Angel Greta's 5th Annual Breast Cancer Awareness Button Giveaway

Hi Friends - Angel Greta here!

In 2013 Mom & I had a special button giveaway for
 Breast Cancer Awareness Month

It was such a great success we wanted to do it again

Despite my unexpected departure for the Rainbow Bridge in 2014
we have continued our special giveaway
 because I let Mom know that I am always here 
- in her heart - 

and we would still do this together

You see 
my Mom is celebrating 6 years as a Breast Cancer Survivor

 I came into Mom's life just a few months 
after she completed her radiation treatments
 and I was an important part of her overall recovery. 

Now each October for Breast Cancer Awareness Month
I always like to share 
my story of .....

How I Became Mom's "Pink" Dog
by Angel Greta
Mom has NEVER liked the coloPINK
her favorite colors are green and purple

 you may have noticed that I
wore a lot of PINK

Six years ago something happened

After having her yearly check up
Mom was told she needed a biopsy

Two days before the start of
Breast Cancer Awareness Month

Mom was told she had breast cancer

Then not only did she not like PINK
Trying to come to terms with the Big C diagnoses
and PINK was in her face everywhere she went.
Surgery was scheduled and followed soon after
 by 6 weeks of radiation treatments

It was then that Mom began to realize
just how lucky she was

 She does her wellness check ups every year
 so her cancer was caught early

 She has a family that loves her and needs her
and she will be here for them

for a long time to come

  Mom realized that during
 Breast Cancer Awareness Month
she can let people know that
early detection saves lives 

so she decided
 to embrace the colo"PINK"

 and that, my friends

 is how I became Mom's "Pink" dog.

Dear Furiends!

 Please make sure your loved ones educate themselves about the risks of breast cancer and the importance of mammograms if they are over 40, earlier if there is a history of breast cancer in the family.
Early detection can make such a difference! 
In recognition of Breast Cancer Awareness Month
we are once again having a little giveaway!

From the Café Press Shop of

we have
 Pug w/pink ribbon mini buttons  
(1” diameter) to send out to our friends

They look great on a blouse, lapel,
 or pinned on a hat (that’s where Mom’s human son wore his).
Maybe you want to show support for someone close to you that is battling this disease,honor a loved one 
or just want to help spread awareness. 
Maybe your peep is a survivor like our MOM.
  We need our peeps to take care of themselves
so they can take care of us!
Those of you that received a button in the past, 
we hope you are wearing it proudly!

If you would like a button
 send us an email with your snail mail addy to
pugranch2 AT msn DOT com
We will send the buttons anywhere in the world!

 We have 20 buttons to give away!

Promoting Breast Cancer Awareness
 has truly become Angel Greta's legacy of love

    Thank you for the very important post.
    Mom is a bit rattled today my human sissy and her hubby are in Las Vegas on Vacation and were at the Concert last night during the shooting. They called us at 1:30 am to tell us they were ok we of course had no idea what was going on.
    Hugs madi your bfff

  7. We are so happy your Mom's health is good now. That must have been some very scary times for her and the family. We still have our button from last year, so please share the love with others who might want one. Mom has it displayed all the time pinned to a small basket on the kitchen counter.

  8. We did the 2017 Komen Southwest Ohio Race for the Cure Sunday, October 1, 2017. It was on our side of town and just three miles away. We were going to wear your pin again this year but darn we could not find it. Hopefully Lee can find it before the end of October. Usually it is kept in the jewelry drawer maybe it got felt on a piece of Fall clothing last year.
    Thanks for being a friend
    Sweet William The Scot

    1. Oh my team raised $9,232 just short of our $10,000 goal.

  9. We were lucky enough to receive the pin last year and is lovely and Mommy wears it with pride. We are glad that your Mommy has been healthly for another 12 months. Our Mom has been healthy too. They were cured by people who gave money before their cancer was detected so we have to keep giving for the next people. Bless you

  10. We are so glad your Mom overcame that terrible disease. Our Auntie Kay is a cancer survivor too and always reminds everyone to get tested.

  11. I just had my mammogram last month and always breath a sigh of relief when it is fine. My button is packed along with all of my desk things in anticipation of selling our house and moving. I can't wait to get it back out and put it where I can see Angel Gretel each day.

  12. Our grandma is a breast cancer survivor too and our mom is always good about doing her yearly checks. Congrats to your mom on another year being cancer free.

  13. Congrats on the 6 year being free from anniversary. Every year is a gift anyway, but especially more so after the Big C has visited. Continue to stay well and keep smiling as you pay 'it' forward. 💜

  14. Dat are a pawesome story Angel Greta and you looked fabulous in pink. We are so glad your Mom beat da big C!! Mama goes and gets her check ups efury year :)

    Matt & Matilda
