Pink Breast Cancer Awareness Sugar Cookies
Well, it has been a while since I posted. In November I was diagnosed with breast cancer. From that point forward things moved very quickly. Now I know what Dorothy felt like in that tornado – things whirling in fast motion and taking you to a place you weren’t expecting. Except I didn’t go to see the Wizard, I got to see lots of doctors.
For what it is, I feel very blessed. I caught the cancer very early and was diagnosed with Stage 1 breast cancer. I only had to do four rounds of chemo. I had my first round on December 20th. I kept telling people it was my Christmas Chemo.
In February I finished my last round of chemo and to thank the wonderful nurses that worked with me, I decided to make them cookies!
Of course I had to do pink breast cancer awareness cookies. I did pink ribbon sugar cookies. And because I had recently purchased some new fancy frame cookie cutters I wanted to do sugar cookies with the words that are associated with breast cancer – Faith, Hope, Courage, Strength.
I tried to tie the pink ribbon on the bag to look like a pink breast cancer awareness ribbon.
I tried to do some with a little different design. The words on the pink and white didn’t show up very well, so I added a little glitter to them so see if I could make the words pop.
I am very thankful for the many caring medical professionals that I am working with. The sugar cookies were just a small token that I could give them to tell them thank you for everything they have done so far.
