My many adventures

Hi Folks, sorry I deleted my paragraph where I tell you all about all the places I've been to.
I'm blessed since surviving breast cancer, to travel around the world to some of the many places I've always wanted to go. There are lots more places I want to visit.
I've been to Scotland, England, Victoria BC, an Alaskan cruise, a fab Mediterranean cruise which took us to Barcelona, the Vatican & Rome, the island of Crete, Izmir & SulcukEphesus Turkey, Egypt and Malta. I have been to Las Vegas, Hollywood LA, Cabo San Lucas, Orlando, Daytona Beach, Tampa, a Disney Cruise to Bahamas and Disney's Castaway Cay island, all over Canada and Hawaii and Pearl Harbour. We can add Cozumel, Costa Maya, Mexico, Belize City and Honduras. What a fabulous way to see the world!
Take the time to do the things you want to do because life is too short and if you wait until you can afford it, you'll likely never go. So get your plans ready and pick a place and start booking your trip. It is so worth it.
Thanks for dropping by. I have lots of posts to put up so stay tuned...
Debbie


BLOG POST OF THE MONTH: Sept 20, 2016

Hi Folks! I have been away from posting because my 40 year old daughter finally got married Aug 27th 2016. It was tiring but the wedding was wonderful and very happy in the end. I sent them on a beautiful honeymoon to Calabogie Lodge in Ontario. The resort was all wood interior with two bedrooms and the master suite with a bed so big. Apparently when the drove back home to Halifax, they started arguing and it lasted all the way over four provinces. Now she feels the argument wasn't so bad. Glad they enjoyed their first vacation ever! His brother loaned them his BMW which drove like a dream.

I still have a great deal of travel posts to put up. I want our vacations and travel to be shared with you all. I'm not sure of what our travel plans will be for 2017, but for 2016, I rested all the time. Retirement is so awesome!! I was able to take pictures of the summer's Totally Eclipse of the Moom, which I'll share with you here on a post. It was incredible for sure.

I had my annual cancer check up and everything was great! It makes me so happy unfortunately, my doctor had to retire due to illness and I am trying to get a family doctor. It is horrible when you don't have someone who looks after you and knows you.

We had a fabulous summer with little rain, although the farmers and rural residents were not too happy. Some people had to pay for water since their wells went dry. This rainless weather is not something we experience so it was a little frightening.

I've been busy trying to find my ancesters with the Foran/Forhan name. Apparently two brothers came over from Dublin, one was name Edward who had a son named Edward born in Prince Edward Island and he had a son named William who had my father. I love doing ancestry but it is very frustrating when you can get no further without the "parents" names.

Well, be on the look out for my various posts. I also have a few products I want to write about as well.
Thanks friends,

Debbie

International Network for Cancer Research & Treatment

Hi! My name is Julie and I am working as a Liaison Officer for the International Network for Cancer Research and Treatment (INCTR), an NGO focusing on cancer control in developing countries. You will find more information on INCTR activities at http://www.inctr.org.

As you may know, many cancer patients in low and middle income countries present at a far advanced stage, when it’s often too late to save their lives. Poverty, gender inequality, lack of education and health services are just a few reasons why very few women are screened in resource-limited nations. In Nepal, this problem is compounded by geographical isolation in rural areas.

To reach out to rural communities in the Kathmandu valley, INCTR Nepalese Branch organizes screening camps where women are screened for cervical and breast cancer. Results and necessary medications are provided on the spot, and patients with positive screening results are referred for follow-up. Self-examination workshops and cancer education sessions are also provided to local communities.

Our Nepalese colleagues told us that many women were happy to find that both the screening and medication were free of cost, as they would not have been able to afford them otherwise.

“To help us, please make a donation at http://www.globalgiving.org/projects/screen-nepali-women-for-cervical-and-breast-cancer A lot can be achieved with your help: as little as $10 will provide cervical and breast cancer screening for one Nepali woman. We have received enough donations to screen about 660 women so far and we are now aiming to screen 1000 women for important cancers in the Kathmandu valley in 2011!

We also need your help spreading the word. Just like Debbie, please share this opportunity with your colleagues, friends and family by forwarding them this message, sharing the above link on your blogs or social networks, using the tell-a-friend feature on the project page to email your network, or just bring us up in conversation.

Thank you very much on behalf of the entire project team,

Julie
