Two of the most important and influential people of my life battled Breast Cancer and these feelings gave way to this painting :
My Grandmother is a Breast Cancer survivor :
And my Mother died from Liver Cancer that was metastasized from Breast Cancer last year.
I thought why not promote awareness on Etsy with a Treasury. I can offer my painting (seen above) in the collection and if purchased I will donate $25 to Susan G Komen for the Cure and find other great Etsy pieces that promote awareness and that might possibly donate to charity as well. So I created this Treasury : http://www.etsy.com/treasury/4d71a248e0888eef8fc4f7cd/pretty-in-pink
Several of the pieces, if purchased, will have funds donated to various Cancer charities. All Sellers that plan to donate to a charity, have the charity and the portion of donation listed on their item. Even if a Sellers is not donating, the pieces are all still great for spreading awareness.
Please go check out my Treasury at Etsy as there are some great items in the collection.
My inspiration :
Love For Me
Slender fingers grasp at me
Thin lips curl for me
Magic is sung for me
Love is showered upon
My Mother's love for me
By Ashlee Workman
From the poetry book I wrote to my Mother 12/2001
