Cancer Ribbon Thank You

Hello everyone!  As I am sure you have either heard, or read, my mother is currently in treatment for lymphoma.  She will be having a stem cell transplant in the next few months and is receiving chemotherapy right now.  She has had a lot of people extending kindness to her and I wanted to make her some special thank you notes to use during this time.

I used my Cricut to cut the ribbons from the Pink Journey Cricut cartridge.  I also used the Plantin Schoolbook cartridge to cut the ovals.  I also added some stamping for the sentiment and background on the oval.  And of course, they wouldn't be complete without a rhinestone in the center of that bright green ribbon.  Lime green is the color for Non-Hodgkins Lymphoma awareness.

I thank all of you for your kind words and support.  It will definitely be a long several months.  My mom is a very brave woman.  This is her second time battling Lymphoma.

Yesterday, my mom shaved her head.  Her hair was falling out at a very rapid pace from the chemotherapy and she decided to just get it over with and shave her head.  I have posted her before and afters  here. 

My mom is also the honoree for this year's Leukemia Lymphoma Team In Training marathon team.  They are training to run a marathon in San Diego later this year, with the hopes of raising money for Leukemia and Lymphoma research.

 I hope you are all having a wonderful week.  I have had a pretty good one.

Tomorrow is Opening Day for Little League.  My son is ready to play ball this season.  And I am ready to be his biggest fan!

Have a fabulous weekend!
