Thanks to everyone for voting in the MyWeather Photo Contest.
We didn't win but we did give a couple of pro's a real run for their funds...

I have also heard from the MyWeather Marketing Director that the staff is now praying every morning over cancer fighters and their caregivers so that is more than enough to declare ourselves winners.

Take care of each other.

Life In A Day

There is a 'lead in' that will explain the film before you watch that I recommend you take the time to check out.

The 24 hour period was on July 24th of 2010 (filmed by regular people during the activities of their day all around the world) but the complete film was shown live streaming last night at the "Sundance Film Festival." 
The film will be released later this year so stay tuned but meanwhile, you can watch teasers and footage.

My son and I participated by contributing a portion of our day, mine being the National Dragon Boat Championships in Chattanooga, TN among my fellow breast cancer survivor sisters and his being a trip to the mall with friends preparing to head for Daytona Beach, Florida with his church youth group. Due to thousands of hours of film footage submitted, we did not make in the final film cut but it was awesome to be a part of such an incredible project.

Turned out Magnificent! 
Life, So Fascinating! 
People, So Interesting! 
Real People, Real Souls, Real one day, all over the world!

This film will change how you see your life and the life of others.

It's not religious or political. It's all about people and life.

Please take the time to check out the site and when the the film is available and possible for your viewing, sit and watch and let it move you into compassion for your fellow man.

The ending was, well, you'll just have to see for yourself.

Stay tuned and enjoy...
I will also keep you posted.

You can support young adult cancer fighters by purchasing my 'Twournal', my journal of tweets and twitpics from 4/2009-12/2010.

It's not "War and Peace," just a collection of my copyrighted original quotes, thoughts, adventures and challenges as I found myself back on the battlefield with the second stage 4 cancer (breast w/bone mets).

Twitter has offered to donate 50% of all sales of my 'Twournal' to one of my favorite young adult cancer fighter foundations. (TBA)

The cost is $35 with free shipping in the US.

Being For Real, Light Shining Down On Her

Shining Down On Her." - Angie Suttles (copyright 1/1/2011)

Excerpt from book

I wanted to share the story behind the picture I entered in the "Breast Investigator's" Contest that you guys are voting for on my behalf. This is an excerpt from the project (solo book) I am currently writing, which is the story of my journey through two stage 4 cancers in my 30's.

My son, Caleb, took this picture the first time I lost my hair in 2004...he had already seen me battle the first cancer in 1998 at the tender age of five years old but the Vulva cancer was not treatable with chemotherapy so when the treatment from the second cancer (breast) in 2003 took my hair, I made the decision that I would offer him my head as a blank canvas to express his feelings towards the events he was now witnessing his mother face. He started out with a simple painting of eyes on the back of my head, joking that he wanted to tell his friends that his mother really did have eyes in the back of her head. Then he asked to photograph me on one of the worst days of my entire life. It was a day that I would challenge God to take me to heaven and end the suffering or grant me one of those TV preacher promises of a 'suddenly' and heal me instantly. My body was racked with greater pain than I knew was even possible. I could hardly lift my head but knew this moment, I could not afford to miss. It was a moment that was an unction from the Holy Spirit, Himself, proclaiming to me that God would use my son to unfold a truth on my behalf if I would dare to allow Him the opportunity. I thought it to be much less than it would become. I lessened it with my human reactions and responses. I imagined it as a tool that would bring my son to more familiarity with the current situation for an end results being that of comfort and less fear. I understand now it would be the chance for me to see myself, Caleb's mom, through his faith-filled eyes, that childlike faith that we as adults have forgotten. I wanted to name the picture, "Being For Real" but he was more than adamant to name the picture, "Light Shining Down On Her." To see myself through the eyes of my ten year old as I was in such a place of despair was a true gift from God. My son saw light shining through the window piercing the top of my hairless head and he interpreted it as hope and courage, strength and the Glory of God. I wanted to expose the pain of a human being's life as they battle cancer but he wanted to reveal the "Giver of Life."
