Stamp Out Breast Cancer? Let’s!

Vanessa, Marketing Manager at A Muse Studio

Hi ladies, I have some HUGE news to share with you today!  We all know someone who has been affected by breast cancer… a sister, mother, friend.  But the good news is that now more than ever, breast cancer is highly treatable through early detection!  Simply put: early detection saves lives, and spreading the word is something all of us behind A Muse Studio are deeply passionate about, so we knew we needed to find a way to encourage and empower women about this vital health issue—what better time than Breast Cancer Awareness month?

For the month of October, our goal is to reach 10,000 women by giving away 10,000 American Cancer Society breast health info pamphlets with a fun, coordinating Fight Like A Girl stamp set!

You can order your set here!

The breast health education pamphlet you receive with Fight Like A Girl contains info about conducting monthly self-exams and other considerations we each need to know to stay crafting happy and healthy for many years to come! And you can use the set’s push pin stamp on your calendar as a reminder for your monthly self-exam, mammograms, and doctor’s appointments. How fun!

We’re asking $3 to assist us with shipping costs, with an expected delivery time of 6 to 8 weeks. Since our goal is to reach 10,000 women with these fabulous resources, we ask each woman to order one set only please, and to tell everyone about this campaign!  You can connect with us to find out more about Stamp Out Breast Cancer throughout the month via our Facebook page and at our new blog. Simply ‘Share’ or ‘Like’ our campaign posts to let women in your network know about Stamp Out Breast Cancer and how to receive their free stamp set and health brochure!

To celebrate you and your power in sharing the news about this campaign, we’re offering a beautiful Pink Pack’ to those who leave a comment. (Our hope is that you will share this info with all the crafty women you love—the more participants we have in this giveaway, the more women we reach with important breast health info!) In your comment, please let us know what part of ‘Fight Like A Girl’ inspires you and/or share an idea for rewarding yourself for conducting your monthly self-exam.  I can’t wait to read your ideas!

Comments are due by 9:00 am (Mountain Standard Time) next Wednesday, October 10, 2012 to be eligible to win the Pink Pack from A Muse Studio.


Congratulations to our winner!

    Here’s how I would remember to do a monthly exam: Pick your favorite number between 1 and 30. We all have one number that’s special! Circle it on the calendar and draw some petals to make it into a flower. Let that be your reminder to be good to YOURSELF that day and do your self check. As women, most of us put others first and ourselves last, but not this day. Treat yourself!

  2. Pamela J says:

    The “Fight Like a Girl” stamp set inspires me to be more diligent in encouraging others to be healthy. You can not put a price on good health. Thanks for all the information!

  3. Rachel says:

    I’ve been trying to order the stamp set, but it keeps asking for consultant info and I don’t know any! How do I get past that part of the ordering process?
    Thanks!

  4. Melinda Wilson says:

    The Hope and I Support You is such an inspiration. I lost my sister-in-law who was like my own sister this past week from all the horrible effects of breast cancer. She fought for 19 months and it was Hope and Support that got her though this time of recovery and treatment.

  5. Sarah says:

    For me the words Breast Cancer hits hard. We found out that my mom has been diganosed with Breast Cancer they did surgery and removed it. She has recovered very well. She is a ture fighter!

  6. Chris F says:

    Rachel – you should be able to enter your state or ask for a list of consultants in your area at the end. If you still can’t get in that way, I think if you click on my name here, it’ll take you to my blog, which in turn will take you directly to the website and allow you to order. Good luck! It’s a great set and I hate that it may be frusterating for you to get it…

  7. THANKS for making this a GREAT WAY to draw awareness and creating NEW joy through this hobby of ours!! I have a mother-in-law who just made it through a relapse!! She had been in remission for 13 years and it had came back in a nodule that was under the scar tissue from her original radical mastectomy!! She had reconstruction with implants done and it came back in the scare tissue!! THANKFULLY she follows her checkups closely and they caught it before it spread!! She is once again in remition and I hope it stays that way!! =) THANKS for the chance to win and have a FABULOUS WEEKEND!!

  8. Chajurie Van Driel says:

    I love your magazine and all the wonderful ideas your Design Team creates! Thank you for Free Font Friday and how its easy to get new fonts!

  9. Barb Wild says:

    My identical twin sister has triple negative breast cancer and so far so good after radiation and chemo, i give her so much credit….she works so hard to act like nothing is wrong but she has always been a fighter. i would love this set!

  10. Stephanie C. says:

    This stamp set is amazing! More than ever I think it’s so important to support each other in this horrible disease. The stamp set is PERFECT for creating something that will lift those up that we care about so much.

    Thansk for the giveaway!

  11. Thanks for the inspiration!! I remember monthly self exams because I want to remain healthy!! I have 3 beautiful kids and a husband who need me. That’s all the motivation I need.

  12. Robin says:

    What a great way to celebrate survival and awareness!

  13. Rachel says:

    Thank you Chris! That worked! I got it ordered.
    I did try to find a consultant in my area, but there were none.

  14. Stephanie Harris says:

    Thank you so much for the inspiration and great way of bringing awareness. We women need to take care of ourselves! Isn’t it crazy: 1 in 5 people know someone or has had or has breast cancer…

  15. Carmen says:

    The problem I have with the saying “Fight Like a Girl” is that men are just as likely to develop breast cancer and I don’t think I’ve ever heard much about how they should conduct breast exams. That said, I have a couple of friends/family that are breast cancer survivors. I think the best way we can reward ourselves is by doing something that inspires a healthier lifestyle – buying a new pair of running/walking shoes, buying a “gourmet” vegetable or fruit, etc.

  16. tape says:

    To me the best reward would be to schedule some time to create!

  17. Debra Nuebel-Shaffer says:

    Fight Like a Girl! It’s so very true! I was diagnosed with Stage 3 breast cancer & underwent chemo/double mastectomy/radiation beginning July 2009. May 2010, my mom was diagnosed with stage 1 breast cancer & underwent a double mastecomy. Then December 2011, I was told my breast cancer had matasitized to my bones (stage 4) so I must fight this deadly disease every day. I fight daily and this stamp set will be used to make cards that encourage newly diagnosed breast cancer survivors to also fight like a girl! Thanks A-Muse for helping spread the word that early detection can save lives! I used my birthday (28th) to do my monthly exams, and I found the lump that lead to the diagnosis that changed my life. I am a fighter and continue to inspire others to do self-exams because it can save your life!
