Posts Tagged ‘cancer awareness’

Having started making fun crafts for an upcoming craft show in June, we started posting pictures of our projects on Facebook to see what people really responded to and wow…people have been really “liking” our page.  We’ve made baby burp rags and crayon roll ups; but what people are really excited about are our hand-sewn purses, tote bags and diaper bags.  We’ve done theme bags from autism awareness bags, to sock monkeys, to hero firemen purses, breast cancer awareness purses and childhood cancer awareness.  These bags are custom made bow tuck and tote bags…there are so many possibilities to express the owners interests or passions when picking out fabric and colors.   We also make zippered pouches.  These are themes that have meaning to people and they are not only using them for educating others to a cause that is dear to them but also to add a touch of style and personality in what they carry on their shoulder everyday.  If you are interested you can check out our new hobby page on Facebook take a look here;  Its Sew Made .

        Lance Armstrong is a force to be reckoned with; in sports, and in the world of cancer education and fundraising.  He is a world reknown cyclist of the Tour de France fame.  He himself fought his way back from a grim testicular cancer diagnosis. 

         He has celebrated his well-being by committing to the fight against cancer.  His accomplishments in this area are starting to stack up to become a measure by which we can see how far we have come and how much farther we need to go in the fight.  He advocates living strong.

         Since the time of his diagnosis, he has dedicated himself to education, fundraising and empowering those affected by cancer.  Lance Armstrong is the driving force behind the Live Strong movement.  They have set aside May13th, 2008 as Live Strong day; there will be events nationwide in America to raise both funds and awareness.

        If you would like to know more about his foundation, take a look here at:  http://www.livestrong.org/site/c.khLXK1PxHmF/b.2660611/k.BCED/Home.htm

         Lance has recently spoken to the United State’s Senate about the status of the fight against cancer; you can see his speach at:  http://www.c-spanarchives.org/library/index.php?main_page=product_video_info&products_id=205238-1.  Far too many of us have been affected by the disease called cancer… there are over 1,500 deaths a day in America from cancer.  Those numbers need to change for the better. 

         You can keep up with the work of the Lance Armstrong Foundation; and Lance himself as well, by signing up for his blog at: http://livestrongblog.org/.  Lance made an appearance on Good Morning America today to promote the idea of Live Strong. 

          Remember, May 13th as the Live Strong day, make a point to support the work of this fine organization.  Do it for yourself, for those you love, or do it just because it is the right thing to do !
