Cancer Support & Survivor Blog Hop!


Welcome to our Cancer Support & Survivor blog hop.

I am honored to be the host of this.
I am doing this in honor of my mom who is fighting cancer now, and is a survivor from years ago. July 19 we will know her prognosis and more details of her cancer. So please keep her in your thoughts and prayers. I have lost an aunt of mine who was like a mom to me 6 years ago, my husband's mom died of cancer as well. So this Blog Hop is dedicated to those you have cancer, who have survived cancer, and those that we have lost to cancer.
I made a card for my mom. So I am going to send this to her today. Also the Cancer ribbon is hiding in her flowers, that way it doesnt put it right under her nose. It is a nice way to say I am thinking of you, but the cancer is a small problem. I used the new Cricut Cartridge Flower Shop. I have 64 pictures of how I made it, so I will be posting that on Monday HOW I made it, with the pictures and explination, you wil be able to easily make these flowers too, please dont forget to come back on monday. Also put your email in on the space on the right, then you will get our daily Cricut Creations, anywhere from 2-4 different ones EVERY day!

Thanks again,
      ~Erica

Hi Erica, I love your card and am sure your mum will too! I feel very honoured to be apart of this blog hop as I lost my mum suddenly to cancer 9 years ago. It would have been her 69th birthday on 26th July too. I also have 3 members of my immediate family still fighting the battle. I will be thinking of you all on the 19th. Sending best wishes to all.

I've checked out all the blogs. And i have tears in my eyes! While I've lost famiy to cancer, I'm thrilled to be able to give God the glory that I've been cancer free 16 years now after being diagnosed with Ovarian Cancer. I was downright crying when I read the spoon story! I have Rhue Arthritis, and have suffered 5 heart attacks, and some days I don't think I have enough spoons, but God gives us the strength we need each day! What a great theme! and kudos to the little girl making the bracelets! God bless her! Erica, hope you're feeling better soon, and get more spoons! Praying for your mother!

I hope that everything works out well for your mom. This blog hop makes me sad, don't know if I will make it through. I lost both of my in-laws to cancer at very young ages. My dad-in-law to lung cancer at 71, my mom-in-law to breast cancer at 70.

My computer won't show the card so I will have to come back - I can't wait to see it. My mom just finished up her year of chemo treatments for breast cancer. I will be praying for you mom, and for you as the daughter since I have been where you are.
I have made lot of items for my mom and others that you can see on my blog if you want to check them out: deasdoodles.blogspot.com (I just started it so would love for you to check it out!)
Be back soon when my computer rests....
