{Breast Cancer Awareness- Home Decor}


Sooo.....I found this pink beauty as soon as I walked in the door at Michaels. My goal was to find a pumpkin and paint it pink myself, but when I saw this (and noticed it was marked half off) I had to buy it. There's a scratch at the top from where my son dropped it once we made it in the house, but other than that its still in perfect condition. Even though I have this now, I still would like to paint a pumpkin--just to see how the process works. Anyways, today's post is the last post in tribute to Breast Cancer Awareness.

{Breast Cancer Q & A}
per Susan G. Komen website

Are young women at risk for breast cancer?

Breast cancer is not common among young women. In the United States, fewer than five percent of all breast cancer cases occur in women under 40.


{How can I Help?}

Someone you care about has breast cancer. In our book, that makes you a “co-survivor.” And whether you’re a friend, co-worker, family member or spouse, you have a very important role to play.

Co-survivors provide much-needed emotional support such as listening, giving a hug or just being there. Some offer informational support like gathering data or the latest news on breast cancer. And others give practical help like driving to and from doctor appointments, cooking, cleaning, grocery shopping and child care. All together, this is called “social support” and it makes survivors feel loved, cared for and understood.
