You may have noticed the Twihearted candy heart on the right sidebar.
It's an idea started by Dangrdafne I believe. In honour of Twitarded's SnarkierThanYou's mom there is a tribute page on the American Heart Association site. Click the heart to be taken the American Heart Association to donate to fighting heart disease.
STY is a very lovely lady and she wrote a very moving post after her mother suddenly passed away last year. Her post and her tribute page at the AHA has reminded me to kick the ass of every patient who isn't taking care of themselves. I've become much more strict with making sure everyone has a normal blood pressure, sugar level, and cholesterol. Smoking, eating poorly, and not exercising are all things that I'm harping on about again. Don't get me wrong - I would always shake my head and tsk-tsk but now I'll give them "the talk" over and over until they're so sick of me they actually decide to change their habits.
So please go and donate. And of course take care of yourselves.
For those friends who know me in real life, I vow to exercise more too okay? :) And you know Mr. TC forces me to eat my veggies as much as possible so no worries there.
