  • Sandy N.

    Thank you for supporting breast cancer research and awareness, and thank you especially for encouraging all of us to reach out to those we love and lift them up with prayers and things like cards. I have a dear friend who is going through treatment for the second time. She was cancer-free for 11 years, and she is an amazing woman whose outlook and courage inspire all of us who know her. For Marcie, who does her job as a mail carrier every day, shows up faithfully to help teach 1-6th grade girls with me every Wednesday, and comes to church on Sundays, I honor you. I pray for healing and comfort. For my dear friend Sarah, who just had a mastectomy two weeks ago, I pray for healing, hope and comfort. For all of you who are facing this terrible disease, may God help us find a cure–soon!

    Monique has and will be in my prayers. My mother had breast cancer in her 40’s and since then, suffered from skin cancer, bladder cancer (twice), colon cancer (twice) and eventually pancreatic cancer, which took her life in 2005. She was the true meaning of survivor! After her breast cancer battle (that took away all of the breast as well as the muscle around it, very radical), she volunteered with an organization called Reach for Recovery. She was a wonderful role model, and she is sorely missed by the many who loved her!

  • Nancy

    My thoughts and prayers are with Monique today especially and with her thru this very difficult time. My heart goes out to anyone that is fighting this battle.

    Thanks for making so many of us more aware.

    I mis-spoke on my last email. I should have said Cricut CD not Design Studio. I use my Design Studio so much when I think Cricut I think Design Studio. Sorry Sorry. Still sending Monique good thoughts.

  • Debbie

    My mom was a breast cancer survivor who lost her battle with another health woe, but we were grateful to have had the time with her that we did.

  • Stephanie

    My thoughts and prayers go out to everyone who knows someone or who is personally going through a battle with breast cancer. My Grandmother had a double mastectomy six years ago. It was really hard on the whole family but we all came together and prayed she would be okay. She is a vibrant lady and an such a great inspiration to us all. I am praying that Monique has a successful surgery today and for her road to recovery.

    I think it is amazing that a portion of your proceeds today will be donated to Breast Cancer Research. Thank you for having such a kind heart.

  • Pat Wimbush

    My thoughts and prayers go to all fighting breast cancer, really any type cancer. I have survived breast cancer for 1 year. It has been a long hard road, and I am still moving forward. Thanks for everything that you are doing to help find a cure for this disease.

  • Linda

    My DH won his battle with multiple myeloma two years ago. My best friend’s husband just fought non-hodgkins lymphoma. My prayers to all who are fighting any kind of cancer. I know this is breast cancer awareness month. I am showing my support by wearing my pink crystals glued along a clear nylon thread clipped in my hair.
    My prayers to Monique for a successful surgery.

    I am a 2 yr breast cancer survivor. I just took it one step, one day at a time and tried to look at everything as one step closer to my cure. My best advice is to put yourself in God’s hands. especially when you’re feeling overwhelmed and scared, and trust Him to carry you through.

    My thoughts and prayers go out to all those battling Breast Cancer right now. I found a lump on my breast and have been closely monitoring it for the last 1-1/2 years. My great grandmother was a survivor of Breast Cancer until the day pancreatic cancer took her to heaven. I pray that everyone who experiences cancer will experience the healing powers of God.

  • Pat

    Praying for Monique. Also praying for my sister-in-law who is in the battle for her life with cancer. Rosann had cancer about two years ago, got through it and then lost her husband/my brother last August and now her cancer is back. It will be hard going through it all over without the help/support of a loving husband. She does not live close to me but was encouraged when a lady from my church sent me a card to send to Rosann.

    My thoughts and prayers for Monique today as she goes in for surgery, and a speedy recovery—-know you are not alone—-Nancy

  • Kathy Stutzman

    My 88 yr old aunt surprised me one day by telling me she had had surgery for breast cancer. Who would have thought one would get it at that age. I love her dearly. Due to her age, there was no chemotherapy just pills. Thankfully, she came through it. I recently made a breast cancer journal for my boss who just got a six month checkup and she is still in remission. Monique, I would be honored to make you one also.

  • Sharon Harrison

    Good luck to Monique. It is a long battle but with all the support you have coming your way I hope it is a successful battle. I’m a survivor and know how important support is.
