Childhood Cancer Awareness Month

Happy Sunday everyone!!
I just did some tweaking in my shop and added a few new pics in the Autism/Cancer Awareness section. September is Childhood Cancer Awareness Month and the 13th is Childhood Cancer Awareness Day. I am donating a portion of my sales from the Autism/Cancer Awareness section to the American Cancer Society. I have a 6 year old niece that is a Leukemia (blood cancer) survivor and we are so grateful to all of the research so that she is still here with us. We still have a long way to go yet as she is not "cancer free" for 5 more years, so all donations for research are crucial.
According to the American Cancer Society, more than 10,700 new cases of cancer will be diagnosed in children under age 15 this year. And while rare, cancer is the second leading cause of death in children, exceeded only by accidents. The five-year survival rate for childhood cancer is 80 percent.
I also have the Autism scrunchies and can make Autism Owie Bags if interested. These are in honor of my other nieces and nephews that are diagnosed with Autism/Aspbergers.
I am happy to do special orders as long as I can get the materials needed. Please check out my shop and by all means make a purchase to support good cause!!
Thank you to everyone for your support and please feel free to send my shop and blog site out to everyone in your address book!!
