When death is not the end ...

It may be 5 months since Dina Rabinovitch died, but her blog continues to attract visitors - at this point there are 106 comments on her last post.

Dina set herself a target - to raise £100, 000 for the CTRT appeal at Mount Vernon Hospital and she donated all the proceeds from her book, Take Off Your Party Dress, to the appeal.

The amount raised currently stands at £109,998.59 and people are still donating.

It just goes to show ...
Some people have a life force so powerful ... so irresistible ... that even death can't stop it in its tracks.

Five months? Glad to see her memory and her cause is still going. Breast cancer affects us all in one way or another.

We sent out a copy of the book into the blogworld to spread the word. I wonder where it is now?

That is amazing and remarkable. Long may the power of her words roll.

An amazing story. I had no idea. My younger sister had breast cancer at 40 (went for a routine first mammo and there it was). But now 7 years later she's fine. It's good to remember how lucky we've been.

Ab Van - indeedy.

Sueg - I doubt if there are any of us who haven't been touched in one way or another by cancer. Dina's book is truly amazing ... and also of course horribly sad.

I loved the book, and her blog. Can't believe it's five months. Thanks Debi x
