The Lion Next Door – And More – At Big Cat Rescue

  • 8:31 am Sunday, November 5th, 2017 by Ann Kelly

It’s hard to describe exactly how I felt hearing a lion’s roar early on a Saturday morning while walking through Big Cat Rescue. After all, I had just gone through the drive-through right next to the sanctuary for a latte not five minutes before and now I was in the middle of one of the most precious places in Tampa Bay. Big Cat Rescue is in the Citrus Park area and was there long before there was a mall, subdivisions and what you probably think of the whole area as being now. But twenty-five years ago Big Cat Rescue [More]

  • 7:42 am Sunday, October 22nd, 2017 by Ann Kelly

After Hurricane Irma tore through the Bay area a lot of people dealt with damaged, leaky roofs. But imagine if that were nothing out of the ordinary on a daily basis? A friend of Charlene McClintock of Seminole put her name in for the opportunity to win a new roof from Arry’s Roofing and told us her story;

Making Strides Is Saturday!

  • 5:47 am Wednesday, October 11th, 2017 by Ann Kelly

Making Strides Against Breast Cancer has always been an emotional and motivating experience for me. My Mom is a double-mastectomy survivor and the reason I get my annual mammograms. I also love making new friends, celebrating survivors and honoring the memories who are not with us. But we walk with a purpose. Out aim is a cure, a world without breast cancer, a world with more survivors. You can help us do that this Saturday, October 14th. I’ll be at the Shops of Wiregrass in Wesley Chapel . It’s a pleasure to introduce you to another survivor that joined us to tell [More]

Making Strides Against Breast Cancer

  • 7:34 am Monday, October 2nd, 2017 by Ann Kelly

Breast cancer isn’t something I think about once a month; I think about it every day, every time I talk to my Mom up in Ohio. She’s a double mastectomy survivor and the reason I make sure to take care of myself and get my annual mammogram. I just did that, and it’s all good. But for some women it’s not. I’ll be introducing you to three wonderful women who are breast cancer survivors and will be walking with us at our Making Strides Against Breast Cancer Events. Marse Walsh will be walking in Pinellas.

Please join me and all [More]
