My Hero

Today begins the new inspiration challenge at Dude Time Doodles. Besides having pretty colors to pick from it also has the theme, "Heroes". You definitely want to visit the Dudettes' for amazing inspiration and creativity!

Before you continue on, let me tell you about MY HERO. According to the dictionary, a hero is admired or idealized for courage and that is the definition that reflects my feelings forf my dear friend who is undauntedly fighting a war with ovarian cancer that threatens her life. I love her dearly, she's My Hero as well as a mother, grandmother, champion of champions, friend to all and so much more.

I used the Breast Cancer Awareness Girl from Bonibleaux Designs and instead of coloring it pink, I used teal, the color of ribbon that signifies ovarian cancer and coincidently, September is Ovarian Cancer Awareness month.  Sadly, until cancer is conquered the roll of colored ribbons listed below will continue to grow. 

Yellow - Bladder cancer 
Grey - Brain cancer 
Pink - Breast cancer 
White - Cervical cancer 
Gold - Childhood cancers 
Dark blue - Colon cancer 
Burgundy & Ivory - Head & Neck cancer 
Lavender - General Cancer 
Kelly Green - Kidney 
Orange - Leukemia 
Clear - Lung 
Lime Green - Lymphoma 
Black - Melanoma 
Burgundy - Multiple Myeloma 
Teal - Ovarian 
Purple - Pancreatic cancer 
Blue - Prostate cancer 
Light Yellow - Sarcoma/Bone 
Peach - Uterine cancer
