Have any of you seen this?


I know that most of you can make your own scrub hats and scrubs…..but don’t you know someone that needs these?  What a great way to help

The National Breast Cancer Foundation!  It seems that everyone is getting on the band wagon to help fight Breast Cancer.

These hot pink scrubs are just awesome?  I personally like the black and pink ones.

If you go to Sew Cal’s blog, she has posted about Quilting for a cure, Susan G. Komen for the Cure.  Excellent blog post and awesome information.

If you notice the four patch on my sidebar, the concept is “Make a Patch – Make a donation.”  For every block you make, you donate 4 dollars along with it for the American Cancer Society.

As you may have heard me mention, my best friend lost her mom to breast cancer.  Her mom was so amazing and I miss her terribly.  At this moment in time, my dear friend has a daughter that is having chemo treatments and will have to have a double mastectomy.  This really hits home for me and I know most of you out there.

So whether it is by buying hot pink scrubs, making a four patch, or just going out and taking care of your own physicals and making sure that others do as well, you will be making a difference!

have your friends daughter get a second opinion most definitely. There has been a lot of reports of doctors saying you need a double mastectomy, when in deed you really didn't need one at all,.

I think it's a great idea. Thanks for sharing the info.

Scrubs have gotten sooo cute. I remember when we had to wear green one with no variation. Now it is wonderful to have organizations making money for important causes with them.

When my mom had surgery the last time the surgery tech came to get her with a scrub cap with skull and crossbones on it. I am not sure that was reassuring for the patients!!! ;(
