A Year ago my Mom died from Ovarian Cancer. August 22 at 2045.
A Year ago I trooped an Ovarian Cancer Fundraiser. Shackstock 2014 .August 23 at 1400. (The organizer lost her mom to OC as well). In my Jawa, which was the only costume I had. Had to be done. Five guys from the Garrison came out and kept me safe. I 'utinni'd' with kids and danced with hoola hoops and all the while swallowed tears. Nobody let me get too far off by myself. It still sucked but I know my Mom would have wanted me to go.
This year I've trooped 3 Ovarian Cancer fundraisers: a night at Boston Pizza, Shackstock 2015, and a local Walk for Ovarian Cancer awareness. all in TK. With a picture of my mom taped inside my armour.
If i could afford it i'd make another suit and paint it Teal. I won a bucket at Fanexpo...might paint it Teal. I already made Burgandy and Purple eyes for my Jawa, which was in memory of my dad. Burgandy is the Myeloma Cancer colour and Purple associated with Dementia.
Sorry to ramble.
