Breast Cancer Awareness
October is Breast Cancer Awareness month. I won't be here next week to post these ATC's, so I'm sharing them today. I'm hosting a swap with this theme. My ATC's are made from this fabric that I quilted last month. I cut it up and added a diecut ribbon made from sparkly felt. I stamped the word hope on the bottom with brown staz-on ink. The little rhinestone represents hope...that sparkly shiny thing that sits out there pulling for those who are facing the cancer demon. I think hope is one of the most important things when facing cancer.
I am fortunate that my breast biopsy last year was benign. I have friends who are not so lucky. I am a 4 year melanoma survivor and do understand the value of hope and of friends and family who make it easier to face the rough days. Take a moment today to do something for a friend facing cancer or for their family. If you don't know anyone, then that's a little miracle in itself to be thankful for. There are so many wonderful products available right now with pink ribbons that support breast cancer research. Here is a shop where you can buy online. Call your doc and schedule your mammogram, remind you girlfriends and family to do the same. Do something to make a difference today.
