October – We all know its breast cancer awareness month. My Nana fought breast cancer twice. Ultimately it was cancer that took her away from me, but she kicked its ass for over 14 years. She’s been gone 10 years now… and I still miss her every day. This month in her honor, I wear pink!
My Nana taught me so many things… my crafty/creative side comes from her. She taught me the value of making things by hand, the time, effort and love that goes into each piece. She taught me to be strong, even when its the very last thing you want to do. She taught me that family is important. She taught me to go after my dreams, to fight for love, and to never settle for anything less than the stars.
I’m planning on wearing pink every day in October to honor her memory. To help find a cure 50% of all sales in my shop will be going to cancer research.
Today its Pink nails (and a pink bra 🙂 but don’t worry, I won’t show you that) Follow and play along at the #pinkeverydayinoctober hashtag 🙂
Are you doing anything to raise awareness this month?
