Earlier this year, my sister-in-law asked for my help to design a logo for her friend's breast cancer cause: Lobes of Love.
It's a unique idea to help women dealing with breast cancer and others trying to prevent it. Gently used or new earrings are donated to Lobes of Love. Then they're disinfected, polished, affixed to handmade cards and distributed at the Kansas University Cancer Center. Women who come in for oncology appointments can take a free pair of earrings - a small but powerful way to encourage patients who are losing their hair and going through other changes beyond their control. (Sometimes it just takes jewelry to make a woman feel attractive, am I right?)
And for Tammy Frank, the woman behind Lobes of Love, it's a tribute to her mother who recently died of breast cancer after a 4-year battle.
I was happy to lend a creative hand in a project that can bring a little joy & beauty to someone dealing with the ugliness of cancer.
