Today is the birthday of one very special lady, Marti. We've never met. I only know her first name. And she has probably never even heard of me. But that doesn't really matter, because this special lady has her very own support team - Team Teal - masterminded by her daughter (and my good blogging friend) Deb @ Paper Turtle.
You might be wondering what all the fuss is about. Well, Marti was diagnosed with Ovarian Cancer on 18th February 2011 and, since then, has been battling with chemotherapy treatments to reverse some of the damage. Her family has been bravely rallying around to support and encourage her - and I think, a birthday wish from some complete strangers might just help to make her day that little bit more special. Really, it's the least we can do!
If you get chance today, pop over to Paper Turtle to see Deb's own post and leave a little birthday message for her mum.
Happy birthday Marti x
