Save The Ta-Tas!

"November 22, 2010 – I was working at the Roseville office of RE/MAX Gold when I received a call from Dr. Oide. He identified himself and when I asked him how he was he said, “Oh I’m so sorry to tell you that the biopsy has confirmed that it is breast cancer.” I was in shock. I knew that it certainly was a possibility but was hoping not. The tears began to flow... 

November 29, 2010 – We met with (surgeon) Dr. Thomas Dugoni at 2:30pm. The options for treatment were presented to me (and Jon who is such a support). After hearing what he had to say I felt like a mastectomy was the best option for me...

December 7, 2010 – My surgery was scheduled for 7:00am. I was the first one of the day. I had not slept very well the night before. I was feeling pretty anxious... I felt so nervous as we were walking from the elevator down the hall toward the surgery center... I felt like a lamb going to slaughter...The next thing I knew I was waking up. I was in the same spot so wasn’t sure that I had even gone to surgery yet until I looked down and saw the bandage. I felt so sad and just cried and cried...

February, 2010 – It is getting better each day. I am alive and cancer free and feeling very blessed!! Jon reminds me all the time that I am the love of his life, and that all he wants is for me to be alive and well. Oh, how I love that man of mine!!"

My Aunt Shauna and Uncle Jon
This is the journal of my beautiful Aunt Shauna as she began her battle with breast cancer throughout this last year. Her honest words unveil the reality of the frightening illness that plagues so many women throughout the world. Imagine walking into your visit with the doctor to hear the confirmation of your worst fear...

"You have breast cancer". 

Many of you have personally battled this demon. Many of you have dear family members and friends who are currently fighting, or have lived through the pain of breast cancer. Many of you have lost your companion, mother, sister, daughter, aunt, cousin, best friend to breast cancer.

 October is Breast Cancer Awareness month. I have felt a very strong impression to do something to make a difference in the world this year, specifically in the fight against breast cancer, as many of my own family members are currently fighting. 

I need your help.

In an effort to raise funds to donate to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation, I have created the limited edition "Hope" necklace for my jewelry line, Sprightly So. The necklace is selling for $20, and 50% of the profits will be donated to BCRF. 

(Please visit my shop to order.)

It is my goal to raise at least $100. This money will help support research for a cure and spread awareness about breast cancer. 

Please help me in this mission. Let your friends and family know. If you are a blogger, please grab my button below to promote on your blog! Help save the lives of the amazing women you love in your life, and potentially your own beautiful life 

Sprightly So

Wow...what a powerful post. I love that you mix fashion with your other passions. It's a gorgeous necklace and I'm glad your Aunt is doing well. Sorry you had to go through something so hard. I don't have a paypal...do I need to set one up to pay? The necklace is gorgeous.
