Tuesday, November 1, 2011
For those of you who didn’t know, October is not just about Halloween (though kiddos in costume are pretty cute). It is also Breast Cancer awareness month. Sadly, I don’t know anyone whose lives have not been touched in one way or another by Cancer. So I was happy to contribute when asked to create something for 20 Breast Cancer Survivors as part of Breast Cancer 2011: Love, Hope & Perseverance charity events. They were looking for something unique to give 20 honored recipients and I wanted to makes sure it was extra special.
I thought long and hard as to what would be something to which these Honorees would treasure for years to come. One thing which was important to me was to make something which could be used to capture their story and their future. This small memoir book will not only allow them to journal their stories but serve as a reminder of their perseverance. The word chosen for this book signifies our inmost desire which rings in the heart of all who have been touched by this disease. Each page is colored in a shade of Pink as a show of support for the cause and adorned with small sections for writing out thoughts and feelings or to add a photo or memento. I hope each Breast Cancer Survivor Winner enjoy this small token of my love and respect.
