Breast Cancer bracelets are coming

The fundraiser bracelets are being mailed out! Some of you could receive them sometime this week already.  And... I have an idea...



Will you email me a picture of yourself wearing your bracelet? I'd love to know how far my bracelets are going? I know one went to Canada. And others have gone all over the United States, with many staying close to here. So if you'd take a picture with yourself wearing your bracelet, and hold up a small sign telling us where you are from, we'll post your photo on my blog! Please will you? My kids would love to see where you all are from.  We've been amazed and completely overwhelmed with the response.  Plus I plan to print them out and collage them somehow, so would be so honored if all those near and far would help us with our mission!

Email the jpeg file of your photo to vwestra14@gmail.com and I will post them to my blog.




How cute are these?  If you live in the FM area they may be coming to a door handle near you!  I understand there will be some info. tucked inside about the benefit and perhaps a treat or two.  Love hearing about all the things going on behind the scenes!!  May Day may take on whole new twist!



So now for some good news.  I will get randomized for one of three arms of the study today!  My brain MRI was CLEAN!  So if the 6 tubes of blood they took from my arm today are in normal ranges, I will be given the okay to start at 9 am.

But here is where I could use some help for all of my prayer warriors.  It would help me even more if I were to get randomly selected for the experimental arms of the study, versus the one arm that is standard treatment.  Standard treatment is still okay to do, but it could be all the more beneficial to be in the one with the new meds.  If there is one thing I know, admission into clinical trials may be random, but God isn't random in hearing our prayers.  Thank you.


One of my new blog loves, is Marion who blogs over at Joy and Wonder.  

She wrote the most exquisite post about Grace, and I am so honored she sees me in that light, but truly there is a big takeaway for everyone that reads it.  I highly encourage you to check her out, its a beautiful read, and not to be missed.  

Love and blessings to you all!

  1. Why do you think we all keep coming back here, praying for you, and hugging you tight????? It's because grace is all sticky and sweet and we are all covered with it after being here!!!! LOVED that post of Marion's. Thank you for the link! Nothing better than down to earth, chew on this, nuggets of truth.

    I'm praying that every little minute detail of your treatment will be from Him. And oh, don't I remember that little verse that says, "The steps of a good man are ordered by the Lord. . ." Psalm 37:23. That means EVERY step!!! No mistakes, no mishaps, no off-track steps, etc.

    Thank you for a taste of grace today.
