The Month Of Pink

Sharon's Honor
I know how many of you are honoring Breast Cancer Awareness Month. This is a painting I have done in honor of my cousin Sharon, who fought the disease valiantly for several years. I miss her very much as she and another cousin Judy were and are my mentors.
In the Kansas City area please donate to the Back in the Swing organization. They fund programs to assist those with breast cancer, several organizations and hospitals, including Cancer Action. It is a wonderful center for anyone needing help both in ways both physical and spiritual.

As another whose family has been affected by breast cancer, I want to thank you for reminding people of the importance of the fight for a cure. We must not give up until the fight is won.
