Battling Breast Cancer - Fundraising for Family

My 34 year old cousin, Minden is battling breast cancer.  She is married with two very active little boys, ages 1 and 3.  While she has a very supportive network of family and friends the medical bills are piling up.  Minden completed eight rounds of chemotherapy and is recovering from a double mastectomy. She still has radiation and several reconstructive surgeries to go so even more bills are on the horizon.

My family is not in a position to help her financially but I have a room full of craft supplies I have hoarded collected over the years so I went to work. I made over 70 ornaments and listed them in my Etsy shop.  Another generous member of my family has offered to pay for all Etsy fees and cover all shipping costs!  

Glittered Heart Breast Cancer Ornament

Ornaments are $12 or $15 each and every penny of the purchase price goes to my cousin PLUS you get free shipping!  If you see something else in my shop you would like to purchase use coupon code THANKYOU for free shipping on the rest of your order as well (free shipping within the US only).

Recycled Beer Can Breast Cancer Ornament

Each ornament ships in a gift box with a special tag I designed with a catchphrase those who know Minden will recognize.

I hope to raise at least $1000 and if I sell out I will make more!  Please, check out the Ornaments for Minden section in my Etsy shop, buy some and help this family.  Maybe it will help pay for Christmas gifts for Minden's handsome boys!
