Breast Cancer Awareness | ALL profits going straight to my friend =)
Hi All! I'm Kirstie and this Breast Cancer Awareness Month, I want to help a young friend of mine who was recently diagnosed with breast cancer. For the sake of her privacy, let’s call this friend Rebecca. In the handful of years I’ve had the pleasure of knowing Rebecca, she has gone from colleague to friend to Little Sis. Yep, she’s family to me.
To date Rebecca has had a double mastectomy, is undergoing reconstruction and prepping for chemo and radiation. Most recently the doctors informed her that the cancer may have spread to her bone - another blow in a series of bad phone calls with medical professionals. If this wasn’t enough for one person to bear, Rebecca is of child-bearing age and contending with twice daily IVF injections in order to freeze her eggs before chemo does damage to her system. Here’s the kicker - the cost of IVF and the storage of her eggs is an out-of-pocket expense…to the tune of $14,000?!! Talk about kicking a gal when she’s down!
As a mom, I am so empathetic to her desire to keep her post- cancer options open…in an effort to help alleviate some of the financial burden associated with this terrible interruption in what should otherwise be a carefree and happy walk through her 30s, I’ve designed (ok, knocked-off…and subverted :)) the SUPREME logo in a breast cancer awareness power pink - ALL profits will go directly to help pay for her IVF treatments and egg storage. Why not buy one for a friend, too? Thanks all - much love, kirstie
