Help Save the Boobies!

I love the word Boobies. I do. It’s great. And boobies are great and they’re worth saving, dang it!

My fabulous friend, Celia, is participating in the Los Angeles AVON Walk for Breast Cancer in September. She has to raise at least $1,800 for the walk.

Celia’s Story

“Three years ago, I tested positive for the BRCA 1 gene.  I am very fortunate to have insurance so that I can be tested early and often.  In September, I’ll walk 39 miles over two days to raise money and awareness for women who are not so fortunate.  I will walk for every woman whose life has ever been touched by breast cancer.  I hope you will support my walk.” 

I donated, but want to do more. See, my aunt (dad’s sister) battled and won against breast cancer when she was 30 (a year younger than I am now). It has always been in the back of my mind growing up, but still not “real.” Then in 2003 my father faught and beat Lg B Cell Lymphoma and his brother had a benign tumor removed from his neck a few years later. Reality has set it. It’s not looking too hot on the Bordelon side of the family. Thankfully, I can report everyone is cancer free to this day – yay! But the fact remains that cancer is becoming more common amoung all ages. That’s why I wanted to give a little Lagniappe (a little something extra) and put my creative juices to work and serve the greater good.

I proudly announce that I am auctioning off a very special all pink quilt. It’s in honor of my aunt, Wynona: 

 “Moolah for the TaTas.”
