Breast Cancer Awareness

Hey everyone!

October is Breast Cancer Awareness month and today I have for you
a new digi made just for this.

I would like to introduce Deanna Mulsow as a new digi artist
and I have been given a chance to show you her design and
color it up for you.
Breast cancer is the most common cancer among women in the United States, other than skin cancer. It is the second leading cause of cancer death in women, after lung cancer.

The chance of a woman having invasive breast cancer some time during her life is a little less 1 in 8. The chance of dying from breast cancer is about 1 in 36. Breast cancer death rates have been going down. This is probably the result of finding the cancer earlier and better treatment. Right now there are more than 2½ million breast cancer survivors in the United States.

For more information about breast cancer, how to find it early, and how to join the fight to end the disease, or contact the American Cancer Society at 1-800-227-2345 anytime, day or night.

The following steps can help you stay well and improve your odds against breast cancer.
  • The earlier breast cancer is found, the better. Sign up fobreast cancer screening reminder and be reminded you when it’s based on our early detection guidelines. If you are 40 or older, get a mammogram and breast exam every year and report any breast changes to your doctor right away.
  • You can help reduce your breast cancer risk by maintaining a healthy weight throughout life, being physically active on a regular basis (at least 150 minutes of moderate intensity or 75 minutes of vigorous intensity activity each week) and limiting alcohol intake to less than 1 drink each day for women (2 drinks for men).
I have used copics to color her up

W0, W1, W3, W5
RV00, RV10, RV11, R85

I used Anna Griffin Rose embossing folder for the pink Recollections paper
and topped with black Recollections cut on a diagonal and punched the
edge with a Martha Stewart punch.

You can find this image HERE
Tell Deanna that Heather sent you over.

I hope you have enjoyed todays creation.
