Breast cancer killed my sister, Anne Benner Gardner.
Today would have been her 30th wedding anniversary but breast cancer stole that from her. Watching her daughter, Katie, grow up, graduate, get married , have a baby, and all those little moments in between….all stolen from her.
Anne was only 41 when breast cancer killed her. She was a fantastic, intelligent, fun, loving woman. The first in our family to graduate from college, and Bryn Mawr College at that. She was my only sister and 8 years younger than me. Not a day goes by that I don’t think of her and miss her.
I made this breast cancer angel to honor her and all those who have battled this horrible disease. This is for my Mother’s 2 aunts, and 2 sisters , my Father’s aunt, my niece Amanda’s great aunt, Anne’s college roommate and close friend, who all lost the battle. For my cousin Ingrid, my niece Katie’s aunt Mary, diagnosed just last year, Katie’s step-grandmother, and my sister-in-law’s mother. I am sure you know someone who is fighting this battle.
You can make this as a pin, pendant, or ornament, I left her bald because my sister never wore her wig, although she did love hats and wore those but mostly she was bald from the chemo treatments.
