She Colors My Day

As most of my blog readers already know, I lost my best friend last month, after a 9-month battle with ovarian cancer. I wish there would be more awareness and support opportunities for ovarian cancer; but, for now, the main emphasis on female cancers seems to be breast cancer.  I’m still happy to do my part to support breast cancer awareness and the search for a cure.  So, when I heard about the She Colors My Day movement, I wanted to share with you. 

SCMD logoThe She Colors My Day project began when a mother named Annette, dying of breast cancer, created a keepsake for the four daughters she was preparing to leave behind. Annette sent a c.d. of she and her daughters singing to her many friends and family. Unbeknown to Annette, her act of love would be the inspiration for her friend, Cristina Carlino, founder of Project Miracle, to ignite the She Colors My Day movement - a celebration of the never-ending bonds of mothers and daughters. The now worldwide She Colors My Day movement embarks upon a global journey to create for a cure. Inspired by a mother's infinite love, this ever widening circle of caring will benefit the Susan G. Komen for a Cure ® Foundation and the Entertainment Industry Foundation's /Women's Cancer Research Group biomarker project. Hear the story in Cristina's own words here.

Become a fan (or “like”) She Colors My Day on Facebook, or follow She Colors My Day on Twitter.  Amy Grant has a new song called She Colors My Day as well – you can download the song or video from ITunes. You can also view the video here.  If you’ve ever lost a loved one to cancer, this will move you.

Check out She Colors My Day and think about how you can help.

Wow..this song is beautiful. I'm so very sorry to hear about your friend. It hurts so much to lose the ones we love.

My dad, who also died last year, wrote many songs and I'm so grateful for each and every one of them! He even wrote a song for me so this song, recorded by Amy Grant, would be an awesome treasure I know!

Thank you for sharing it!
