My friend Patti was diagnosed with cervical cancer. She embarked on a journey of strength and courage and endured days that most of us would cower at the thought. Her courage led her to a path of recovery and today, thankfully, she is cancer free. 11,000 women will be diagnosed with cervical cancer this year, 4,500 will die from it. However, invasive cervical cancer is highly preventable. Patti has raised awareness in all those close to her and anyone else who will lend and ear. January is Cervical Cancer awareness month. In honor of my Patti’s courage, I wanted to design a product that would help carry her message. This special luggage tag has a little lady dressed in the cervical cancer awareness colors. She packs a powerful message “Live”. I’m Inkpressed will donate 50% of all proceeds from the sale of this product to Tamika and Friends, an organization dedicated to raising awareness.
Regular Pap tests are crucial to ensure early detection and prevention. For more information please visit the National Cervical Cancer Coalition website.
