Breast Cancer touches all of us in some way. Though every day calls for awareness, in October we rise together to help promote the breast cancer cause, educate and raise money to fund key breast cancer research.
Each week, we’ll be featuring a CafePress designer’s story about how their lives have been affected by the disease. This week, let’s hear from Marie (hopewearspink):
“I was diagnosed with breast cancer when I was 39 years old. I went through 2 years of surgeries and treatments, and I was so fortunate to be able to have access to the best possible care, giving me a chance to watch my little girls grow up. I am dedicated to making sure that other women have the best care they can get – and to finding a future where my daughters won’t ever have to worry about breast cancer. All of my designs are a reflection of the feelings I went through while going through the whole experience myself, and I always hope that I can offer inspiration or strength through what I have designed to other women who are facing the same thing.”
