Snowman Punch Art Card & Breast Cancer Awareness
HERE if you would like to know what punches to use and to learn how to make him.
I used some Stickles to glitter up the hearts and snowflakes but it was a bit hard to get that to photograph. Hopefully some of these additional pictures at different angles will help to show the sparkle.
It does not run in my family, in fact, I am the first to be diagnosed with it. I did not feel a lump, nor did my doctor during my yearly exam. Thankfully though the routine yearly mammogram caught it. An ultrasound followed the mammogram to confirm that there was a mass. Biopsy followed confirming that it was cancer. I had surgery last week and I have further treatments ahead of me. Although I have some health issues that make it harder to treat me for breast cancer, I have the fact that it was caught early in my favor.
I'm putting this in my post today with the hopes that my story will encourage those who don't have a yearly mammogram to go get it done. The key to winning the fight against breast cancer is early detection. Don't be lazy, don't be scared and don't be stupid.....schedule your yearly mammogram and get it done if you haven't already. Do it for your family and friends....do it for you.
Thanks for stopping by and checking out my punch art snowman!
