October is also Breast Cancer Awareness Month and if you know a survivor, it’s time to show them just how inspirational she is to you. Putting together a commemorative scrapbook can be a great way to motivate a breast cancer survivor during treatment, or, it can act as a reminder of the strength and courage it takes to fight such a terrible disease. Show someone you love that she has strength and that she can pull through.
So how do you put together such a scrapbook? Well, we recommend including things like:
- Quotations about courage, strength, and healing.
- Photos of you and the survivor together during good times.
- Photos of milestones in cancer treatment, such as the day remission was declared.
- Quotations from famous breast cancer survivors.
- Greeting and get well cards sent from friends and family.
- Letters and notes from friends and family that the survivor can reflect on when things are getting tough.
- Plenty of pink! Pink is the official color of breast cancer awareness.
- Embellishments and pretty scraps. Anything that could be deemed special to the survivor.
- Photos of a breast cancer benefit that was held in honor of the survivor.
Now these are just a few ideas of what one could put into such a scrapbook. It’s really up to you!
