Go PINK!

If you haven’t noticed we’ve gone PINK here at Fillmore Container! We’ve been giving away a pink Cuppow every day this month, and we are excited to announce a new pink giveaway. First, we’d like to congratulate the winner of these adorable pink cozies (from goodkarma), Mason jar mugs and pink Cuppows.Pink Mugs Cozy Cuppow

Shelby C. shared with us that she’d be thinking of her great aunt Ethel, who is a survivor.  Here’s what she told us about Ethel.

My great aunt, Ethel, is my grandmother’s youngest sister. She was diagnosed with breast cancer in the early 1970′s and was treated with a mastectomy. She is currently 94 years young, and lives in an assisted living facility. When you want to visit her, you need to call first to make an appointment because she is constantly on the go doing morning exercise, ukulele lessons, walks, arts and crafts, day excursions, and constantly watches any sports games and keeps track of the players, their statistics, and games performances.  She is definitely a strong, amazing, sharp woman!Pink Straws Mug Giveaway

    My dearest cousin was recently diagnosed. Anything that I can do to help, I’ll do.

    As I sip from a pink cupow I would think of my cousin who is currently battling. She is just a few years younger than me and I pray daily for her recovery.

    My mom is a 7-year survivor, however I lost both a cousin & a great-aunt to breast cancer back in the 90′s. Anything I do in the name of pink is always for them… and in hopes that someday no one has to wear a pink ribbon because there won’t be any more breast cancer. Or any cancer.

    My sweet mama that I lost to cancer when she was only 62. She fought a tough battle. Love that you are honoring those lost with pink.

    My lovely aunt! She found her own lump shortly after getting a clear mammogram and fought the whole disease. Definitely a role model for being strong and never giving up.

    I would think of (and even share with!) my dear friend Daphne. Daphne’s mom passed away from breast cancer when she was young. Daphne was diagnosed with cervical cancer a few years ago and beat it but was told she had an 88% chance of getting breast cancer. Daphne chose to go with a full masectomy to lower her chance to 4%. She has been dealing with these ongoing medical procedures for 5 years now – yet she has the most positive and beautiful attitude! I can’t even imagine how she does it but she is an inspiration and I love her!

    I’ll think of my friend Jill, who is currently fighting breast cancer, and a family friend Judy, a survivor.

    In memory of a dear family friend who lost the a long fight more than a decade ago.

    I have a colleague who is back at work after surviving breast cancer. She is very positive and always trying to eat healthy!

    It seems strange to remember my mom’s cancer survival with cups and lids, but I do like to remember that my mom SURVIVED.

    My good friend and co-worker just finished radiation. To honor her, I’m running a 5K in May (and I don’t run!).

    My biggest hero and breast cancer survivor, is my Aunt Agnes (Peachy). She is an elderly woman, who is probably the most modest person I know. When she told me that she felt a lump in her breast, she said that she was too old and too embarrassed to have it checked out. My daughter, who was listening to the conversation, said “Please don’t die, Aunt Peachy.” The look on her face was priceless. She got up, kissed my daughter, and picked up the phone and made an appointment with her doctor. It turned out to be cancer, for which she had a mastectomy and radiation, and now, 5 years later, is going strong. The fact that she had it checked out, out of love for my daughter, and not herself, makes me appreciate her being here with us every day. What an amazing, selfless woman.

    Sweet woman I work with has gone through treatment for breast cancer and happily still with us today. She’s had a partial mascetomy and embraces herself despite the change in her appearance which makes me smile that she still holds her head high and doesn’t miss a beat despite all she’s been through.
