pink ribbon white heart glass earrings 14 kt. gold-filled or clip

Details

May 19, 1998, two days before my 48th birthday, I was diagnosed with breast cancer. In the seconds it took for my doctor to say the word "cancer," my entire universe crashed.

I went through 11 months of multiple surgeries, chemotherapy and radiation. Life was hell, and hell was life.

Eighteen years later, I'm battling it again, and doing as well as can be expected. My story is here: http://divablog.meredithlaskow.com/2016/02 Every day I'm grateful to be alive.

In 1953, my mother's sister died at the age of 36 from breast cancer. Back in those days, people whispered the word "cancer" if they said it at all. "Breast cancer" was just not mentioned, period.

Now we shout it, we march for it, we pledge our money to cure it. We make noise and demand more research. We will not be silenced by an "embarrassing" disease.

I wear my pink ribbon jewelry proudly -- in support of 1 in 8 women who will be diagnosed with breast cancer; to raise awareness; and to say "I will survive."

May you survive and thrive as well.

P.S. -- if you're a woman, please get regular mammograms and do your monthly self-exam. I discovered my lump one month after a 'healthy" mammogram. It can happen to anyone.

This is the poem I wrote the day I was diagnosed:

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

and about the jewelry...

10mm glass heart beads have a pink ribbon design on a white background. They're surrounded by 4mm Austrian Swarovski crystal. Ear wires are your choice of 14 kt. gold-filled kidney wires, or gold-tone clips. If you don't specify, I'll assume pierced. Length is 1-1/4" (33mm.)

The last picture shows a 12mm heart with pink glass beads, on non-pierced clips. They're available in silver- or gold-tone clips, or in surgical steel pierced ear wires. Length is 1-1/2" (38mm.)

Materials Used

glass, austrian swarovski crystal, 14 kt goldfilled

The earrings are even prettier in person than on the web. I've gotten lots of compliments about them.
