Great challenge! Going to go get bfast started and think on this one! Kind of leaning towards the black.

Great challenge today, Misti! Thank you so much for hosting! I loved this idea! Here's my card!

Each Day is a Gift

Love this, Misti!

I didn't realize there were so many colors representing the different cancers! I chose orange for kidney cancer since my SIL lost a kidney this summer to the dreaded disease. She is doing well, and I am thankful for the improvements in medicine and surgeries today! HYCCT1306 Because I Care by muscrat - Cards and Paper Crafts at Splitcoaststampers

muzbysmom 10-06-2013 05:28 AM

I fortunately know no one going through a cancer struggle at this time! I do have a girlfriend who's in remission from Breast Cancer and my mother passed away years ago from an inoperable cancerous lung tumor. Guess I'll go look up the colors for those.....

I didn't either until a couple of years ago & our church had us wear a color representing cancer & gave a whole long list.

HYCCT1306 W is for Wonderful
 
This card is in tribute to the members of our extended family who have died from colon cancer (blue), ovarian cancer (teal), testicular cancer (lilac)and breast cancer (pink). I am very thankful for the treatments and research being done to stamp out cancers, and both my children are planning to be doctors. Here's W is for Wonderful

LuvLee 10-06-2013 07:49 AM

I was also amazed....and so sad too....by all the colors and types of cancers! I chose teal and pink which is for the type of breast cancer that is genetic/inherited.

Really a GREAT CHALLENGE, Misti. I did a card in memory of my mother.

REMEMBERING

Crafty Math Chick 10-06-2013 08:30 AM

I love this challenge Misti - I am sure there are lots of other patients at that hospital suffering from other kinds of cancers and their families appreciate the support too! <3

This challenge means a lot to me. I lost two friends to pancreatic cancer within the past year. I miss them every day.

Dream of a Cure

Ksnurse 10-06-2013 11:39 AM

Great challenge Misti....I used lavender as I've had many family members with many different types of cancer....

I am also surprised by the numerous colors for the various types of cancer. It will be difficult to make a decision as I know several people actively dealing with cancer now. A friend just had surgery for colon cancer, one is getting treatments for lymphoma, several have breast cancer, and my deceased brother had esophageal cancer.

I've been to church, two S.S. classes, and had lunch. It is now time for a nap. I'll "sleep" on this and make a card later.

My burgundy hydrangeas were stamped to honor my mother-in-law who passed from multiple myeloma.

So Loved

mrslaird 10-06-2013 12:10 PM

Here's mine! I used two for cancers we've lost close loved ones to, ovarian and lung cancer, and one that I blissfully have not encountered personally - childhood cancer - but I recently read an article about how little awareness it has.

I'd like to make some cards for cancers that our extended family has survived - bladder, breast, melanoma, prostate, etc - but that will have to be later in the month! :)

Thanks for the great challenge, Misti!

Dockside 10-06-2013 12:47 PM

Teal for Ovarian
 
Here is my card featuring teal for ovarian cancer. Quite a rainbow for this miserable disease!

Thanks for this challenge Misti. I got to try a new (for me) technique! It looks better IRL, and I'll use this technique again.

Wow Misti, I never knew there were THAT many colors for cancer. I learned something new today. I chose bright blue, the color of colon cancer, as my dear sister-in-law just succumbed from this dreadful disease. Here's my card:
