Twilight is my favorite time of the day. The sky is getting dark and the lights are Just comming on. But here in the Ozark the rolling hills in many shades of green are a wondrous sight as the sun dips below the horizon. This is just part of every day life here in the Ozark.

Cancer, Anyone?
This is the blog for my daughter, Teresa. She was diagnosed with breast cancer December 2008 just before Christmas. Her blog is about her dog's cancer and about her cancer. It tell you all the medical procedures she went through, her thoughts and experiences during and after treatment. It is good reading for anyone who has cancer or anyone who know any one with cancer. She has what might be called sarcastic, and humorous way of dealing with this.
She lives in Riverside, in Southern California area called the Inland Empire. Trying to get medical treatment in an area that has one doctor for every 100,000. documented people and god know how many undocumented people is what California calls medical care. Maybe my statistics are off here but you get the idea.
She has decided that this in unacceptable, especially for someone that has just been told they have a devastating diagnosis like breast cancer. She has been asked to head up a committee to raise money to start a Breast Cancer Resource Center in the Inland Empire. IT will be called The Pink Ribbon Place. Her blog will also take you to their site where you will see the quilt that I made called Teresa's Water Garden. This quilt will be used to raise money for the new Center.
