Heart SPECIAL OCTOBER BREAST CANCER AWARENESS ~ HOPE YOU CAN CLING TO DESTINATION!

OCTOBER BREAST CANCER AWARENESS MONTH
SPECIAL TEAPOT TUESDAY DESTINATION STATION

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month and every year SCS does a wonderful job of doing their part to bring awareness and support to many. Throughout the entire month there are special challenges being hosted each day and the cards that result from those challenges are sent to the MD Anderson Cancer Center to be used in encouraging breast cancer patients and their families!

SCS makes this a fun month. They reward those who participate in the challenges with the chance to win wonderful amazing prizes! You can find information about these challenges here. And you can find information about the prizes here.

Fellow Teapotter Teresa (va.sunshine) is hosting a challenge on the 12th of October. As a second part to her challenge she is also challenging SCS members to support a fellow SCSer who is battling breast cancer for the second time. Teresa will be challenging participants to make a card for MD Anderson for the main challenge and to make a second card for fellow SCSer/Teapotter Jackie (m&m'sgrandma).

Just about one year ago, Jackie was the destination of Teapot Tuesday #162. Jackie fought her battle and we all celebrated her return to the Teapot Tuesday challenges/galleries after a clean bill of health. Sadly, a year later her breast cancer has returned and she is too weak to make cards once again.

Here is the original Teapot Tuesday Destination Thread complete with Jackie's address and here is the original request for cards with updates posted by her daughter Trina (mnfroggie) another fellow SCSer/Teapotter.

If you find yourself unable to make a second card for Jackie, please keep her in your thoughts and prayers on this 12th day of October as today Jackie's long awaited appointment with the onocologist happens and her journey battling cancer once again begins.

************************************************** ********


IMPORTANT NOTE!!

In order to be eligible for prizes upload the card you made for the main challenge using the instructions and keywords listed above.

The second part of the challenge, a card for Jackie, is completely 100% voluntary. If you chose to only make a card for Jackie and not the main challenge, you will not be eligible for prizes.

Here's an idea! Make two of the same card! One for MD Anderson and one for Jackie! How cool is that?
