Caregivers – Her Fight is My Fight

Caregivers are often the forgotten ones while they help their loved one through the cancer battle.  So for those of you who know me well, this mission won’t surprise you.  Somewhere, at sometime, I heard the phrase ‘Her Fight is My Fight’ and that has not left my thoughts.

Where do Caregivers Get Support?

When I was going through my breast cancer treatments, Rodney and I often wondered where do the caregivers get support?  Where are they able to go to vent their fears, their frustrations, their sense of helplessness as they watch their wife battle something they can do nothing about, except be there.

Fighting breast cancer is not just for women (especially since men are susceptible to breast cancer as well).  It is for those who are around them as well.  Rodney and my daughter fought the same fight I did, just in a different manner.

Grey t-shirt with the words "Her fight is my fight (I married a warrior)" on itSo that gets me to my next and newest Etsy item – I will be creating customized t-shirts regarding breast cancer….. mainly for men.  My hope is that people will buy these to know that us survivors and warriors wouldn’t be where we are without our caregivers.  And sometimes the only way a caregiver can provide support is by wearing it loud and proud.  🙂

Pink Ribbon Cupboard

The ribbon colors can be customized of course – I have a friend battling leukemia right now and I know her family is fighting right alongside of her.
Also – $2.00 of every breast cancer t-shirt sale will be going to a local organization in our area, The Pink Ribbon Cupboard.

This organization assists women and their families who are going through treatment with items such as paying their rent, providing gas and grocery gift cards, and doing what they can to alleviate some worries for the family.  They assisted me – and I want to give back.  Come check out “my line”.   Click here to be directed to my Etsy store!

Until next time, capture life kreatively!
