porcelain dish necklace by Lime in the Sky

I’m always game to say a big fat f*ck you to cancer. I’ve seen it ravage people and families (including my own) and I’ve seen it look like it could destroy a person, only to watch them rise up and destroy it even when their doctors gave them no hope (read Bailey O’Brien‘s story. She is nothing short of amazing and is completely inspiring). Still, even the most amazing survivor stories include a whole lot of pain and turmoil. Cancer seems to be everywhere and, like most people who have been touched by it, I hate it.

Since October is breast cancer awareness month, I figured it was the perfect excuse to tell cancer where to go. I’ve put together a little roundup of handmade goodies that give back. The artists behind each of these pretties donates at least some of the proceeds to a cancer charity.

Run forth and purchase, my people! Or, you know, click over and drool a little on your keyboard before supporting a good cause and scoring some awesome for yourself.
