Winner of the K.I.S.S. and Teal Giveaway!



The Winner of the K.I.S.S. and Teal Giveaway is:


             Diane D.


(The winner was chosen using Random.org)

My thanks to Avon Books, Pam Jaffee and Jessie Edwards in particular, for donating the wonderful Avon Books tote bags and the lovely romances that are a part of the K.I.S.S. and Teal promotion!

I want to thank everyone who came by last week and left comments on the various posts!  Remember, the entire month of September is Ovarian Cancer Awareness Month, so please spread the word to Know the Important Signs and Symptoms of this often silent killer!



For years, women have known that ovarian cancer was not the silent killer it was said to be. Over the past decade, science has confirmed what women have long known: ovarian cancer has symptoms.

The symptoms are
  • Bloating
  • Pelvic or abdominal pain
  • Difficulty eating or feeling full quickly
  • Urinary symptoms (urgency or frequency)
As medical research continues to investigate this important issue, numerous studies have been published indicating that symptoms may not occur until late stage or that they may not improve health outcomes.  The Ovarian Cancer National Alliance believes that symptoms are still relevant, but they are not a definitive diagnostic tool.  Since there is no diagnostic tool for ovarian cancer, symptom awareness remains of key importance.  Being cognizant of symptoms can help women get diagnosed sooner.

OMG Sharon, I just saw your announcement and I'm in shock. It's a happy shock but, OMG. Thank you so much. It's really cheered me up as I was feeling a bit down in the dumps today. Thank you again.
