More Cards for Breast Cancer Awareness Month

Today is the last day to enter the giveaway!

Here are three more cards I made over the weekend to add to the Breast Cancer Awareness series I started for World Card Making Day.

In an effort to become more aware of breast cancer issues, I was perusing BreastCancer.org and came across an issue I never would have considered before: Ways to prepare for a natural disaster when you have breast cancer.

Emergency Preparedness is a topic I'm exposed to frequently so I know all about food storage, 72 hour kits, clean water supply and the like. But I never really thought about preparing for a natural disaster in the face of an illness such as breast cancer.

The site offers some insightful suggestions for what info to have handy and what to do in a medical emergency during a natural disaster.

  • They suggest having all your doctors names and contact info, your personal medical records, your medications and your treatment regimen written down and stored in a waterproof freezer bag.
  • They also provide a number to call in case you are unable to contact your doctor and need medical attention or have questions about missed surgeries or treatments: 1-800-4CANCER
