately you never know what life will bring, so what is most important is that you live each day to the fullest. What matters most is the people in your life that will love and support you not only through the happy times but the tough times too.
Take this moment to appreciate what you have because life can change in an instant.
Stop by Susan’s blog The Great Balancing Act to read about her story, about the moment that changed her life. Good luck Susan, you will be in my thoughts and prayers.
