I have Some EXCITING news!!!


Okay I have some very exciting news. I started a new blog called G.T.B Fights Cancer...What is this you might ask??? Twist my arm and maybe I'll tell ya....

Uncle uncle you win ill spill the beans. This is pretty cool, at least I think so. My boyfriend and I started a business called GET THE BEAN. We are selling awesome gourmet coffee :) Why coffee you may ask, because I LOVE it more than anything in the world. Seriously I do. I distinctly remember laying in my hospital bed day dreaming about being able to drink coffee again. So, we decided since we love it so much lets sell it.

What else does Meaghan love??? RAISING CANCER AWARENESS! Its kinda weird to think about because before I got sick I could never have imagined I would dedicate myself to this. I digress. Anyway I decided to combine the two things that make me happy these days, coffee and cancer awareness.

The GTB Fights Cancer blog is connected to our coffee website. Right now our coffee website is not up. We expect it will be in the next couple of days. When it is we are going to do a HUGE giveaway and then we will do giveaways every week. But that is in addition to our fundraising. If you want to check out our fundraising and find out how you can get $$$ from our coffee business to donate to the Cancer Charity of your choice stop by the new blog. We have instructions as well as my story. AND...we already have one story up!

Please check it out and let me know what you think!

I came by to thank you for stopping by my blog and to clue you in on Twilight... but before I do first things first. What an inspiring blog you have. You are making a real difference in the world and educating those of us who don't know much about cancer. I'm so happy that you are a survivor and that you are sharing your knowledge. Keep up the GREAT work!

Now, Twilight! Twilight is a series of books that are on the NY best sellers list, written by Stephenie Meyer. I'm half way through the 3rd book and I believe she is about to publish the 5th book. I didn't think I would love these books as much as I have, especially when I was told they are about vampires... and warewolves. Not my thing!!! But oh my work Stephanie has captivated me in her writing and I can't stop. Twilight is the name of the 1st book and the movie releases in theaters nationwide November 21. I can hardley stand the wait!!! These books are entertaining for young and old. The youngest person I've talked to that has read them is 12 and the oldest person was 42. So I hope that clears some things up for you and if you ever get the chance in your busy life, give 'em a try. They really are entertaining... otherwise just go see the movie with your girlfriends, it will prove to be a great girls night out. :) Best wishes & I look forward to reading more from your blog.

I have never understood the coffee craze. But, my husband has to have his coffee every morning, it is the first thing he thinks about. Maybe you can introduce me to some that would help me understand. :)

Meaghan, thank you for stopping by my blog! What an inspiring story you have, I'm so glad you kicked cancer. Please come back & see me again for some decorating inspiration.

Jenn said...

Meaghan,

GOOD for YOU! I too am a cervical cancer survivor, was diagnosed in my 5th month of pregnacy in 2006. Luckily we caught it in time and was able to remove it ALL with surgery. If I hadnt been pregnant I can bet I wouldnt be so lucky! This is a great blog, Im all for CC Awareness! Im adding you to my blogroll

KDLOST said...

great idea, girl!
good luck with everything.
happy friday! cheers!

Jenn said...

Girlfriend!!

I so know what you mean about feeling alone. When I was diagnosed it was a MAJOR rush to see this cancer DR and this OBGYN, they actually wanted to do the surgery at 5 months pregnant and risk the baby's health! I said NO WAY! I saw a few different cancer Drs who said it was in fact, ok to wait til after I delivered. 3 weeks after I had him I had a cold knife cone biopsy which removed all of the cancer. I go every 4 months for a pap now. I read your story and cry because you are TOO damn young for this! I also smile at how inspiring you are!

Becky :) said...

That is way cool Meaghan!!!!! What a great thing to do.

By the way, I presented you with an award over on my blog. Come on over and check it out. It was from yesterday.
