Thanks for your help, BCA 2009

Ladies, just wanted to quickly say thanks for your help making October 2009 a good month in the fight against breast cancer. With your help, our combined donation to Susan G. Komen for the Cure was $500 this year ($250 more than last year).

      Hi Jenna,

      It’s French… if you say it correctly it’s “Mont-ree-shard,” but most people pronounce it “Monty-richard.”

      BTW, congrats on totally rocking your LSAT!! Hello, awesomeness. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Thank you Karen and congrats! Appreciate all the laughs and makeup tips always, but also for reminding us to open our wallets (and our hearts!) for an important cause.

    Anastasia.

    You have a pretty last name. Yay for more breast cancer research.

    November is National Epilepsy Awareness Month. I think I’m going to go out and get lavender ribbon which is the color for Epilepsy.

    By the way, Zena says, “hello!” She’s doing what she does best–napping.

      Hi Kate & Zena,

      Thanks for letting me know about National Epilepsy Awareness Month. I don’t know too much about it, other than what I’ve seen on TV. I should take note to do some reading on it this week!

    Karen,

    There are a few sites you can check out for Epilepsy. Some sites that I ask people to look at (considering I have Epilepsy) are the Epilepsy Foundation, Out of the Shadows (basic info) and the National Institute for Neurological Disorders and Stroke. Those can give you a good idea and provide the latest research being done (what little IS being done).

    What you see on TV really is really overrated for Epilepsy. Not all of us fall backwards everytime we have seizures. Some of us are more prone to falling forward (they have helmets designed for this purpose) and there are partial and complex seizures and even intestinal Epilepsy. There are so many seizures, yet TV shows and films favor grand mal seizures (falling down and thrashing) over these other seizures. I had a variety of seizure types when my Epilepsy was active.

    One of my favorite relatively new developments is 4 Paws for Abilities–a company that trains dogs for disabled persons and Epileptics. The dogs are trained to respond to seizures, provide comfort and assist a person so they can live normal, productive lives. They take what is instinctual in dogs and hone that ability which is great. I qualify for one but don’t really need one! Kids and adults who have worse cases deserve these dogs; I’ll stick with Zena. ๐Ÿ™‚
