Judy and I have been friends for over twenty years. She helped me get a job at her company years ago, when I was temping there. She was there when I got engaged, she was at my wedding, my baby shower and of course when my daughters were born.
We shared many times together, and even when I moved all the way to the other side of the world, I was greeted by her Fax, at our hotel welcoming us to Hong Kong. We managed a long distance friendship for ten years and when I returned to the States we found new ways to share all the things we have in common.
I am so proud of my friend Judy. Judy is a breast cancer survivor. I watched her face the challenge head on without whining and with lots of strength and such a positive attitude.
I remember when she first found out and she called me. She said “Well, if I have to do Chemo than I am going to find the best darn wig I can.” And she did find the best darn wig you have ever seen!
I never heard her complain, the doctors were amazed at her great attitude. To her there was no choice but to win the fight, and she did.
Pink Pizazz Too
Not only did Judy become stronger than ever during her battle, but she discovered the creative that lived within. Judy creates many things, but truly loves to design jewelry.
Pink is for Girls
She has recently added a new line of bracelets as a tribute, she writes:
“A tribute to women who are thriving after breast cancer and to those on the journey to wellness."
PINK IS POWER
"I stumbled into a new local bead shop about 2 years ago and was amazed at the array of beads and classes they had to offer. I signed up for a beginners class and was immediately hooked. I never imagined that I could be crafty but this medium was just what I needed. I swear that chemo therapy (I'm a three year breast cancer thriver/survivor!)released some inner creativity in me for which I am grateful. See, there is a silver lining to chemo therapy, in addition to wellness!
Pink is Power Buttons and Baubles
I can't tell you how much I enjoy making these items. I can't wait for the end of the work day to get up in my work room and get busy. I certainly hope that feeling comes through in the finished product.
I have created some new items in tribute to all women who are thriving after breast cancer and all those on the journey to wellness. I am offering them at a discounted price with free shipping. "
Every purchase comes in an adorable taffeta/satin pouch
I hope that you visit Judy's wonderful Etsy shop called ...The color of hope is surely the color Pink.
