The CLIC Sargent Yummy Mummy Week is the 10th to 18th March 2012. Anyone can join up and do something positive to help children with cancer.
This year, they are asking us to Do Something Yummy and come up with new ways to raise money. Click on the Yummy Mummy Link to join up and request an event pack.
Yummy Mummy is a fundraising campaign run by CLIC Sargent, the children’s cancer charity and for six years, mums in the UK have raised money to support the charity through the year.
Nickie @nickie72 From Typecast blog is one of the 4 Lead Blogggers on this campaign with Clic Sargent. She has set writing prompts to help bloggers join in with promoting the campaign and spreading the word. Visit her blog if you would like to take part.
I have chosen to do a Yummy Post as I do know someone who has had cancer and survived.
My mother is well into her seventies, although she certainly does not look it. She was diagnosed with breast cancer a month after our boys came to stay with us.
It was difficult coping with three toddlers who had no boundaries at the same time as trying to help a mother who then had to go through treatment, surgery and the aftermath – while I tagged along three bundles of mischief. It certainly brightened up the hospital ward.
She fought, and she fought hard. The treatment was tough and the stay in hospital was tough. She also had to contend with arthritis, thyroid disease, sciatica and is a type 1 diabetic.
The boys have been here for 8 years now, so the length of time she has been a survivor for is easy to remember.
It’s been hard going for her, so how difficult is it for a child to cope with? We all need to help with local charities and get involved where we can. I support a local charity with time already, and helping to spread the word about this scheme is an easy ask for me this week.
Nickie would love to see 50 link-ups for her writing prompts this week so please feel free to blog and link up with us on her blog on Thursday.

All I have to say is yay for your mum x Thankyou so much for supporting #dosomethingyummy
Thank you x
Your mum looks amazing!! Thanks for writing and linking up for the final week of the #dosomethingyummy prompts and showing your support.
She looks very healthy! My Dad was diagnosed with cancer the year I got married so that too is easy to remember. Although he died eventually, he survived cancer for 10 years and was 79 before he left us – that too, is a survival. I wish you and your Mum long happy lives!
She has good days and bad. Some days she can’t walk more than a couple of steps, but others she manages. She NEVER is seen without her make-up or her hair brushed and manipulated into its bob. She has me sworn to keep up her routine, when she cannot do it for herself 🙂
Great site and very informative!
Thanks for sharing your story about your Mother. It’s great to hear about her continued health and success. You’ve inspired me to lend my voice to the cause and share my Gran’s story.
I’ve read and commented on your blog. Remember to link up tomorrow. Thanks for joining in.
I have signed up, but not having a blog, I can’t do the blogging. Good luck to everyone who is taking part.
Thank you. I hope there are lots of people who help to raise awareness.
Fabulous cause. We should all be promoting it. It is times like these that I wish I blogged.
You could always start a free blog you know…Wordpress, Blogger, and it could be your first post………
