a lady who lunches

downtown | three wishes style

I was invited by a co-worker to attend a luncheon at The Tampa Club last week for the American Lung Association. There was a fashion show, delicious food and some great speakers. I was shocked to hear some of the stats about lung cancer, which is the leading cancer killer in both men and women in the United States and in 1987, it surpassed breast cancer to become the leading cause of cancer deaths in women.

We heard from a survivor and from a daughter whose mother lost her battle. There was not a dry eye in the place after these extraordinarily brave women got up and told their stories. It made me realize there is so much going on around us and sometimes we just need to stop and listen. All of my silly problems seem so insignificant compared to what some people are going through.

If you are interested in learning more about ALA or donating to this great cause, please visit their website.

Health and happiness to you.
