Breast Cancer, Moms, and a Giveaway

I met Colleen, aka Classy Mommy, at Camp Baby earlier this month. As women are wont to do, we were talking about our kids and somehow the topic shifted to boobs. Always the boobs with moms!

Like me, Colleen had a breast cancer scare last year. Her daughter was only 9 weeks old. She ended up having a lumpectomy, just like I did last fall, and thankfully found out that she, too, was cancer free. We both talked about how frightening the experience was and how lucky we are to have our health. Once you’ve gone through any type of cancer scare, you realize how fragile life can be. My mother-in-law is a breast cancer survivor as is Miss C’s soccer coach. Every day I notice the familiar “pink ribbon” of someone battling or who has battled breast cancer. badgegiveaway-753940.gif

Colleen has put together an amazing prize package for a mom who has or is battling breast cancer as part of a special giveaway in honor of Mother’s Day. The items range from a boutique diaper bag to a Kate Spade purse to toys to CDs to bath and body products and have a total retail value of more than $1,200! She’s accepting nominations via e-mail to through May 11 (Mother’s Day).

Visit the Classy Mommy blog for full details about what to include in your nomination e-mail.

This is a wonderful opportunity to help a breast cancer patient, and mom, and make their Mother’s Day a little brighter. I know Colleen would appreciate it if you helped spread the word!

    For once, I am happy to not qualify for the give a way but I have never seen a give-a-way that has so much thought and love in it!

    Kudo’s for classy mommy and too you for making it aware. I had a scare, and I am so relieved and thankful that it ended up being a cyst! Praise be to God! I cried for a week!!!!

    Love this post!
