Over the past two decades, I have held a variety of fundraising events, selling my fine artwork and jewelry to benefit Hospice and a number of Breast Cancer Charities. Being such an important cause, I believe that offering support is crucial to finding a cure. I’ve now added Ovarian Cancer and Lung Cancer Charities to my list of recipients since I’ve known a few people who have sadly left this earth.
My Mom, Elizabeth or “Betty”, as her friends called her, succumbed to breast cancer more than two decades ago. She was a strong person, however, she suffered a long and arduous battle. But now, she is at peace. Recently, I learned that my mom’s sister, Pat, was also diagnosed with breast cancer. Since then, I have learned of friends and others who have also suffered through Breast, Ovarian, and Lung Cancer.
