Breast Cancer Awareness Month

As many of you know, October is "Breast Cancer Awareness Month". I was approached this summer by Carole Trone, co-founder of an organization called "Crickett's Answer for Cancer", to decorate a lunch box tin & mini-album with the theme of "hope" in the traditional breast cancer awareness color of pink. I was happy to do this for her organization.

Here is an exerpt from the Mission Statement of the organization:

Crickett’s Answer for Cancer is a nonprofit corporation formed in memory of Crickett Julius, who passed away in October of 2006, 4 months after being diagnosed with metastatic breast cancer at the age of 39. Her family created Crickett’s Answer for Cancer to ensure that women with breast cancer have access to wigs, mastectomy products, facials, and other pampering services, as a way to feel feminine and beautiful despite losing their hair and/or breasts.

This item will be added to the already large inventory of hand crafted items available for purchase through their charity website.
