October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month

For more than 20 years, the observance of National Breast Cancer Awareness Month each October has provided a time to reflect on loved ones who have won and lost the battle against breast cancer. It's also an opportunity to raise awareness toward finding a cure, including encouraging women to get a regular mammography screening.

A very good friend of mine (and probably the funniest woman I know) found out on the 13th of September that she has breast cancer.  She is scheduled for a double mastectomy on Thursday.  Instead of being sad and dwelling on the negative----she has decided to be optimistic and celebrate her strength to fight this battle.  I made this card for her and hope she knows I keep her in my thoughts constantly.
