Bringing Small Comforts ~ CrazySexyCancer

"Life is a terminal condition, cancer patients are just more aware of it."

When women are faced with a medical challenge, a powerful weapon of choice should be knowledge. Kris Carr was deadly serious about her diagnoses of Stage 4 cancer in 2003. Given no option but experimental treatment for her rare and incurable type of cancer, the 31 year old actress and photographer sets out to explore any and all options. Even the crazy alternative ones. She refers to her cancer journey as an adventure story, a catalyst for a personal revolution. She is a warrior princess who wears cowboy boots. She wanted to kick cancer in the butt. And so far she has.

Kris Carr is crazy in a good kind of way. She is a CrazySexyCancerCowgirl (her term) and I think her knowledge and how she shares it is pretty powerful stuff. Millions do, you may have seen her on Oprah last year and remember her story. I am just reminding you so you can arm your friend with her own copy of this bestselling DVD and book to help her kick that stupid cancer as hard as she can. This can be your long distance gift, both books and DVD can be ordered directly from her site or on Amazon. Visit the CrazySexyCancer website and make sure you watch the 7 minute movie trailer of this DVD, it will give you goosebumps. It is sometimes funny, sometimes crazy, and her message that "healing is about living rather than fighting" is a really essential one for your friend right now. Just one more weapon.

  6. Sande,
    Again thank you..what a touching inspirational site she has, I have passed it on. I just made my almost daily fresh juice, and am glad I did!
    I made my call that I realize I have been afraid to make yesterday, and am so glad I did. Thank you for the kick in the butt, I will be calling often now that the fear is gone. I don't know how much longer I will be able to just pick up the phone.
    Again blessings to you for putting all of this info out there.

    ~xo always

  11. I haven't seen this before...but I will file it away in case it is needed in the future. Thanks!


  12. Thank you Sande, for talking about something that IS hard to hear about. I appreciate you bringing it to the forefront. My friend is going through something with her husband and I'll make sure I'm there to see her through it. Thanks for the inspiring and important posts.

  13. I've had so many thoughts whirling around my head since reading your Blog this a.m. Shortly after returning from Market in Atlanta, I was diagnosed with uterine cancer. Am now recuperating from my surgery getting ready for chemo and radiation. I am VERY blessed with a fabulous family and warm and loving friends. We've been through this 13 years ago when I was treated for aggressive breast cancer with high dose chemo and stem cell transplant. I am very fortunate that my husband is a surgeon, and my doctors are all friends. I've had no decisions to make myself-I just follow orders. I marvel at young women who don't have this type of backup and have to be in charge of all their own decisions. My prognosis is great, and I look forward anxiously to playing with all my gorgeous silk flowers and containers recently delivered from Market that are stacked up in my workroom. Sande, it is wonderful that you are writing these posts. Jeanne (sophie Dahy Designs)

  14. Sande, I have forwarded this to a friend recently hit with the C diagnosis - thank you for posting about this.


Your comments are such a lovely addition to my day. Thank you.
