Love Your Sister and SBM

Connie Johnson is dying from breast cancer. Amongst her many roles as a wife, a mother, a sister, Connie is also a scrapbooker. Together with her brother Samuel, they have founded a charity, Love Your Sister, to raise funds for breast cancer. You can read their story and make donations HERE.

Because Connie is a scrapbooker, Scrapbooking Memories magazine has joined forces with Love Your Sister, and each year publishes a 'pink' magazine, the focus of which, is breast cancer awareness.

As with previous years, the masters were commissioned to create and/or decorate journals to be given to women who had terminal breast cancer. The journals are given to Love Your Sister who then hand them on to the women they would best suit.

Be extraordinary
published in Scrapbooking Memories Vol 18 No 5

It wasn't an easy project to do, knowing your journal would be given to someone who is dying. I hope that the woman who receives my journal can feel the love with which it was made. That it will be something she can use and treasure, and that one day, when she is gone, her family will hold dear.

Please do two things today .. check your breasts, and make a donation to Love Your Sister. And say a prayer for Connie and women around the world just like her.

  1. This is simply gorgeous...I'm sure whomever receives it will feel the love. Connie & Sam are brilliant to shine the light on such a worthy cause. I've spent the past 2 years being 'support' to a friend going through breast cancer...the statistics are scary, as is the disease!
