October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month!
Artisans across the globe are raising funds to help battle breast cancer, and I would like to do my part, too. Nick's grandmother, Sharron, is a breast cancer survivor and is currently recovering splendidly, albeit she had her share of pain and suffering. Brave women like Sharron suffer every day from breast cancer, while still retaining positive attitudes and still remain active in their communities as much as they can, to bring awareness to this cause. Seeing Sharron through this ordeal has made her family much closer than before, and much more determined to help her and other women like her beat breast cancer for good. I've gone through my shop, grabbed all the 'pink' stuff, and moved it all into the b r e a s t C A N C E R section in my Etsy shop, with 50% of the proceeds of these items being donated to the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation during the month of October (2009). Take a look at the wonderful gifts you can give, and saving a woman's 'best friends!'
