As most of us know, October is Breast Cancer Awareness month.  Most of us also know someone whose life has been touched by breast cancer, be it friend or family or yourself.  I see it almost on a daily basis, as I work in a Gynecology office. 

With that in mind, I am giving away a Pink Journey Solutions cartridge!  This cartridge is a highly sought after cartridge that is usually only available with the fabulous pink Cricut Imagination .  This week you have a chance to win it!

All you have to do is be a follower and leave a comment on this post telling me if and how breast cancer has touched your life. 

Have a great weekend!  Commenting will be open until midnight EST 10/23/10.  Stop back on 10/24/10 to see if you won! Pin It

  1. Personally I have two englarged lymphnodes which have to be mamogrammed every 6 months to make sure they aren't getting bigger. Not breast cancer they tell me, but it's a bit unnerving.

    Creatively, I'm a follower of Monique Griffith and a big fan of her creative style. Although I don't know her personally, I was shocked she has this. So I try to send her a card or two a week, except the last card I sent I had worked on off and on for about 3 weeks. It was an intricate card (for me) and used LOTS of materials. It took me 2 weeks to find the Martha Stewart foil. I'm trying to finish writing up the instructions for it so I can post it today.

  2. This card is just beautiful! Thank you for the opportunity to win this cartridge. I already currently go for yearly mammograms in the hope to prevent this from ever touching my life personally. Although I have lost a cousin to this and know if several blogging friends who are fighting this. Thank you again.

  3. I have a lump which is benign and I need to go for another mammo in December... Dr. is monitoring very closely for any changes. My mother-in-law had some pre-cancer removed a couple of years ago. Just this week she went in for a biopsy...she gets her results on Monday..praying it's benign...always praying for cure.

  5. Your card is so beautiful and uplifting.

    Cancer has touched our lives in so many ways. We lost a dear BIL at the very young age of 40 twelve years ago to brain cancer and we currently have a 36 year old cousin with 3 beautiful children fighting the fight of her life against breast cancer. We pray every single day that she is going to beat this.

    Thank you so much for the chance to win this cartridge. I would love to have it to create some things for Krista. Have a blessed day.

  6. I have been lucky not to lose anyone to breast cancer, but I have lost many due to cancer in general. I have friends now that are battling the big fight and some that have beat it.

  7. I am thankful to say that I do not have it, but one of my closest friend in high school's mom got it and I am proud to say she is a survivor.

    Great card. I'm loving all the butterflies! :)

    Thanks for the chance to win the Pink Journey Cart! :)

  9. How cute and sweet ur little fairy is. I haven't personally been affected by breast cancer, but many in my family have had other forms of cancer.

  10. Adorable card! I have a fairly young family so aside from my great aunt and great grandmother having breast cancer I have not had to experience it on a more personal level. I have had other forms of cancer in my more immediate family so I know how hard any form of cancer is on the patient and the family.

  11. This is my first time to visit your blog...I will be back! Your work is beautiful and your give away is very generous. My Mama had a breast removed dure to cancer 15 years ago. She made me promise then to always get a yearly mammogram which I have. Just had my own scare a month ago when a mass could not be aspirated. I had to have a surgical removal, but all is well and God is good...no cancer!

  12. Thanks so much for the give away!!

    Unfortunately my Mom lost her battle with breast cancer 20 years ago, this year. I was 19 when she passed.

  13. My aunt had breast cancer. She had a double mastectomy and reconstructive surgery. She is fine now. Being with her going through all of this made me realize how strong a woman can be when the chips are down. She was a trooper. And it made me more vigilant in self exams and stressing that to my daughters!

    I think breast cancer has touched everyone--because it so frequent. I've had friends who've had it. It's amazing how brave women (and some men) need to be to survive it! Thanks so much for this lovely giveaway!

  17. I love your card... tfs. I had been really affected by Breast Cancer in high school. I was on the softball team and we were all very close (especially with our coach). One day she got on the bus before an away game and told us all that she had been diagnosed with breast cancer and our determination to play was inspiring her to have the determination to defeat breast cancer. Everyone on the bus was pretty touched.. we all cried and we were all very supportive of our coach.. who won the battle! Thanks for the chance to win, this giveaway is so nice of you.

  18. Beautiful card! My mom is a breast cancer survivor of over 9 years. She is my best friend and a wonderful woman. I also have a dear friend who was diagnosed just under a year ago. For some reason she decided to get a mammogram at 39 years old, and we are all so thankful she did because she was diagnosed with breast cancer. If she would have waited one more year, she might not be with us today. My mom's cancer NEVER showed up on a mammogram, so it is so important to do a self exam monthly!

  21. This car dis gorgeous, just like the other 2. I love fairies and have a fairy tattoo on my back.

    My great grandmother actually passed away from breast cancer, my mother has been tested numerous times as she has found lumps in both breasts, knock on wood it has been nothing. My aunt (mom's sister) had to have a lump removed from her breast about 4 or 5 years ago and my 21 year old sister has a large tennis ball size lump in her breast which they are testing. This is the same sister that at 15 was diagnosed with Tyroid cancer. We are hoping it is nothing and can be removed.
    Breast cancer is horrible, for all involved. I really hope that they find a cure so we never have to worry about this horrible disease.

    thank you all for sharing your stories. <3

  22. Thanks for the giveaway! I don't personally know anyone that has been affected by breast cancer but I still send in my pink yogurt lids to help with the donation for research. My thoughts and prayers go out to those that have had to deal with this disease.

  23. A dear friend (the one who introduced me to Creative Memories & scrapbooking) had a double mastectomy a year ago. She continues to have surgeries & battle the disease. She is a young, vibrant woman & is giving it all she's got. 20 years ago I lost a 4 year old nephew to brain cancer. It still hurts like it was yesterday. This disease is awful.

    As for how breast cancer has touched my life-
    Unfortunately it runs in the family and currently have three aunts with breast cancer. I do get yearly checkups(YAY! so far free and clear) and just pray and hope my two girls (12&14) never have to deal with breast cancer. That they will find a cure soon.

  30. Just love your fairy cards. They are so adorable! Cancer hit close to home 2 years ago. A good friend died of it leaving behind a young daughter and son. And last year a moms club member's mom had both breasts removed because of lumps found. Every year a group of us walk/run in a Susan B Koman marathon in their memory.

  31. Thanks for a change to win this wonderful Pink ribbon cart. How has breast cancer touched my life, in many ways. I have had family members and a very dear friend that had breast cancer. I watch them fight to beat this monster every step of the way, went through the ups and downs with them,cried and laughed and was there just to hold them when they need a big hug. This has taught me to charise everyminute that I have with all my family and friends and do not sweat over the little things. Life can sometimes be to short, so live it to you fullest.

  32. Thank you for the opportunity to twin the Pink Journey's cart. I have really wanted it for a long time. My 28 year old cousin was diagnosed with breast cancer two years ago. It came as quite a shock since she was so young! It made all of us very aware of the seriousness of the disease. We all rallied around her and supported her in our pink. We all had early mammograms and still do.
    Have a great day!

  33. I love the face on this fairy card!
    I had to have mammograms every six months when I turned 40 to determine what was "normal" for me. It was scary because I had an aunt die of breast cancer many years ago before they knew how to treat it.

A teacher at my childrens school had it and was successful in her fight against it. it has raised my daughters awareness and although she is still very young she is aware that when we sponsor or donate that we are fighting for a cure that she may one day need

  45. I've lost several family members (both mine & my husband's) to cancer - none were breast cancer that I'm aware of. I do have a very dear friend who, years before I met her, had fought 2 very tough battles with cancer; she had a mastectomy during the 1st fight (her best option of surviving) and about 5 years later, was diagnosed with cancer in her remaining breast; again, she chose to have the radical mastectomy to increase her chances of survival. Even though she went through all this before I met her, I am so proud of her for how she handled things & how positive she is about everything...her story of not only surviving, but thriving, is important to me because she is the only person that I've known (personally) that has survived cancer. It reminds me that not every one dies from cancer. I have had 2 very serious scares with breast cancer myself so I make sure to have my annual mammogram...as a matter of fact, I have my appt on Tuesday. Hopefully, the day will come when there will be a cure for this disease that has affected so many families!!

  59. My mom was diagnosed with breast cancer right after my first child was born. It was a very agressive form and was only found because my 2 yr old niece had hit my mom's breast with her head while playing around. After a masectomy, chemo, and radiation therapy my mom was told all the cancer is gone. Praise God!! It was a very rough emotional journey but we as a family held her hand and took it one day at a time.

    It seems that I've been surrounded by cancer of all kinds. In the past 18 months I was diagnosed with kidney cancer, right after a good friend was diagnosed with colon cancer. A few months later I had another good friend diagnosed with breast cancer and then my best friends husband was diagnosed with lymphoma.

    My best friends mother died from breast cancer 8 years ago. She was one of the best people I ever knew.

I wore my 'walk' t-shirt to work and daycare the day before to bring awareness. I had to of the ladies at daycare let me know they are survivors and they let me know how much it meant to them that I would wear the shirt and do the walk in support of those who have been touched. Thank you for also bringing awareness in your blog. I can only hope SOON there is a cure!

  83. I am a clinical research nurse working in oncology. I have many women on my breast cancer study. These women are brave and I am honored to work with them. I see what these women go through every day. We have a survivor wall that we hang the pictures of all the women who are fighting. I use my cricut to decorate this wall. (I could sure use this cartridge to decorate it)

    When the women complete their treatment we give them a picture of the staff to remember us- because we hope to never see them again.

    The research I work on will hopeful diagnose breast cancer early and treat it with fewer complications than currently available therapies. The other goal is to keep it from coming back.

  88. My nephews wife found out she had breast cancer in her 30's - with 2 young children in school. She had treatment and thought she had it whipped but a few months later the cancer was back. The local doctors said the cancer was spreading fast and there was little they could do. She went to Duke and with a bone marrow transplant they still only gave her a 5 - 10% chance of surviving for a short while longer. She had the transplant and has been cancer free for many years. She has saw her children graduate from high school - then college. She has seen them married and has seen three grandchildren born. So no matter how bad it seems never give up hope.

  89. Thankfully, I have never known anyone personally who has had breast cancer! My sister's friend,who is now only 30, has already been through it, which is really scary for me. It can hit women at any age!

  97. Ooh, lovely layout. Love the butterfly. My mother-in-law had a battle with breast cancer. She had a masectomy, and did not need to do chemo or radiation. She came through it very well, which was very soon after her husband passed away. She passed away this April, after a massive heart attack. I really miss her. Someday, I would like to get this cartridge and make some layouts and projects with it. It would make me feel like it is something for her, and make me feel closer to her, even though she is gone. Thanks for the opportunity for someone to win this cartridge.

  98. I lost my grandmother to breast cancer when I was just 7 yrs old. That was 40+ years ago. Two cousins on the same side of the family have been battling it - one sadly just lost her fight three months ago. Every year I participate in raising money for the Race for the Cure - if we keep marching forward we will beat this terible disease.

  99. Oh how sweet. My family has seen two women with breast cancer. My mother and my aunt; who is my mother's baby sister. So cancer has been a big part of our family. Father had cancer, mother in law had cancer. A battle this family has fought for years mother and aunt won. Dad and mother in law lost! Jackie jacthom@verizon.net

  100. Wow! I love your work.

    I am a 12 year breast cancer survivor. I was the 11 person in my famiy to be diagnosed with it and the first one to survive. Since my diagnoses, eight more in my family have been diagnosed. This year I am doing the Komen 3day walk in Dallas. I will walk 60 miles in a tutu that is decorated with ribbons with the names of people that have had breast cancer

  101. The cards are beautiful.
    My Grandmother and Great-Aunt both had breast cancer. Both of them survived and joked about their posthesis boobs. My Grandma used to pull hers out and throw it at you and tell us "stop being such a boob!" Freaked me out the first time she did it, but made us laugh EVERY time she did it! Plus the added benefit of getting her point across!!!

    Thanks for the chance to win the cart. I would make a layout thanking God that I had my Grandma so long after BC.

  103. Beautiful card! I lost my sweet cousin 2 1/2 years ago to breast cancer. She fought a long battle with it, for 8 years, and left behind an amazing husband and 3 kids (ages 9, 12, and 15). I was lucky to have her as a big part of my life when she was here - we taught together and shared child care, and she had the biggest heart you can imagine. Miss you, Mary!

  104. Breast cancer has not affected me personally but my sister did have it years ago so I am considered high risk.She has since passed but not from breast cancer but bowel cancer.She lived with us for the last 2 months & there is nothing so great as to care for your older sister when she needs you.Certainly builds a very strong bond.

  106. I LOVE your card! I am going to walk in the 60 mile 3-Day For The CUre here in the Twin CIties for the first time in Aug 2011. I don't know anybody personally who has/had breast cancer but, I lost my grandma (my best friend) and she had cancer. Whenever I see the commercials I think of my daughter and how nice it would be to have a cure for breast cancer before I get older to ensure that I can be here with her into my old age and so that she won't have to worry about it when she gets older! One of the most disconcerting tidbits I saw on the Susan Komen website was that the 2 biggest risk factors for breast cancer are: being female and growing older. Can't escape either so, I better try to be part of the change I guess! Thanks so much for another shot at winning this cart! I am excited all over again! Good luck to everyone! :)

  108. I lost my Aunt Elaine to breast cancer when I was a teenager. She left behind three children, the youngest was eight. This was in the late 70's and she had found something, but didn't have it checked right away. By the time she did, it was too far gone. She is greatly missed. My other Aunt is a breast cancer survivor. She is one of the strongest women I know. Don't let fear, being busy, not having insurance or any reason keep you from checking out something unusual.

  110. Hi first of all I would like to say what a great giveaway ! I have wanted this cart for a long time but it was always way of the price range if you even found it on Ebay !
    I have been touched by Breast Cancer we lost my Mother-in-law fours years ago Oct 5 of this year ! She was such a blessing in life and everyone loved and adored her ! October is such a big awareness of Breast Cancer for our family because she actually died in October ! But not only for her but her Mom died of Breast Cancer in Oct of 2001 ! My Mother-in-law was actually battleing unknowingly with it herself as she was caring for her mom ! So Breast Cancer is a big deal for us ! To win this cart would mean the world to me ! I have been wanting to make a mini album of her for my hubby and our anniversary is in Nov so this would be perfect timing to make him a album for his mom ! Thanks for the chance to win !
    HUGD, JANIE

    I have lost many loved ones to cancer and was consider a cancer survivor myself - until I went to give blood and they needed the pathology report to verify if I could even give blood. To my horror and disbelief I found out the "Specialist" lied and performed an un-necessary surgery. I went to my family doctor who referred this "Specialist" and his comment - "How wonderful, you didn't have cancer". To late to save any chance of children. So, this sad tale is to prompt everyone to get a third and fourth opinion - not all doctors are creditable or even know what they are doing. Please don't take the first or second decision - keep searching - keep your faith!

  119. Sweet card, thank you for sharing. My life has been louched by this thru my mother and my aunt whom are both survivors. I thank God for this everyday and continue to pray for a cure.

Her wish.. as seeing that she may not have long.. but the doctor and I have been invited to go.. expenses paid because she would need medical personnel to be with her on this trip just to make sure everything goes okay.. the trip is set for Friday, but honestly I don't think it's going to happen... My Think Pink layout for the circle blog was done in dedication to her!

  127. Breast Cancer has touched me personally. This January it will have been 7 years from my lumpectomy. I found my tumor while I was pregnant with my second child. I was scared to death. A month after he was born I had it removed. It was a whirlwind of a time. I am so thankful to be here with my family every day. Life is fragile and can change at any time.

  130. Thanks so much for this giveaway. Beautiful cards.
    I had a scare last year where for the previous year and a half, I was getting ultrasounds every 6 month because they were concerned with an area in my breast. It was very fiberous. I finally had a biopsy last June to check it after 2 years of procedures. Luckily it came back negative for breast cancer. I am still concerned when I get mammograms, it scared me pretty good. I have a scar from the procedure, and I jokingly refer to it as Frankin Boobie. My Best friend from high school had to have a double mastectomy, and a real good friend of my mom's died from the disease. She battled it for 7 years.

  152. Beautiful card. Breast Cancer was a topic in my household for a long time. Growing up my best friend Toni's mother found out she had breast cancer while we were in the 6th grade. It was already pretty serious and we did realize at first how serious. Untill the bad stages came up real quick. I remeber Toni getting called out of class. I was so woried. later that day I found out that she past away. She was so strong and tried to hide all the terrible moment from us kids. It took along time to truely understand everything about breast cancer for me. I quickly learned as cancer has hit every woman on my side of the family. So for me its still bring up some rough moments but also brings us some proud moments for all the people who have survived.

  156. This is just so wonderful of you to offer up Pink Journey during this special month. I lost a good friend last year to this terrible disease. She worked at our local Breast Center so she really could not have been more diligent. Her youngest son was 18 at the time of her passing. She had beat it the year before and it came back. She was able to see all his football games and the entire high school team wore pink t-shirts under their jerseys all season. They wore these to her service as well. She got to see her son graduate high school, attend prom and get his college acceptance letter. By fall, she did not get to take him to the dorm. We used to go to their house every Monday for Monday Night Tacos and watch the football game. So her service was a big party with many of us making tacos for the swarm of people that attended. Her daughter who is the same age as our daughter, 29 took my breath away and caused the tears to fall as she told her 9 year old niece that she had her grandma for 9 years and that her boys probably won't remember her because they are under 2. It is up to her to tell them the stories of what a good grandma they had.

  160. My manager went through a horrible ordeal with breast cancel a few years back & this year I had a scare that sent me straight to the DR and to a mamogram from there. She was with me 100% of the way. (She made me go to the DR.). She has always been someone I look up to. It turned out to be benign and nothing to worry about, Not much I could do to thank her but make her a pack of cards and put them in a set for her to use at a later time personalizing the bag I put them in.
    Beautiful card and I wish I could make her cards like this as I know she would love them even more.

    Breast cancer runs in my family. My grandmother had a double mastectomy. I also had a cousin (who was in her 20's at the time) is a breast cancer survivor.

    One of our family's close friend's daughter is a breast cancer survivor. She is in her mid 30's and just had a double mastectomy two months ago. She is doing well but is suffering a little depression.

    Breast cancer affects us all on some level.

  169. Such a sweet card. Thanks for sharing. My daughter recently discovered a lump and we were so scared, we had it removed and thankfully it was benign. We have not had a scare like that since my grandmother passed away. Since she was very old (92) the doctors didn't think she would manage surgery to remove her cancer. It is so sad that doctors can't find a cure swiftly enough for those younger...Thanks for your inspiration.

    As for the breast cancer I lost my grandmother to it way back in 1985 when there were no mamogrammes being done and of course it then spread to other parts of her body but she was a fighter she survived 6 years from diagnosis with only minimal treatment. Thank you for the chance to win.

  186. Thanks for the chance to win....became a follower too! :-)

    My grandma had breast cancer and survived after having her breast removed. It was heart breaking....I was still very young when it happened and took it really hard. She died 6 years ago with oral cancer! A person should NEVER have to fight cancer twice in a life time! Sigh!

She died on my hubby birthday and we put here to rest on our anniversary. Such a depressing month. Thanks for the chance to win the cartridge. I am a follower and I have posted this on my sidebar.

  189. My Grandmother died of Breast Cancer. I remember staying with her while I was in high school and she was fighting the disease. It inspired me to become a nurse, so that I could help those in need. Thanks for supporting this great cause.

  194. I've been getting checked since I was in my 30's since it runs in our family so I've not had any scares but have had a few friends that have had to deal with it and that is a very scary thing, I just try and be there for them. Thanks for the chance at this sought after cart.

  195. Wow such a great giveaway, thanks for the chance! I love what this cartridge stands for. I've been eyeing the cartridge and the pink cricut for a long time, but unfortunately cant afford it. Breast cancer became a part of my life when one of my sorority pledge sisters found lumps in her breast at the age of 23 and discovered it was a return of the cancer she had battled and beat at the age of 19. Sadly she is no longer with us, more of her story is posted on my blog, she is such an inspiration to me and never gave up her fight. Always remember and miss you Alicia.
