welcome 2012

Another year over, and a new one has begun…..so now what?

Our road trip for awareness!

Don’t let it be said there are never plans for the future, especially within the ranks of our Feel Teal Club members! It seems every time we think one event/project is complete, someone is already thinking of another…the brainstorming can be contagious, and so much fun!

The pace has seriously picked-up on our “awareness” campaigning, a weekly podcast production via the Feel Teal Talk show and the Feel Teal Club’s monthly magazine releases-the 2012 January edition just went out and is already receiving great feedback! Thank-you to all our readers!

We never want our followers to miss a beat, so here’s a couple of tips to keep you in the TEAL-LOOP!

Feel Teal Talk show has its own embeddable player….a simple code which you copy/paste onto a webpage or blog and giving you instant access to each episode! If you’d like an example of how they look, check-out our links here:

Beautiful journey

Episode 5 of the Feel Teal Talk show kicked-off with the theme, “You are beautiful” and this was definitely felt throughout the programme.

After a quick Event Update from “yours truly”, a rather funny recount of a Christmas story from  Shelly, we were  introduced to titan, Julie Aldridge. Julie’s personal experience with ovarian cancer came via her daughter, Sarah…at 28 years of age, Sarah had been diagnosed with stage 3 only months after the birth of her second child.

Julie writes: Sarah had gone in to have her gall bladder removed, and came out with this news. I can’t begin to tell you how crippling those words were, and how scary. Having to tell her…..was beyond words….it was the beginning of our journey.

A  journey which would bring Julie across my path and that of the Feel Teal Club! It began when Julie left a post on our Facebook page which was about finding more teal merchandise. Like so many others, she expressed her desire to see this made available to the public and I couldn’t have agreed more! And so we connected on a regular basis from that day forward, which also led to other (as Shelly describes) “teal-connections”.

Hearing her speak about Sarah’s experience on-air, I could hear the pain in her voice….a mother is the one who kisses the “hurt”, and makes it all better…how do you do that with cancer?She described her daughter as the “girly” type, the one who likes to look pretty, from head to toe and so this brought up another very important piece of the cancer puzzle….it isn’t just about the disease, but also about the treatments. Let’s face it, chemotherapy isn’t gentle…..it wants to attack and destroy the cancer cells by keeping the cells from further multiplying. Unfortunately, chemotherapy does not know the difference between the cancerous cells and the normal cells.

Chemotherapy drugs are powerful medications that attack rapidly growing cancer cells. Unfortunately, these drugs also attack other rapidly growing cells in your body — including those in your hair roots. Chemotherapy may cause hair loss all over your body — not just on your scalp. Sometimes your eyelash, eyebrow, armpit, pubic and other body hair also falls out. Some chemotherapy drugs are more likely than others to cause hair loss, and different doses can cause anything from a mere thinning to complete baldness.

Julie’s story is also about courage, both mother & daughter seem to be on their own mission….I can’t begin to imagine what Sarah has been feeling during this journey….it has not been easy. She has been so strong, so brave,courageous and what a fighter my girl is!
