In August, I got a message from her. I knew that she had a history of breast cancer in her family and that she was going in for a biopsy. The message read, "Well, got my results back yesterday. I do have cancer - but the good news is that they caught it early!" She is handling it all amazingly well and her prognosis looks really good. She is even blogging about her journey and you can read her amazing story here.
Here's a special lunch for my girls, in honor of my "Irish Sister", Lori. We pray for you daily! To everyone reading this, be smart and get checked. Early detection is key, just ask Lori.
Our main entree is peanut butter and jelly sandwiches that have been cut with awareness ribbon cookie cutters. We used pink food safe markers to make them into breast cancer awareness ribbons.
Our vegetable side is carrots. We nickled them and put them into a triangle shaped silicone mold.
Our fruit side is strawberries and raspberries. We added a breast cancer awareness ribbon pick to them.
Finally, our dairy/dessert is vanilla yogurt with breast cancer awareness ribbon sprinkles.
