Happy October everyone!  Thank you so much for your interest in our 2nd Annual Breast Cancer Awareness Drive!  I'm proud of the strides that we made last year, and hope that this year we can be as successful.


As you probably have already heard, I've always been such a supporter of giving back to the community around me.  It wasn't until I was in my early 20's that I was made aware of the devastating effects that cancer has on both the individual, and the family unit as a whole:  my husband (boyfriend at the time)'s grandfather passed away from lung cancer.  When my husband, himself, was diagnosed with non-Hodgkins lymphoma at the age of 21, I realized that cancer can affect anyone at any age.  We both started to get involved in different charity drives to help eradicate cancer.


It was at that time that my grandmother got sick as well.  When my grandmother passed away from ovarian cancer a few years ago, I started to do all I could to help make those fighting the disease more comfortable.  She was always the one who pushed me to give back to the community around me.  Heck, even her final words to me were "I love that hat.  Give it to someone who needs it now."  I promised her I would donate in her name.  I have kept the magnets (in the picture on the left) on our fridge since then to remind me that one woman can change the course of our fight against cancer.


This year, Silver's Knitted Treats will be making a donation to Susan G. Komen on November 1st.  100% of the sales we make off these pink items will be donated directly to that very same charity whose founder started her fight for her sister.  If you cannot buy at this time, I would appreciate you spreading the word.  Think of this drive as you think of presents for the holidays.


No matter your reason for helping, I thank you from the bottom of my heart!  -Silver-
