Angela would like to say a few words about Auntie Margaret
My DH's dear Auntie Margaret survived Breast cancer in the early 90's, long before I knew her. Sadly while I was pregnant, she discovered that the cancer had returned and spread throughout her body. She fought very bravely through what was a terrible illness.
Auntie Margaret passed away 3 weeks before my son was born. I will always be sad that Daniel never got to meet his Auntie Margaret, but we tell him about her all the time, and have a little jumper that she knitted for him. She went out of her way to make me feel like family from the very beginning.
She was such a lovely, amazing lady, who always tried to make everyone feel welcome, I will never forget her encouraging smiles at large family events when she knew I was nervous, and how she had a hug and a kind word for everyone.
I hope that what we have done this month will help people to be more aware about breast cancer, and that through early detection hopefully a much more positive outcome for everyone.
Di would like to remember her Mum, Caz's Gram.
My mum was a legend in her own lifetime. When she was diagnosed with a rogue cancerous brain tumour we her family were devastated but inspired by her courage. She underwent radio therapy and died in my sister's arms just after undergoing her last treatment. We were blessed during the last 3 months of her life in that we all got to see her and spend time with her. She is a hard act to follow and still inspires us. She was Mum, Gram and friend. This is the last photograph I have of her and it was taken by my niece Danni. She had begun to lose her hair and wore this lovely hat!
We loved all of your bosom layouts and could never pick a favourite to showcase. But, a special place in all of hearts is now taken up by Kat's Mum. Kat's layout is so inspiring and we wish her Mum all the best for the future.
To celebrate the end of our *Bosoms extravaganza* the fabulously talented Kate Hadfield has designed two sets of pink digi doodles exclusively for It's a creative world.
You can download the first set here and the second set will be available this weekend.
