CCC# 47



This is for challenge # 47 for CCC. It was a card for breast cancer awareness. Use any cartridge and any colors. I hope you play along too.


This was a hard card to do, because last May my mother-in-law was diagnosed with breast cancer. She has multiple sclerosis, so I wondered if she was going to win this battle. She went through chemo and is now almost done with radiation. They had to stop the chemo, because her immune system was not bouncing back from it and she was having complications. Her body is always so frail. The words I used in this card to me describe her determination to over come this awful disease. I wish more people would have her determination. I know for some it is just too late by the time they find out. Some battle it multiple times, only to lose in the end. I wish there was a cure so that so many women and a few men would not lose their lives to this. I wish that those who are suffering would be surrounded by love and comfort. I just wish that no one feel like that have to go through this alone.
