Let’s face it, cancer totally stinks! My mom fought breast cancer (which spread to her bones then liver) over 4 years and lost her battle August 16th, 2012. She was an amazing woman! I also have an amazing friend, Cassie, who is currently fighting (she’s only 35!) breast cancer. She is a talented photographer and I highly recommend seeing her work HERE :)
I am so excited to share this post brought to you by Heidi over at SaveMoreSpendLess
My sister-in-law Amanda S.’ mom Carmel has Hodgkins Lymphoma Cancer and we are trying to brighten her day by getting her a few things. She is currently under going chemotherapy which has caused her to loose her hair so we are looking for caps, scarves, things that are cute to cover her head. Along the way we found some different things as well so we posted those as well
I know that there are millions of Americans suffering from this disease and every little bit helps them in their time of need. If you can help, have a contact I don’t have listed or just want to send a card to Carmel please send me an email at smslwithheidi(at)gmail(dot)com.
