DT Card for Crafting with Dragonflies # 67 : Pinktober (Breast Cancer Month)

Hi everyone, over at Crafting with Dragonflies, a challenge blog I run, we have a very important challenge that means a lot to me personally.
 I wouldn't say we are celebrating Pinktober, which is Breast Cancer awareness month. But certainly making people aware. Sadly though we all know someone don't we?

I had Breast Cancer in 2004/2005 and survived. Sadly the cancer returned two years ago in places I don't want to talk about, and few other medical conditions. I am keeping on keeping on and I have faith I will get through this as well. 
I will not give up.
For me my faith and my family have been my rock.
The medication and treatment I am receiving is holding it at bay...
So I am very blessed indeed, and I am able to live my life as normal as it can be for me.
Please do your part, donate to your local cancer group, get involved, let all the women in your life know about the dangers, check your precious boobs weekly, get a mammogram and an ultrasound. Stay on top of it. Prevention is better than the cure...believe me.

So here is my card, and  I hope to see you in the challenge. Blessings Hilde
