Your help is requested for a wonderful cause :)

Hello Friends,

I am in need of your help. One of my very sweet customers, Tammi Atkin, has a niece who was recently diagnosed with cancer. Julie has been on my mind for a while now and I wanted to do something 'special' for her.

I have decided to donate 20% from all online orders during September and October to Julie Neff. (If you personally know Julie or Tammi, 20% off your 'e-mailed' order will also be donated.
I will be taking part in the annual "Strides for Life" walk for Breast Cancer in October in SLC, UT and along with my Aunt Ruthie's name, Julie's will be added.

I am also selling handmade cards for this wonderful cause too. All packs of cards are $20 (full amount will be donated to Julie). There are 10 cards in each pack. Your choice of : Birthday/Thank You/Get Well/Thinking of You or an assortment of your choice.


Here is some information Tammi shared about Julie:

Julie Neff is 33 with a 4 year old and a 9 month old. She was diagnosed with a rare aggressive type of breast cancer, only to be diagnosed two weeks later with metastitic stage 4 ovarian cancer. This would be hard for anyone to handle, let alone a young mother. Our family and friends prayed and fasted for her. She had her ovaries removed two weeks after her diagnosis. When they tested her ovaries they found no trace of ovarian cancer, and there was nothing in her spine. Our family was very blesed to witness a true miracle. Now Julie just has to fight her breast cancer. She is determined to raise her babies and grow old with her husband. And her family and friends have no intention of letting her do any differently. We are doing everything we can to keep her here and to keep her spirits up. She has been so touched by the generosity of family, friends and complete strangers. This has given her strength when she is tired and trying to fight her battle.

To place an online order, please go to http://www.stampwithmax2.stampinup.net/ and click "Shop Now" in upper right hand corner.

Maxine what a wonderful thing you are doing for your friends. Please direct Julie to breastcancer.org. I too am fighting breast cancer and it has been such a support and comfort for me to communicate with others who are going through the same thing.
Breast cancer is becoming an epidemic and we need to find a cure!
