Unique Breast Cancer Gifts Offer Encouragement for Women

Posted by Kyle Design on October 1, 2014

As we kick off breast cancer awareness month my heart goes out to everyone who has been touched in one way or another by this terrible disease. And I imagine that’s all of us since 1 in 8 women will be diagnosed with breast cancer. In fact, in the time it has taken me to get this far along in this blog post, one more woman has been diagnosed. But, a diagnosis is not a death sentence and I like to look at the bright side, which is that in the U.S. there are over 2 million breast cancer survivors walking our streets, playing with their kids and grandkids, sipping pumpkin spice lattes and making every day count.

So let’s celebrate the good things.

Everyone woman who has beat cancer deserves a daily reminder of how strong she is. And every woman who’s still battling needs encouragement. Let’s use this month as a reminder to embrace the time we have on this planet, to make time for those we love, and to encourage the women in our lives who are facing the toughest fight of their lives.

I love this graphic I saw on Pinterest:

Breast Cancer Quote

Such a great quote to motivate and encourage men and women who have been diagnosed with breast cancer. Engrave this on a unique breast cancer gift from Kyle Design to remind someone you love that attitude is everything. Kyle’s pink ribbon gifts are all handcrafted for you and offer a fantastic way to let your mom, sister or friend know how much you love them. Create a keepsake of a loved one or shop motivational gifts for breast cancer patients to offer them daily encouragement.

Helping To Find A Cure For Breast Cancer at Kyle Design

Each October, Kyle Design donates 5% of all sales of items with the color pink or that feature the awareness ribbon design to an organization that is working towards a cure for breast cancer.

October is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month, and this year we were very happy to donate $150 to the Endowed Fund for The Breast Cancer Site Researcher at Mayo Clinic. Even better, the Mayo Clinic matches any donation (up to $250,00), so the value of our gift doubles to $300. The Mayo Clinic operates three research hospitals plus more than 50 clinics.  It is one of the world’s preeminent medical research facilities and I thought it was a good choice for this year’s donation.

Last year, we were able to donate $90 to the Susan G. Komen for a Cure organization, so we were very happy to be donating over 50% more than last year to a worthy organization. Ever dollar helps move us toward breakthroughs in the field of breast cancer research.

I started this program in honor of my cousin Kim, a breast cancer survivor, who passed away last year in her early 50s. It was such a shock to lose a such a happy, vibrant family member who was just a few years older than I am. She was a fabulous gardener (her garden was a National Wildlife Federation Certified Wildlife Habitat) and she traveled the world, too.

At the memorial service, there is a wonderful picture of her with a giant panda from a trip to the Giant Panda Sanctuary and Breeding Centre at the Wolong National Nature Reserve in China. I created the Panda Christmas ornament at right as a memorial for her sisters and engraved a message for them on the back.

I’m proud that Kyle Design is a company that donates to organizations that fund mammograms, research causes of breast cancer and develop treatments for the disease. I hope we can one day soon find a cure for breast cancer.
