"Awareness" for a cause!! Update...

Following up in my search for someone to give my sculpture "Awareness" to, I have met some very interesting people, who have given me lots of useful information. I was also interviewed by Ann Nyberg for her lovely blog, and even feature at the Celebrate the Healing Power of Art blog... So I have to thank you all of you who have shown interest in what I'm trying to do and to those of you who have given me names of people working on Dense Breast Tissue. I really appreciate all of your efforts, thus I want to give you all a heads up on how this is coming along.... I'm currently looking into each one of the recommendations I have received, and hopefully soon, I will have someone to donate my artwork to. But, in the meantime...

... I'm donating 50% of the sales of my pocket mirrors with the printed image of "Awareness" to the Downey Sisters' Fund FOR BRCA MUTATION AWARENESS AND EDUCATION established by Phebe and Frederick Downey, to honor their daughters: Ann Downey Little • Margaret Downey Hardy • Katherine Downey Berges • Martha Downey Lemp 

The fund will be used to educate the public and the medical community about the genetic risk of breast and ovarian cancer.

Here is their story: << Each of our four daughters was determined to have a BRCA1 gene mutation in the summer of 2009. This was after one of their paternal second cousins was diagnosed with breast cancer, and tested positive for a specific BRCA1 mutation which runs in families of Irish/English descent. The hereditary factor became obvious enough to merit active attention.

Fred was tested first and found to have the mutation; our daughters then moved quickly, and unfortunately, each of the four also tested positive. This confirmed some knowledge that had been denied us: hereditary cancers can and do come through the male line. All four of our daughters are in various stages of research, prophylactic surgeries, and treatment. Shockingly, Ann is now battling early stage breast cancer and Martha, early stage ovarian cancer. In each case, awareness of the BRCA1 mutation led to earlier diagnosis than would have occurred otherwise.  Both Kate and Meg are in the process of undergoing prophylactic surgeries, and we hope and pray that no further cancers are discovered. 

The sadness, the shock, and the diagnoses prompted us to act. We chose FORCE as our avenue because its mission included "to raise awareness of hereditary breast and ovarian cancer" and "to promote research specific to hereditary cancer".  This fund will be targeted towards education of both the public and the medical community, so that through it, we might be able to lessen procedures, ease suffering, and best of all, save lives.>>

You can also donate directly to their fund here.

Thanks again to all... Please, take good care of yourselves and the lovely ladies in your lives!!!
