Moxxie Blog Hop...Road to Recovery

It's time for another Moxxie Blog Hop! Join the Moxxie Muses the first Friday of every month to be inspired and for the chance to win a complete collection of the featured line! We're continuing our blog hop series with the Road to Recovery collection.



 

Moxxie released the Road To Recovery collection, an elegant and poignant line designed for people fighting long-term illnesses, in July. Moxxie thought it was time to create a beautiful line that focused on healing, but also encouraged the writer to be honest about what they were really going through. The designs of this collection are versatile and can not only help a patient document their recovery, but it can also be used for get well, thinking of you, and sympathy cards, as well as to create layouts on just about any topic.

This collection means so very much to me!  Cancer has affected my family in so many ways over the past 12 years.  In 2000, my father was diagnosed with Lung Cancer and he lived 8yrs fighting this nasty disease.  He was a hero in my eyes and definitely a fighter!!  Once he was diagnosed we begun to work with our local Relay For Life, which was just getting started in our county.  We continued to participate through the years and watched my father participate in the Survivor lap and met him half way through the Survivor lap and supoorted him!!  In August 2007, I was diagnosed with Thyroid Cancer and proceeded on with 2 surgeries.  In November 2007, my Aunt Wanda (my dad's twin) was diagnosed with Breast Cancer.  This now meant that my dad would not have to "walk" the Survivor lap alone, my Aunt and I would both be by his side.  This is one of those laps that you DON'T ever want to have to participate in.  It was definitely a moment to cherish and one I will never forget!!  Unfortunately, it was my FIRST Relay For Life as a Survivor and my father's LAST one.  My dad passed away about 2 months later, and only 6 days before my 1yr Cancer Anniversary!!  I know he was next to me celebrating and he has been by my side through all of my ups and downs.  This layout that I created using this collection was a very difficult one to do, but rewarding in the end too!!  I hope you enjoy this collection as much as I do!!!
