1 in 8 women in the U.S. will develop invasive breast cancer in her lifetime.
*** On August 17th, 2015 I became 1 in 8 ***
Shortly after I was diagnosed with breast cancer, I had the idea to design the Calling All Sistahs Collection to help create awareness beyond just the month of October, to hopefully make a difference. In honor of all who have been affected by breast cancer, I donate 50% of the profits from this special collection of stamps and dies to NBCF.org to support breast cancer awareness programs.
Please join us on the 17th of each month for my special Calling All Sistahs monthly reminder post: a personal reminder from me to you to do your self breast exams.
It's a little thing you can do for yourself, and something that saved my life.
This comes from my most grateful heart. Most of us have never met but YOU all matter to me!
I want YOU to be safe.
I want YOU to have choices.
I want YOU to know that cancer is not contagious
but YOU can catch it...early!
And if YOU do...YOU my sistah will be ok!
7 out of 8 women have nothing to worry about.
*****But what about that 1?*****
She doesn't even know it yet.
She needs to be ok.
She is our sistah.
I hope you'll join us on the 17th for the reminder post and then again on the 18th when we host a new inspiration challenge for encouragement cards.
