Welcome to New Focus Daily (NFD) and to this most festive month of the year! Or as that classic holiday tune tells us, “the most wonderful time of the year.” And it is!    A cheerful and festive “welcome” to each of our NFD readers, both those who have been with us for a while as well as newcomers.   This month is all about friends, family, and celebration,.  It’s a season for love, joy, peace, and celebrating the season with those we love.  And sometimes it can be a time of sadness.  Our wish for all of our readers is that this be the best holiday season ever surrounded by loved ones, and for peace and comfort to those who need it.   We at New Focus Daily and Women Survivors Alliance hope to be a continued a source of hope and inspiration – and of course education – with each of our readers and advocates.   I hope that you will enjoy our December edition of NFD!

So what’s in store this month? Great ways to get organized during a very frantic season from the diva of organization Sara Skillen, and  another great seasonal recipe from Chef Mary who is always full of surprises.  We will have some of our special friends from Queen C. Hair who know how to glam it up holiday hair and extensions, and a great feature on brows and microblading from Jeannette Wirz, a permanent make-up specialist.     Miss Jessica Meyer is back for a holiday feature, and Linda Ragsdale is coming at us with a some really special surprises.   We’ll have several books and products for those special gift ideas, and lots more.

Speaking of gifts, it’s gift-giving time and we have got an easy fix for all of you soon-to-be harried shoppers! One of the many exciting things we have been busy with lately at the WSA is the new Survivor Collection line of jewelry.   “Like” us on Facebook to see a different piece featured each day or visit the WSA website – www.womensurvivorsalliance.org – to see more.  What a great way to recognize a survivor or your own cancer journey than by buying a piece of this beautiful and symbolic jewelry.   Proceeds come back to the WSA to support cancer survivor activities and programs including NFD magazine.  We have ran several features in NFD  that share the history of this awesome jewelry including an interview with Sue Paist, who along with her husband John, create these amazing pieces.  If you haven’t read these articles, they are worth a read!  Just take a peek in our archives and you will find them or give us a shout if you need help.

The best and most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen or even touched. They must be felt with the heart. Wishing you happiness.
