cancer ribbon for Christmas

We draw names for the extended family to purchase presents for Christmas.  The youngest “J” got one of his girl cousins.  I ask this girl cousin what she wanted for Christmas.  She requested the box set of the Hunger Games.  But since it was coming from her little boy cousin, she requested that it be covered in pink bows.  I’m going to modify that request.  I’m going to cover it in pink ribbons, cancer ribbons.

I have been blessed that all my friends (way too many diagnosis this year) that have been diagnosed with cancer are on their way to a healthy recovery.

This ribbon happens to be peach in honor of a great co-worker who is defeating uterine cancer.
