Welcome to Day 4 of our Back to Blogging event! Today we are writing about a woman who inspires us.

I bet you didn’t know that September is Ovarian Cancer Awareness month.

And I bet you didn’t know that our Electrolux contest sponsors are donating $200 to the Ovarian Cancer Research Fund for each Turquoise Sky Washer and Dryer pair purchased. They are working with Kelly Ripa to raise $500,000 for the OCRF  to support early detection and ultimately complete eradication of the disease.

In honor of the great things that Electrolux and Kelly Ripa are doing for Ovarian Cancer, I wanted to feature an ovarian cancer survivor who is also a blogger and who recently has inspired me to beware of my ovaries.

Sandhy is the author of Ovarian Cancer??…Pass The Wine Now!! where she writes her ongoing story as well as provides amazing information on early detection and additional avenues to support research.

Diagnosed with Ovarian Cancer, “stage 3b in February 2008 at age of 46” Sandhy says, “my sense of humour grew bigger with every single chemo. I laugh in your general direction! Beat that! :o)”

I applaud Sandhy for her amazing attitude and can only hope if I ever have to face a beast like cancer I can do it with a fierceness as positive as hers. Inspirational indeed.
