Live Strong


Today we are celebrating those who've fought the terrible disease of cancer and survived and remembering those who didn't win the battle.  I wanted to say so much more today because Cancer effects everyone, even us kitties and woofies, but Mom Paula and I are a little sad today because it brings back the fresh memories of losing Sweet Praline and Beignet to cancer.   Our hope is that more research will be done for cats and cancer in the future!




In the meantime, we also celebrate those who've fought the battle and won.  Mom Paula recently had a skin cancer removed and we are purring really hard that this is not a survivor of this disease.



 Live Strong, Mom Paula because I am here beside you to help you through any trials!



We miss Sweet Praline and my little brother, Beignet who both lost their battle with Cancer.  Sweet Praline was 15 1/2 years old and Beignet was only 11 weeks old.  May they be happy and healthy at the bridge.  We love you!



Sweet Praline
September 25, 1995 - April 25, 2011
Mast Cell Tumor in the Spleen




Beignet
June 2 - August 25, 2011
Vaccine Associated Sarcoma (VAS)

  26. Cancer is a horrid disease that has touched everyone's lives.
    Truffle, you and your Mom Paula have really experienced this firsthand in recent months.
    After losing Sweet Praline and Beignet to cancer, your Mom had her own fight.
    We look to the day there will be no more cancer in the world.
    And we are sending your Mom Paula lots of love, purrs and prayers in her fight.
    We know she caught it early and has beaten it.
    Love & Purrs,
