Let’s get to know the latest batch of our blogger partners who shared their experiences and insights for Breast Cancer Awareness Month by decorating trees and foliage as a tribute to this worthy cause.
Holly of Our Holly Days
A lover of holidays, a stationery addict, and one who considers food as her love language, Holly Sosa of Our Holly Days started her blog after losing her eldest son, Liam, back in August 2008. She is a mother to a blended family, and promises that she is no evil stepmom.
Holly believes that “Breast Cancer Awareness Month is a time where we can empower men, women, and families with knowledge and awareness towards a disease that affects millions.” Years ago when her son started preschool, she developed a close relationship with a fellow mother who battled breast cancer while pregnant with her son, her boy’s classmate. “Her strength through it all, astonishes me even today. She’s a testament of strength, true faith, and a mother’s unending love.”
Bharati of Techie’s DIY Adventures
A happy wife and mom of 2, Bharati Suragimath is the writer behind Techie’s DIY Adventures. She is a software engineer who loves working on DIY projects and “believes in decorating homes with more creativity and less money“.
For Bharati, Breast Cancer Awareness Month is a time “to spread more awareness on breast cancer as early detection is the greatest prevention.” She lost one of her dearest aunts to the disease and wishes for more awareness in developing countries through self-examination, early diagnosis, and support groups.
Christina of Mom’s Messy Miracles
Christina Shirley of Mom’s Messy Miracles is a wife and doting mother of 2 who loves food, fun, travel, and “the craziness that is life in a house of boys“.
She believes that “Breast Cancer Awareness Month is a reminder of how common breast cancer is and that we desperately need to find a cure.”
Krista of The Quinntessential Mommy
A wife and mother to two young children, Krista Quinn is also a part-time English teacher, writer, fashion consultant, and book lover. Her blog, The Quinntessential Mommy, chronicles her life as a busy mom, and showcases her love for turning simple things into something special. On it, you can also find book recommendations, recipes, and DIY tips, among others.
Krista went through a scare when she found a lump in her breast. It later turned out to be benign, but that experience has colored her insights on cancer. She shares that “Breast Cancer Awareness Month is the time to focus on raising awareness and letting women know that breast cancer doesn’t care how old you are or what your ethnicity is.”
Ericka of It’s a Long Story
It’s a Long Story is where Ericka Long shares her DIY tips, favorite recipes, home décor inspirations, and stories about her daily life. This active blogger is a wife and considers herself a mom to her adorable pooch, The Admiral. In her spare time, she loves playing sports, keeping busy with crafts, and spending time with loved ones.
She shares, “Breast Cancer Awareness Month is a time to remember those who have lost their fight and those who are still fighting, while continuing to try and find a cure.”
