These statistics came from www.breastcancer.org

Thanks for joining us as we pay our respects to all that are fighting like a girl, to all that have fought and survived.

You should of arrived from Jens Digi Stamps blog, if not please do as you will not want to miss any of the amazing projects we are sharing with you today.

I have two cards to share with you today, 
My first card is in honor of my 37 year old daughter who was diagnosis with aggressive Breast Cancer at the young age of 31 years old. 
A single mother to two young boys, that courageously fought this battle
as any girl would.


In honor of her 6 year anniversary of being Cancer Free just last week
I made this card just for her.



She is very proud to show off her "girls" as she calls them after going through many surgeries 
to replace her breast that were removed. She proudly wears a shirt 
that reads "Yes they are Fake- My real ones tried to kill me"
hence my sentiment for my card!


Here is the inside of the card


For all of you ladies and gentlemen who are fighting the fight
Never give up on HOPE, until there is a cure keeping fighting your fight!!


Both images can be found in Jens Digi Stamp shop

Congrats to your daughter and to your beautiful card you made for here. Also love the other card with the cancer ribbon as the butterfly body. This blog hop is awesome and emotional as everyone has been affected by cancer one way or another. Lost my mom 14 years ago and miss her. My friend at work just finished her last radiation treatment last week and is looking forward to her reconstruction surgery. TFS
TTFN.
