1 in 8 women in the US will develop invasive breast cancer in her lifetime.
On August 17th, 2015, an awesome friend of ours became part of that statistic. Calling All Sistahs was started by Michele Gross, owner of CAS-ual Fridays stamps, shortly after her breast cancer diagnosis. It's her hope to create Breast Cancer Awareness beyond the month of October by reminding you to do your self breast exams on the 17h of every month. We want to use these projects each month to encourage all of you do to the same. You can read more about Michele's story here.
The Calling All Sistahs collection was created by Michele with the intent of donating 50% of her profits from all sales to Breast Cancer Awareness and Prevention charities, in honor of all women battling or who have battled breast cancer.
Be sure to join us on the 17th of every month for special projects created with the Calling All Sistahs collection and a reminder to your self exams!
I'm so thrilled to be a part of a DT that's doing so much for a good cause. I'm also thrilled that Laura's Loft is one of the first shops to carry the Calling All Sistahs collection! Laura also wants to continue funding the fight so she'll be donating 50% of all the profits from the Calling All Sistahs collection sold at her shop to breast cancer research near her in VA.
**This is a reminder to do your self exams!!**
And remind all your sistahs, too!
