The Purple Jacket is pleased to take part in this year’s Progressive Holiday Blog Party with the wonderful members of Caregiving.com.  The Community at Caregiving.com  is like having an extended family;  I am proud to be a part of this wonderful group!

For those first time visitors to ‘The Purple Jacket’ welcome and Thank You for stopping by!  I blog about my Caregiving SONY DSCexperience for my partner, who I loving refer to as ‘The Little One.’  He was diagnosed with esophagus cancer in August of 2011.  Given three to four months to live, he has outlived all predictions.  While each one of us deals with the reality of cancer in a different way, each one of us wants to look on the bright side of life. Yesterday is gone, today is here, not sure about tomorrow. It is our hope that lets us withstand problems; it is our beliefs that let us find solutions.

To learn more about me,  I invite you to visit my ‘about page’ on my website by clicking here.

My Blog Talk Radio Show, Be A Healthy Caregiver’  airs every Tuesday at Blog Talk Radio1:00 pm.  If you would like to be a guest on the show, please contact me at Chirs@thepurplejacket.com

Currently I am the coördinator of Senior Services with SunServe Social Services in Wilton Manors, FL.SunServe logo deb  I am also an M.A. Candidate attending Gonzaga University studying Leadership and Communication .

Remember…We Might Have Cancer…But Cancer Does Not Have Us!

  2. First time visitor from Caregiving.com Holiday Blog party!
    So glad “The Little One” is outliving all predictions. Love hearing those accounts!
    When my mother had a heart attack at age 79, her cardiologist would not give her a stress test because he said she’d already exceeded his expectations. She went on another 14 years, far exceeding his predictions. 🙂

I’m glad you mentioned the radio show. I can’t listen to it live since I’m working but I will start downloading the podcasts. Happy holidays!

  5. Hi Chris!! Happy Holidays! I’m so glad you’re a stop on the party circuit. I love your snow! I did something similar on my site for a few hours yesterday but it didn’t look as nice as yours. 🙂

    What’s your favorite part of the holiday season?

  6. Hi Chris, I’m sl-ow-ly making the rounds of the holiday
    progressive blog party, in between caregiving and grandkid duties.
    🙂 I, too, loved the snow. Especially since we don’t have ours yet!
    But hopefully it’s coming! And what a great point at the end – and
    true for so many medical issues and diseases! Thank you for that
    important reminder.
