I am sure that you are all aware that October is Breast Cancer Awareness month. This month I celebrated with a good friend her 3 year anniversary of her surgery to remove the cancer that had invaded her breast. And with a very heavy heart I have learned of another one of my dear friends that will begin her fight with breast cancer. So as I sat down to make my inspiration card for this weeks Cutting Cafe post I had some inspiration from 2 very strong women whom I love very much. And because of them I want to stress the importance of Self Breast Exams. Don't wait until you are 40 and are now old enough to be sent for a routine mammogram. If you have breasts, do your self exams. Please.
I used the digi set, You Gotta Have Hope for my card. Added some lace from Wild Orchid Crafts, ribbon from Really Reasonable Ribbon, a crocheted flower from My Mind's Eye and a Hope charm to round it off.
Funny story, last week we were sitting with my daughter and her husband and a commercial came on about donating for breast cancer. My daughter asked the question, "why do you think they focus so much on breast cancer when there are so many cancers out there? It doesn't seem like they focus as much on the other ones."
My answer, "Because boys like Boobies!" My husband said, "yup, its cuz we like boobies!!" My thoughts are that yup our hubbies like boobies, but they would love us with or without those boobies as long as we are still here with them!!
