HOPE FOR A CURE


This morning I listed a new item in my supply shop on Etsy. Being that October is not that far away and happens to be Breast Cancer Awareness month, I thought there'd be many shops featuring a few Hope For A Cure items in their inventories. I went into the Etsy promotions forums and proudly posted a thread encouraging others to post their own Breast Cancer Awareness items. Pink ribbons, hearts anything!

Now I'm not sure if no one really had absolutely nothing or if everyone was so eager to participate in all the many BNR's on the promo forum that they could not take a moment to check out what they might have had in their own shop that would qualify.  All I do know is that October is just around the corner and people should be focusing on a very important calendar event, a reminder to all women ... as we all share this common fear and if we haven't battled this enemy personally we all know someone who has.  Breast Cancer has left no life untouched by its indiscriminate hand ... any color, any race almost any age. 

Maybe I just expect too much and find this subject close to my heart as I've lost a couple of close friends to this disease and have had several other friends who've had to go through mastectomies and chemo.   All that's left to say is I pray and HOPE FOR A CURE.

  1. I'm kind of shocked not more people have stuff out there already. It's a very worthy cause (last year The Man ran the Susan G Komen Run for a Cure here in Houston). Obviously I'm out to run this year, but you are right, there are so many other ways to participate. That is an AWESOME bead!!

  5. thanks for keeping breast cancer awareness in our thoughts. We have all been touched by it somehow. Thanks for stopping by the blog. It was somewhat therapeutic to post the journey. It was a long 4 days of driving especially with the animals! It does make you wonder how determined the pioneers were to cross the plains . Doing it in the relative luxury of a car was difficult . A wagon I am not so sure I would have made it . xx
