Girls Write Out
Tuesday, March 08, 2011

I loved Roseanne Roseannadanna. For you youngins, she was a character on Saturday Night Live back in its heyday, and Roseanne was created by Gilda Radna. A hysterical comedienne who married the only Willy Wonka, Gene Wilder. Gilda was taken from this life way too early by ovarian cancer. She was only 42 and because it was so hard to find and diagnose, she never really stood a chance.

Today, ovarian cancer is becoming easier to locate and treat thanks to the OCRF.org -- In fact, I can name you two survivors right now. They're authors on our latest devotional, whose proceeds will help to fund ovarian cancer research. A big round of applause for Diann Hunt and Sandra Bricker!!!

Unlike cancer, the devotional is fun, happy and uplifting. I'm giving two copies away today for those who leave a comment. Only two, because I want you to buy the copies and raise money to eradicate this horrible disease. This way, you can spend joyous time with God and know you've done an awesome thing just to get there.

I loved Roseanne, too! Gilda Radnor was an extremely talented actress who could make you believe whatever character she played was REAL...even Roseanne! And that's the truth. (insert a "raspberry" here) LOL

While I'm so glad that Diann and Sandra have been able to conquer cancer, as have I, there are sadly too many people who do not. We need to pray that God raises up wise scientists and doctors who can find the ultimate cure for cancer.

One of my best friends had a hysterectomy last year at 39 - but luckily they caught it all and she is now cancer free. But the sad part is that she found her husband late in life and now they won't have the children that she had always dreamed of.
One day there will be a cure ... one day.

I think that's really great--to send the proceeds to ovarian cancer research! I think it's great that Sandra and Diann are survivors, too. (Waving hello to you both.)

I'm still praying for you, Diann.

I already bought mine! It's a beautiful book, inside and out. So beautiful, I couldn't bear to flag the pages, and guess what? I don't have to because I found a pink satin ribbon inside that marks the spot. :-)

Warning: the devos are so good, it's hard to stop at just one.

I have searched for this devotional. Our local, Books-a-Million bookstore doesn't have it! I was very disappointed with their selection. I would love to have a copy to give to my daughter as a wedding gift. Thanks for all that you share with your readers. =)

Nobody's mentioned in a few days how Diann is doing? Is she feeling okay?

We're still praying for her and that this book will be a huge success!

My mother-in-law passed away 3 years ago from ovarian cancer. I agree, it is a horrible disease. I love you girls, and pray for you daily, especially Diann. I am thankful that you have written this devotional to help raise money for research. If I win, I promise to still buy a copy to give to a friend.
