Free October Silhouette DesignOct 08, 2021
Happy Friday!! Its time for another "Friday Freebie"! This one is special & close to my heart! As I'm sure most of you aware, October is Breast Cancer Awareness month. What you may or may not know, is that I am a 2 times Breast Cancer SurvivorSome BC Survivors don't like this month, or the whole "pink" thing -- they say breast cancer isn't pink - its ugly & messy - and that is true! However, I do think that this month is important and a good thing! I think its an opportunity to encourage women of all ages to check for breast cancer and get their mammograms. I also think it's an opportunity to encourage those who have been diagnosed with breast cancer.
When I was first diagnosed, it was almost 39 years ago - and I was 27 years old and 6 months pregnant. At that time, there was very little (if any) encouraging stories & information out there! Everything was depressing. The 2nd time I went though this was almost 5 years ago, and I am currently NED (No Evidence of Disease)! Thank you, God! It was a much more advanced diagnosis & a much rougher treatment. So, while I don't really want to focus on me and my story -- I want to encourage anyone who is going through this -- that there are some great advances in the treatment of breast cancer. I wanted to share a positive story! Hang in there! And to encourage everyone to do self exams & get your mammograms!
And I created this design to remind everyone to take care of themselves & those that they love! This is a 2 color/layer design that is great for Heat Transfer Vinyl, adhesive vinyl - or even sublimation! So I hope you enjoy & wear it proudly!
Until Next Time --
