Best cancer blogs nominations

Best health blogs 2013
Healthline
This year Healthline has nominated my blog as one of the best health blogs of 2013. While I am very honored to be nominated again, I never quite understand why they include me.

Now they are running a contest for the best blog. The winner gets $1000, second place gets $100, and third place gets $50. You can vote from any US based Facebook or Twitter account once every 24 hours.

While any bit of money is welcomed, I know there are others who are not as well off. If I had my choice I would say to vote for Ann over at Breast Cancer? But Doctor I Hate Pink! and vote for her blog.

The reasons are this: She was diagnosed two years after me, had a a recurrence and now is living the stage IV lifestyle which includes missing one salary (hers) which I presume means money is somewhat tighter in her household than mine. Stage IV means you live scan to scan, treatment to treatment so its not a lot of fun either. She won last year and I hope she won last year and I hope she wins again this year.

So please think of me, but vote for Ann

Will do! I'll vote for Ann. You both have great blogs.
Thanks for "passing" your nomination on to someone else because of their situation - says a lot about the kind of person you are.

Caroline, this is unbelievably kind of you. When I was diagnosed, you were one of the first blogs I discovered and have been with you ever since. I'm so grateful you have asked people to vote for me. You are right, I had to give up a job I loved, and my son is a senior in high school, so if I do win, the money will go towards his college education.

Thank you for your generosity and kindness. Happy Thanksgiving.
