I have never been the type of person to leave my family for a “Girl’s Weekend”.  The weekends that I have had with the girl’s has always been pleasant, however, after careful consideration I have to say that my most special Pink Network Weekend was with my daughter.

As a mother, I’m very fortunate to have a 16-year-old daughter who actually enjoys being with her mom.  Most of the time, our travels are event-driven, but my most memorable weekend was an impromptu trip to Niagara Falls.  It was a damp day in March, but that didn’t stop us.

We toured the Falls, went to the Movieland Wax Museum, and took in the Oh Canada Eh? Dinner Show.  It was a quiet and relaxing weekend where we reconnected and took our relationship to a new level.

They grow up so quickly and one day, we’ll be walking her down the aisle and she’ll be tending to her own family.  I feel that I’m very blessed.   I think every Mom should embrace this fact and treasure every moment with their daughter.  They are truly our best friends.

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month and Telus is donating $400 in my name to the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation for participating.  Approximately 23,200 Canadian women and 180 men were diagnosed with breast cancer in 2010. This is a distressing number of people who may have to wait the typical 33 days from first noticing a lump to learning if they have breast cancer.

Furthermore, TELUS will donate $25 to The Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation for every pink BlackBerry Curve 9360 sold during the month of October.  Visit their website to learn more about how Telus is making a difference to women across the country.

I go for regular breast screenings as I want to continue to embrace my daughter and family for many years to come.  I ask that you retweet this blog post and support Telus’ breast cancer campaign.

Cheers to all of my friends!  Celebrate your breast friends today on Facebook.
