Fight Breast Cancer!



As you may know, I am a Breast Cancer survivor for nearly 5 years now! Wa Hooo!!!




I support research and charities wherever and whenever I can. Here in Portland Oregon on May 8th, the American Cancer Society is having a 'Making Strides Against Breast Cancer' walk at the Rose Quarter Commons. It is a 2 mile/ 4 mile Non-Competitive Walk. This walk supports:


  • Helping someone with breast cancer find a ride to treatment or a free place to stay

  • Keeping the phone lines open every minute of everyday and night for questions that need answers

  • Connecting people who are newly diagnosed with survivors who have "been there"

  • Helping women get access to mammograms (Important to me!)

  • Funding groundbreaking research to find cures

YOU can help by donating to my team efforts at PortlandStrides.org Once you get to the web page, click on Donate, then find my team, "Pruitt Creations" or find it under my name, and DONATE! Every penny is appreciated for finding a cure! Thanks!


Also, I am running a special thru tomorrow April 15th on my handmade Breast Cancer Lap Quilt. 20% Off thru midnight the 15th! (Please see the instructions in my shop announcement about the "itEm of the dAy SALE" for details.) And . . . I will still donate a portion of the proceeds of the American Cancer Society's Making Strides fund! Such a deal!
