This is the challenge over at Ike's World Challenge for 2 weeks.  This is the second week.  Hop on over, use one of Ike's most generous freebies, or one of Ike's images you might already have.  If neither, take a visit to Ike's great store.
Ike has a brand new release of images that are sure to knock your socks off!
You will need one of her images to quality for the sur-PRIZE!!!

You know, it always hits me that cancer is most often talked about in terms of womyn, and is now coming to light about men - particularly breast cancer.

What rarely gets put in the fold in our "Cancer Awareness Month" (breast cancer awareness month) is cancer of our furbabies and cancer of all the other living animals out there.

I know plenty of us have had to part with our furry loved ones (myself way too recently) because of tumors, cancers and the like.

So for my post, I want to highlight this.

Awareness of "The Other"

Let's say a prayer or have awareness of mindfulness for all of them this month as well.
