A loss is a loss...

October is about more than Breast Cancer.

I'm not in anyway minimizing breast cancer, I will wear my pink with thankfulness and strength.   If you've been around for awhile you know that my mom is a 3x breast cancer survivor.  I get screened twice a year and last year I had my first breast biopsy due to a suspicious mammogram.  It was thankfully benign.  

I know so many women who have not been as fortunate as I am.  

Positive Biopsies.  Surgeries.   Chemo.  Loss of a mom.  Sister.  Friend.

Breast Cancer is a Big Deal, no question. 

But it's not the only thing happening in October.  

In quieter spaces, although their voices become a bit louder each year, women are grieving a loss of a different kind.   

October is also Infant Loss Awareness Month.  If you or someone you love has lost a child to stillbirth, miscarriage, SIDS, or any other cause at any point during pregnancy or infancy, my heart hurts with you. 

GracefulWait Ministry

Once a month Plume is the host location for a support group for women who are grieving a loss or are struggling and grieving through infertility. 
Our group is called GracefulWait and we'd love to extend an invitiation to you or any woman you know who could use support of this kind.   

It doesn't matter if you lost your baby at  4 weeks or 40 weeks.  A loss is a loss.  We meet the 3rd Wednesday of Every month at 6PM, in the Gathering Room at Plume.  

Meeting Schedule for the Remainder of 2022
October 19, 6PM
November 16, 6PM
December 14, 6PM (One week early due to Christmas)

If you would like more information about this group, or attending a meeting for the first time feel free to respond to this email.  Your confidential email will come directly to my inbox.   

There is a group of women waiting to welcome you.  It's a club we did not join by choice...but we are here for you. 

On a Happier Note...
