I am honoured to be part of this amazing Blog Hop supporting Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Breast Cancer has touch my family more than many, and I count myself as lucky to be one of the survivors. I pray each day for that to continue. Make sure you get your check ups regularly. In the UK we are lucky that the NHS call us for mammograms, but don’t just wait, if you notice a difference when you do your regular and routine self exam (you are doing them, right!), get it checked out!!!!! It could save your life.
When I came to design my project I thought about doing a simple card, but then memories of going through Chemotherapy kept coming back to me and I thought I would like to create something that I would have been touched to have received during this time.
I think we are all too aware of the impact that Chemo can take on your body with hair lose, sickness, weight gain, the list is horrible and long. Strangely one of the things that I found most annoying was the way that it mucked about with my taste buds, so I would suck sweets a lot (which may have been part of the reason for the weight gain of course!) My project is a sweet holder, specifically a Large Size Strawberry Fields TicTac holder (the pink just seemed to be the right way to go). I am hoping that the messages and the Ribbon of Courage will help to give any Breast Cancer fighter a little boost.
Please take the time to visit as many of the hoppers as you can, they all have wonderful projects to share, and some amazing stories. The next person on the list is Connie Babbert, please take the time to visit her blog
