Anyway, since my dad has been battling the "C" word, I've been interested in increasing awareness. Leukemia awareness, bone marrow transplant awareness, and so on. I decided one way to do that would be to get a tattoo. I wanted a ribbon or something in a visible location...well, the hubs was just NOT down for that. In fact, he said he would divorce me. Okay then. Plan B.
I made this bracelet, that I could wear everyday! Orange is the color used for Leukemia and Green is used for transplants. I also found the little ribbon and Believe charms at Michaels craft store. 'Believe' became our new family motto around Christmas time.
I made a couple of others, one for my mom and one for my sister as well. Theirs were a little different, but I do not have good photos of them. So, even though people may not know what the colors represent, when I catch them checking it out, or they ask about it, it gives me the opportunity to make them AWARE. It's not as cool as a tattoo, but it will have to do for now!
