Advocate/Author/Theme Consultant Teresa LeYung-Ryan here, wishing everyone safety, comfort, joy.

I think about my mom often. October is a bittersweet month for me -  it is the anniversary of my mother-daughter novel Love Made of Heart and Breast Cancer Awareness Month (my own mom died of metastasized breast cancer in 2000). This October (and every month) is cause for action for everyone who want to be involved in Gina L. Mulligan’s foundation Girls Love Mail and Gina’s beautiful gift book DEAR FRIEND: Letters of Encouragement, Humor and Love for Women with Breast Cancer (published by Chronicle Books).

3 ways to participate and honor AWARENESS, Girls Love Mail foundation, and letter-writing.
