I know I usually do a tutorial on Mondays but since October is Breast Cancer Awareness month, I thought I should take the opportunity to talk a little bit about that subject today. I have several friends in different stages of breast cancer. Not a pretty topic at all and I’m fairly certain, it’s the one time that it’s acceptable to “hate” something. My dad passed away from pancreatic cancer. I’ve seen and experienced it’s path of destruction. The journey is never very pretty no matter what type of cancer it is, neither for the patient or his/her family. I have not been involved with the Susan G. Komen Foundation though I have heard of it and I have friends that support it in numerous ways. With three friends suffering from the effects of either the news or the therapy, I feel very strongly about doing something now.
So today I am featuring a card that I am selling using my own die. (The die is not currently available). For each card purchase, I will give a percentage back to the Foundation. It is my hope that, not only will a cure be found, but we would all link arms in supporting those who are fighting this horrible disease. That is straight up talk from my heart. If you are interested in purchasing one of these cards, please contact me through my e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org or later this week through etsy, where I hope to have an account established. In the meantime, to my dear, sweet, friends who are on this tough journey, Gale, Maria and Kristie, as well as Karin’s sister, Kathy and so many others, please know you are strong, brave and courageous. I am praying for you! For those who are survivors, congratulations! It was certainly difficult at best but you fought the good fight and won. And to the countless women and men who were not so fortunate, I hope we love on your families as they deal with the loss on a daily basis. I am so sorry. Please look for tomorrow’s post as well because it has the same tie-in with a different item up for sale. It’s a limited edition…unless you can find me more. Last time I was up to 26…Did you guess? Think pink…come back tomorrow!
P.S. I will return to my regular tutorial next Monday.
