Chat with a Caregiver

Well, it's a new week already, loves. Zach's leave is over and I may or may not be feeling a little blue that I don't get to have him all to myself every day anymore. #sadday 

On the bright side though, I have a ton of really cool things happening this week, both on the blog and in RL, starting with today's post from my gal Amanda. You've met this lovely lady already here on the blog but she's back today to share something really important with y'all. 
Take it away, my friend!

Hi again! I'm so happy Elizabeth is allowing me to take over her blog once again. Last time I was here I wrote about being happy while your soldier is away, but today I'm here to ask for your help.

You may not know this about me; but I am a cancer survivor! At the age of 19 I was diagnosed with stage 3b metastatic melanoma and recently celebrated my fifth 'cancerversary' ! 

It goes without saying that I am very fortunate to still be here. Doctors and medicine aside; I could not have done it without the support of my friends and family. 

Caregivers hold a very special place in my heart and I firmly believe they deserve more recognition and loveIt's hard to find the words to describe just how important the role of caregiver is to any patient/survivor's cancer treatment and overall well-being. They have such a huge responsibility and are truly a vital piece of the cancer "process." Their job is the toughest in my opinion and I think we should recognize that. These people really are saints!

I'd like to create a resource for caregivers to receive advice, encouragement and support from other caregivers. Soooo, I'm starting a new monthly series on Marry Mint

Will you help me spread the word about this series? 
You are welcome to share my images or create your own! Lets use #ChatWithACaregiver :)



I would LOVE to hear from anyone who is willing to contribute! All I need is for them to shoot me an email ( MarryMintAmanda@gmail.com ) and we will get started!

Of course, it is not a requirement to have a blog and they can be in any stage of their cancer caregiving journey; patient diagnosed a month ago or decades removed. 

The first post in this series can be found here!

Please give me a shout if you have any questions at all!

Thank you from the bottom of my heart for helping me out with this! 

Oh, one more thing! If you yourself are a cancer survivor or caregiver I'd love to "meet" you, series or not! I love making new friends :)
