A Very Special Girl

                                                                                                            April, 2016


          To the readers of My Big Girl Pants:


April 4th marks three years since Bridget passed away, and losing her is still hard to comprehend. Our hearts ache from missing her; her beautiful smile, her sharp wit and her engaging personality. It is impossible to capture everything she was in mere words. As our lives go on, we mourn the fact that she is missing those milestones all of us enjoy: weddings, babies, family trips, birthdays and simple joy. We know for certain, however, that she is with us at every turn, as, in Bridget fashion, she sends remarkable signs. We are reminded often that her spirit lives among us as we share memories of her and laugh the way she would have wanted. Bridget was truly unforgettable.

Her legacy lives on at Dana Farber also, as the Pink Angels near their goal. The Bridget Spence Fund goes directly to breast cancer research, to spare other young women impacted by this disease...certainly Bridget's greatest wish.

On this April 4th, please keep your fondest memories of Bridget alive.

I had the absolute pleasure of meeting Bridget on my very first Boston walk, I met her at an information meeting, I believe it was at a New Balance location but I don't recall the exact location.

We talked for quite a while before she revealed that she had breast cancer and I was shocked and saddened to learn such a young girl had breast cancer and she was not just another walker I happened to bump into.

One of the things she shared with me was losing her hair and how it affected her.

I have a dear friend that also went through breast cancer, it is her that inspired me to start the walks and her that inspired me to want to do more and make an immediate and direct impact on the lives of women with cancer.

With the guidance of my friend, giving me a personal perspective on cancer and with the inspiration from Bridget, I started looking for ways to help women and I started talking to women and their families during the walks and reaching out through support groups and I heard from many many women and their families about hair loss and keeping them all in mind, I started a 501C3 non-profit that we call Green Zinnia.

We recognize that wanting your hair is not a matter of vanity and so we focus on funding wigs for women who have lost their hair to cancer. I don't believe a women should have to choose between paying household bills, paying medical bills or paying for a wig and that's exactly what women and families have told me that they are doing.

Women have told me they feel guilty for wanting their hair back.
Husbands and families have told me they feel guilty for not being able to give that to their wives.

I don't want this to sound like an ad, it's not an ad, it's just meant to let you know that Bridget was an inspiration that helped to start an idea that turned into a project that became a passion that is helping women and will continue to help women.

We have are working and growing and adding services to what we do and I often think of Bridget and the young girl that was so candid and open with me, a complete stranger and newbie to the 60 miles that lay in front of me and she left an impression on me that I will never forget.

I'm so sorry for the loss of your beautiful wife, meeting her for a short time, I can see that you are a lucky man to have her in your life.

Today of all days I started reading this blog. I just noticed the date. My thoughts and prayers are with Bridget's family

Dottie Mooney said...

Hi, Dee, I am Bridget's mother. Because of the date, I checked the blog and was surprised to see your post. It has been 4 years since Bridget's death, so the blog is mostly quiet now.
I hope it gives you strength, wherever you are in your journey. Bridget was an incredible human being and she would be so happy to know you are reading the blog. It was her vehicle to reach the most people at one time. She had a large following and was loved by so many. BC is a horrible disease. Let's hope we find a cure in the near future. Good luck to you.

I haven't been to the blog site in quite awhile, but I think of Bridget VERY often, and share her story with friends. Several of my friends have been diagnosed with breast cancer, and 2 have coped with metastasis since their initial diagnosis. Sharing her story helps to give my friends strength and encouragement. Bridget's legacy lives on.

I was so devastated and broken early in my youth, when I thought I was going through just a normal pain, only to discover I was having a growing cancerous lump on my breast, i have since risen above it and got the lumps dissolved through the herbal medicine of Dr Jose Alessio, he is a renowned herbal doctor, you also can beat this, write to him for spiritual and herbal help on joseherbals28@gmail.com do not die in silence

The Treehotel is a popular restaurant in north Indian cuisine and offers mouthwatering dishes that are a delight and food lovers haven. Most of all its curries and the food here are made fresh with incredible variety of choice in the menu. What's more there are plenty of options here for vegans, with their food being well cooked with just the right seasoning and spices without overdoing the chili or the masala. With excellent service and pricing it is a must visit for any and every food lover. It has been recommended by both the Oxfordian Food blogger and also oxford's restaurant guide. Located on Iffley village, it is a credit to north Indian cuisine!
