Default Hey Brenda!

Ah, I understand and I have tissues everywhere just in case. You will be a little better over time. My Mom, my Aunt and two sisters have had breast cancer. Things went well for all til we lost my sister last October. That's where those tissues come in handy. Hang with us. We will inspire and make you laugh as we make wonderful greetings for those in treatment. It's a great place to be in October. Take care and I can't wait to see what you've created. Hugs...

I love the concept of HYCCT, and am participating for the first time. I've done the first four projects and uploaded them. It's just that awareness is still surprisingly tender. Of course, everyone's been touched by cancer. In the past ten years, I've lost a sister, cousin, a very good friend, two classmates, a pastor, and a pastor's husband to cancer. Two other good friends are now battling the disease.

Nine years ago, shortly after my sister died, I was diagnosed with early stage breast cancer. I've been SO blessed that it was found so early, contained and treated successfully. However, every mammogram, every Relay for Life, whatever, still brings tears. Mostly gratitude, but also grief.

So. I keep a box of tissue close to the crafting space, and please forgive an occasional drip.
