I have a disability called Cerebral Palsy. I am non-verbal and use a wheelchair to get around. I’m also a computer artist; I’ve been raising money for the National Breast Cancer Foundation through my artwork on cards and calendars.
Breast Cancer Calendar for NBCF
My high school friend was diagnosed with breast cancer a couple of years ago, and I thought I could make a difference to the lives of people with breast cancer.
This is the second breast cancer calendar I’ve done. My 2015 breast cancer calendars will first go on sale from the National Breast Cancer Foundation tent at the Mother’s Day Classic in Hobart. They will sell for $10-00 per calendar, and all sale proceeds will go to the National Breast Cancer Foundation.
A box of my calendars is also bound for Brisbane where my friend will be joining her local Mother’s Day Classic event.
Mother’s Day Classic: Hobart
I am going to be wheeling around the 4km walk in the Mother’s Day Classic in Hobart. It’s my goal to raise $500. Besides selling the 2015 breast cancer calendar, I’m asking friends to donate a few dollars to my fundraising page. Together, we can all help raise money to find a cure.
You can follow my breast cancer fundraiser Facebook page called Fairies of Pink Hope.
Thank you from the bottom of my heart ~ Janelle
