What would you do if someone you loved was diagnosed with breast cancer? Breast cancer doesn’t discriminate, it can happen to anyone, at any age.

Janelle McMillan: Christmas cards

Artwork for Breast Cancer Foundation

by Janelle McMillan

I have taken up the challenge of using my artwork to raise money for the National Breast Cancer Foundation because a classmate from high school was diagnosed with breast cancer a couple of years ago. I have a disability called Cerebral Palsy that makes my body move uncontrollably. Cerebral Palsy may have invaded my body but it hasn’t invaded my spirit to have a go in life.

I created all the artwork for the 2015 breast cancer calendar; Christmas cards and framed A3 artworks on a computer using a joystick for the mouse and a switch behind my head as the mouse button. I can’t use a computer like everyone else because of my lack of body control.

Calendars and Christmas Cards for a Cause

My idea to create a breast cancer calendar was to raise money for breast cancer research, but also to raise awareness among young people. The calendars sell for $10.00 each.
