Think Pink! (Oscar Freebie)


Breast cancer: it's mean, it's nasty, and we need to wipe it off the face of this earth. According to the American Cancer Society, 232,340 new cases of invasive breast cancer will be diagnosed in women this year alone! As far as I'm concerned, even one new case is one too many. There are presently over 2.8 million breast cancer survivors in the United States. I am honored to know several survivors, and am grateful on behalf of each and every one of those women and their families. But I can't help but pray for a time when none will have to go through it. Although a cure has not yet been found, continued research and increased rates of early detection through public awareness have already led to great strides in the right direction. Let's keep things moving in the right direction, ladies! Do your monthly self-exams, get those uncomfortable-yes-but oh-so-necessary mammograms, and pray for the doctors and scientists to find an answer soon.

To honor those who have suffered, survived, or are currently affected by this disease, Oscar has donned his pink ribbon today. I would love it if you would help spread awareness by using him this month in your projects.

Here he is in black and white. His ribbon can be colored in any of the colors that symbolize specific cancers, as we know that breast cancer is not the only battle to be fought.




And here he is in full-color, wearing his pink ribbon.



Last but not least, here is a sentiment (in black and white, and again with a little color) that you can use along with Oscar to help spread awareness this month.
