Today's HYCCT challenge is to select a "color of cancer". Cancer's all are designated by color and I chose white to signify lung cancer. My Mother passed away many years ago of an inoperable cancerous lung tumor when she was actually about my age. Talk about scary!

Scary and sad. I am so sorry. You have created a beautiful tribute to her and to all sufferers of this dread disease. Aside from your loss, though, isn't it wonderful how many gains we've made over the years?

So sorry about your dear mom. Let's hope we can learn more about cancer and prevent these losses in the near future. Your white on white tribute to your Mom is very elegant and beautiful. So glad you are able to participate in our HYCCT challenges this month.

Yes ... a scary thought indeed when cancer has reached so very closely into your life. However, your card is truly a wonderful & beautiful tribute to your mother's memory. So glad you shared it with us!
