Challenge Title: Looking in on You!
Hostess: TexasGrammy ... a.k.a. Bev
Keyword: HYCCT1106
Date: Thursday, October 6th, 2010

"Looking in on You!" is something we've all done when checking on someone who is battling disease ... from temporary sickness all the way to the battle of a lifetime, cancer. Whether we "look in" on someone down the street, or across the country, supporting our sisters in their battle is all-important. Our visits, phone calls, prayers, flowers, and heartfelt handmade cards are all a part of their total care package.

Let's look in on them with a window card! Now of course, PINK on your window card would be a great touch, but if you're running out of pink ... it's not mandatory at all. This one is all about "looking in" on our sisters.

My same-age cousin is currently battling breast cancer for the 2nd time ... on the "other" side this time. Her maternal grandmother, mother, 2 maternal aunts and one of those aunt's daughters have all battled breast cancer and survived! In the case of those who have passed on before us, cancer was 'not' involved in their passing. Moral of this story? FIGHT LIKE A GIRL! We can beat this!
