Interesting timing on this post. I just re-connected with a friend whom I haven't seen or spoken with in way too many years. There was no intent to go absent on one another. It happens when you live in different states, and children and life in general just kind of take over. In her recent email, she confided that she had experienced a really tough year, having being diagnosed with breast cancer and then coping with a challenging treatment regime.
One in eight women will be diagnosed with breast cancer at some point in her lifetime. We all know someone or will . . . . Thank goodness we have such big-hearted people, such as the seven designers, the stores that loaned merchandise, the builder (Levitt Partnership) and architect (Hollenbeck ) -- not to mention the many behind-the-scenes volunteers -- who made this project happen -- all for the purpose of raising both awareness and funds to prevent and fight breast cancer!
