Swan Bay is proud to THINK PINK in October
October is Breast Cancer Awareness month, and we are offering a special Pink Wool Felt Ball Garland in our Etsy Shop for the occasion. All profits will go to support Amy's friend, Sarah, a 34 year old wife and mother, who is currently battling breast cancer. Let's THINK PINK and send Sarah some wooly love (and get a beautiful garland to decorate your home!)
A pink garland is great for a Valentine's Day decoration, for a little girl's room or nursery, a baby shower gift, or to give to a loved one as a visual reminder to give themselves a monthly exam!

Niki is also raising funds for this project! Come make a basket at Swan Bay and if you use PINK ACCENTS woven into your basket, some of the proceeds will also go to support Sarah's battle as well!

We are sending love and prayers to you, Sarah! <3
From Sarah's GIVE FORWARD page:
Sarah Walker is the one of the most caring, compassionate, and loving individuals in the history of humanity as we know it. She works hard, doesn't take short cuts, and just does things the right way. So it is unbelievably unfair that she finds herself being diagnosed with Breast Cancer at age 34.
She has no history of this in her family, so it was a huge surprise to find out the horrible news. She was diagnosed with Invasive Ductal Carcinoma (Her2+, ER+) on August 12, 2014, (the day before Elliott's 13th birthday, boooo!)
She is starting her Chemotherapy on September 10th and will start her journey to recovery. She will have 18 weeks of Chemo, 34 weeks of treatment for the Her2+, followed by surgery in January sometime. We are VERY confident that she will beat this and come out an even stronger woman. The dilemma, unfortunately, is the unexpected costs this will bring.
From medical bills, medicine, therapy, professional housecleaning, transportation costs, and many, many more that will pop up unexpectedly. We will need help. We are asking for anything you can help out with. You have know idea how much it will mean to Sarah and our family. We need to focus on positivity, and healing through this long year ahead of us.
Not having to worry about the financial portion of it, would be more mean so much to us. Thank you in advance for anything you can give, we LOVE you all!
Thank you, friends! :)
