    I have been asked to donate a bag or two to the RELAY OF LIFE... this is an example of what i will be doing..
    This particular bag was bought site unseen by a gentleman for his 85 year old mother. She is a 5 year survivor of breast cancer.
    For each one of these bags I sell. I am doing my part by donating some money to the cancer foundation.

    That is a great bag. Thank you for what you are doing. I have two friends that are breast cancer survivors. Our county has the highest rate in Ohio and no one seems to care to find out why. The ladies lived within a few miles of each other. I'll never forget the day that my one friend told me. We cried on and off all day!

    Thank you again!!!

    thanks everyone.. but my heart goes out to those of you who suffer and who have suffered from this illness. this is just a small way of helping to bring a smile to someones face.
    the next relay for life is in june 2011 and I have a cousin who helps with it. I will be donating a couple bags so they can auction them off.
