May is Brain Tumor-Awareness Month

Raise funds

North Richmond — Each May, the brain tumor community steps up its efforts to raise awareness, educate people and raise funds for exploration and empower everyone who has been affected by a brain tumor.

Did you know that half of the brain tumors reported each year are benign? One of these statics I am speaking about could be your neighbor or family member. Eventually even you could be touched with this possibly ominous ailment.

So, if you see someone wearing a shirt, with a grey ribbon pinned to it, be sure to smile at them for their brave effort to let the world know they survived a brain tumor, or would like to remember someone who did not.

I would like to take this time to thank God for allowing me to announce that I successfully underwent a brain tumor operation, at the UK Medical Center this past Friday and am well enough to be writing your column this Monday night.

Praise God’s holy name for being so good to me. My brain tumor was benign (non-cancerous) and I am healing in a rapid rate of time.

This is truly a special month! May 6-10, is National Teacher Appreciation Week, and, of course, we will celebrate Mother’s Day on Sunday. (Canada has chosen to celebrate this special day on Monday, May 20.)

And then, May is the month to recognize our servicemen and women with two forthcoming holidays marked on the calendar for this very purpose.

As Americans, we are called to remember and celebrate Armed Forces Day, and a national holiday, Memorial Day, later on, in this month.

Wasn’t it “Old Blood and  Guts” himself, Gen. George S. Patton Jr., who said,” To be successful, a soldier must always know his history?” We can all be better citizens if we know our history.       

The Mount Pleasant Christian Church will be celebrating Mother’s Day this Sunday morning by serving a pancake breakfast for all the mothers of the church. The breakfast will start at 9 a.m. and end in time for Sunday school. It will take place in the New Assembly Hall.  

Also, the Mount Pleasant Church is making plans for this summer’s vacation Bible school.  Please see Barbara Grimes or Pat West if you would like to help.

I have two belated birthday wishes to send: Zack Dudley and Kayla Dundley, both on May 14.  Also, I would like to say a big happy birthday to Tony Cuzickon. May 19. May God bless each of you with a wonder day!

The old adage for the week is: “Starve a cold and feed a fever,” or is it “Feed a fever and starve a cold?” You guys will have to figure this one out.

Contact me with any community events, church news or special days you want to place in my column by contacting me at karenquinn@roadrunner.com or call me at 527-0411.

Until next week, may God bless you and yours.
