Breast Cancer Awareness Month

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Usually I don't pay much attention to this cause. When I think of October I just think of fall, leaves turning colors, and the packing away of summer clothes. However, as I get older I realize this is something I need to pay attention to. Performing monthly breast exams is essential to early detection. I have to admit every time I need to do mine it scares me. But I realize it is something that has to be done.

In 2006 my aunt, Valerie McManus, passed away from Breast Cancer. I created these watercolors for her a few days ago. I hope she enjoys them. -love Danielle
