Scarves 4 Life Day
On June 27, 1993, my son Clyde Matthew Carr lost his three-year 8-month battle to Leukemia. I have also lost other family members to other forms of cancer. Researchers work hard to find the causes and cures to various forms of illnesses. Not only do I want my son remembered, not only do I want others remembered, but I would like to be a part of the cure.
I am establishing a "Scarves 4 Life" day to be celebrated on June 27th. Many forms of cancer are recognized by many colors. Orange represents Leukemia. We're all familiar with pink for Breast Cancer. A percentage of the sale of a scarf will go to the research of a particular research. For example, a percentage of a sale of an orange scarf will be donated to The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. The buyer also has a choice of where the money is donated, as long as it can be verified as a legitimate donation.
June 27th is normally a very warm day (unless you live in Kentucky, then you don't know what it's going to be like! smile). (1) By wearing a winter scarf on a summer day, it will cause some discomfort to he wearer. However, fighting cancer is a very uncomfortable situation for the fighter. What is one day? (2) You're surely to be asked why you're wearing a scarf. That will give you an opportunity to share a variety of things. Information that you have learned about a particular cancer. Something about your loved one. I know for me, as a mother who has lost a child...talking about him makes me feel better.
If you have any questions, concerns, or even suggestions...please convo me @ Ddonnasmith1@aol.com. Please reference Scarves 4 Life in the reference line.
