PINK OCTOBER...

October is Breast Cancer Awareness month...many of us have been affected by this disease losing loved ones and/or friends or watching them bravely battle it. This month along with other members of Make Mine Pink the Scented Cottage will donate a portion of all sales to help fight and find a cure.

If you would like to leave a message with the name or names of women you have known and

loved or that you know who are battling this disease, I will send my donation in with all the names listed in honor of them to the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation.
Thank-you.

My wish for you and me: May we find a cure soon and may those we know and love never go through this battle.

What a wonderful post Francie! My cousin had breast cancer ,but is now is remission. And I had a sister who is no longer with us due to cancer. So this touches my heart. I truly hope that someday we find a cure.

As a 2 year breast cancer survivor, I cannot tell you how touched I am that you and others are doing this. I found you through the french garden house and my heart is just bursting that other people will do these kinds of things. Bless you for your kindness and your generosity.
