My mom is a 2 time Breast Cancer Survivor, and 1 time Lung Cancer Survivor of over 12 years now. She has been blessed with a lot of strength and support. While being a caregiver to my Father, she also took care of herself through all this.

So this leads me to those other people who have touched our lives at the shows and who buy a Breast Cancer Survivor Stick. Each stick is so different, yet has the same meaning. To survive! I like to add words of inspiration, along with a pink ribbon. The word Survivor and a word relating to each letter of the word survivor.
Below, I'd like to introduce some the people I have met along my journey of sharing my art with others.
Due to her illness with treatments, the moment was delayed for this woman to be united with her stick. It finally happened and many tears were shed. She was very touched. My mom colored the stick to be a part of the making of such a memorable moment.
Isabel finds her stick hanging in my booth as her friend looks on. What a great surprise gift!
She couldn't stop crying. She holds her Breast Cancer Survivor Stick along with her Life History added to it.
Isabel, with a friend, uses her stick in the Race for The Cure in Jacksonville, Fl .
