October is National breast Cancer Awareness Month. Here at Homespun Hearth, we are eager and willing to spread the word, reach out to our customers and blog readers to get them to take the step of having a preventative mammogram.
“The National Breast Cancer Foundation (NBCF) mission is to save the lives by increasing awareness of breast cancer through education and by providing mammograms for those in need.”
All of us have been touched by this disease. My own mother-in-law succumbed to the disease in 2002 A day doesn’t pass when I don’t think of her and miss her in my life. She was a sewer, nanny, friend, gardener and perfectionist. I remember when she sewed our flower girl dress for my niece and the way she worked to make it “perfect”.
I think she would be very happy that I get to work in the sewing field with Teresa and Julie at Homespun Hearth. Here we are surrounded with women who love and foster creativity. What more could you ask for?
So, take a minute and maybe create a throw, quilt or tote for someone you love who is fighting this disease. Many companies have generously donated funds from product sales to help with the cause.
We, at Homespun Hearth, carry some fabrics an tools that support awareness. We also have just the right pink fabrics to create the perfect gift to brighten a cancer patient’s life. If you don’t personally know someone dealing with this disease consider yourself blessed. But also consider making a donation to your local cancer center to show your love and support.
