help kick Breast Cancer's ass

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Earlier this year my family lost an amazing, funny, spectacular friend to breast cancer. Next month my mom, sisters and aunt (herself a breast cancer survivor) will be walking 60 miles in the Arizona Breast Cancer 3-Day in her honor. They are currently fundraising for their walk, and all money will go to the Susan G. Komen Foundation which funds cancer research programs as well as educational outreach, screening and treatment for underserved women. My mom will be walking with a damaged knee and my aunt in an orthotic boot, but they are both determined to walk as far as they can. My very talented sister will also be selling handmade, one-of-a-kind clutch bags and donating the proceeds. I am hugely proud, and wish I could go home to walk with them. If anyone is interested in purchasing a clutch bag or in making a donation, please contact me at: info (at) cristanoelsmith dot com.
