Did you know that October is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month? I’m reminded each year when I start to see hints of pink in women’s wardrobe and shoes around the end of September. Then yesterday the Susan G. Komen 3-Day Walk For the Cure started here in Georgia, and the it runs right outside of Mod Podge Command Central. I think the foundation did that on purpose! Tee hee. I always love seeing the women in their pink bunny ears, tutus, wings and glasses. I have to be honest though, I have never seen boob hats. When Mary from Hot Potatoes sent me these pictures of these fashionable and funny hats she crafted with papier-mache and Mod Podge, I had to pass them along. Mary completed her walk in Tennessee in early October, and these hats made it in the Nashville Tennessean! Her team is pictured above.
A close-up of some lone boob hats for your viewing pleasure. Mary says “my hands are permanently covered in Mod Podge.” So are mine Mary, so are mine.
This is definitely my favorite picture. This woman is a 35 year survivor of breast cancer. I can’t stop smiling.
If you’ve ever lost someone to breast cancer (or any other cancer), please leave a comment. My great-grandmother Leta died of breast cancer and then I lost my grandmother Beverly to colon cancer when she was 57. To learn more, head to Susan G. Komen For the Cure or to the American Cancer Society. Together hopefully we can stamp out this stinky disease.
