In Honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month

Blog surfing again and loving what everyone is up to in terms of celebrating Breast Cancer Awareness Month so I broke out an old favorite of mine-- the Hope set-- to make a card for this occasion.
Never has this hit so close as this month. My mom had a cancer scare this month. It ended up just being a scare and all is well, but boy it was too close for comfort. My friends were so wonderful. I'm amazed by the power of prayer. And, I've had a friend or two deal with cancer this year and they've been so amazing and strong. I'm in awe of their strength.

My best friend is celebrating 10+ years cancer free. I met her after her battle with cancer. I cannot even begin to imagine my life without her, her family and kids in it. She is one of the most generous, loyal and giving people I've ever known. We take part every year (and helped organize for many years) the Relay For Life in our community. It's a great time to give back and we've met some really phenomenal people through that event.

I have another friend who is taking part in a 60K Susan G. Komen Race in Houston later this month to raise money for breast cancer research. She is doing 60 miles in her wheelchair. I'm in awe of her stamina and desire to make a difference.

People are truly amazing!

This is so pretty! What a great card to commemorate Breast Cancer Awareness month. I'm glad it was just a scare for your Mom and nothing more serious.
