Showers Of Pink Rose Petals

Successful donation drive for breast cancer survivors.


Remember my friend, Anne Dewhirst? We wrote a blog last month about her donation drive for breast cancer survivors in Mexico.

We always knew you West Coasters had big hearts! The drive has been more successful than Anne could have hoped for.

" To all the women and businesses that have donated mastectomy bras and prosthetics towards my Breast Cancer donation drive for the women of Mexico, may you be wrapped in ribbons of love and showered with pink rose petals. Thank you from the bottom of my heart. "

Dew Unto Others

One woman's donation drive for breast cancer survivors in Mexico.


Women are expected from a young age to be nurturers, often at the expense of their own health. I believe that cancer, particularly breast cancer, is sending women the message that they must learn to nurture themselves first.

My friend, Anne Dewhirst, is a breast cancer survivor.

Appreciating that she needs to nurture herself, Anne is planning an extended vacation in sunny La Penita, Mexico! But, the nurturer in Anne is still there. She can't just relax on the beach without doing for others first. That's Anne!


Tunes For Tuesday - Andrea Smith

The irrepressible Andrea Smith.


With three albums of original music under her belt, and a total of eight, count 'em, eight Vancouver Island Music Award nominations, it is safe to say that Andrea Smith knows a thing or two about writing music! 

You will fall in love with this bluesy West Coast jazz singer. There is just something so warm and familiar about her voice.
