A little gift of love


I was recently reminded that October is Breast Cancer awareness month when Donna from Donna’s Designs commissioned me to make her a pink ribbon button to celebrate another year of being cancer free. She got me thinking about all the amazing women that I have known who have been affected by breast cancer in one way or another. I wanted to do something special in honor of them, to help spread the word that monthly checks really do save lives. So I made this button....

My hope is that all the women in Blogland will put it on their blogs for the month of October to show our support of each other and help remind us all to take a few minutes every month and do a breast check. Remind your sisters, daughters and mothers, remind your best friends. You really could be saving their lives. So please copy the code under the button on my right sidebar, place it in an html gadget and help spread the word!!!!

I am linking up with Beverly of How Sweet the Sound  for this weeks Pink Saturday. I mean what could be more appropriate???  Thank you Beverly for helping me get the word out, and thank you to all of you in advance for putting the button on your blog! Have a great weekend!

Thank you, Karen. I always think of the old saying "An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure".

I pray daily that a cure be found for all types of cancer. We've come a long way, but there is still a long way to go.

Karen, Thanks for the button I love the design. In January I'll be a 5 year survivor of uterine cancer. It is important for women to have regular check ups and they need to listen to their bodies.

Hi Karen! I posted today on my blog about breast cancer awareness. Thanks so much for creating the badge. It is on my blog as well as the picture of the badge in my post. It can't be stressed enough to check yourself, and in my case, get a mammogram once a year. Very, very important.

Brittany said...

Oh thank you Karen! My Aunt just started her chemotherapy for Breast cancer about a month ago. I flew to Utah a few days ago and we had a chance to shave her falling out hair. It was such a special experience to be there and I'm grateful to be able to put this button on my blog to raise awareness. Loves!

Heidi said...

Hi Karen, I have just been enjoying your blog (linked from tarnishedandtattered) and want to thank you for offering this great button. I may be a little late, but am putting it in my sidebar. I have had a friend just a few weeks ago (another one) diagnosed with breast cancer and want to honor all those brave women in their fight.
