Pink blinged out shell to help conch out cancer

I just love this! You could start something wonderful with this, Brenda! Fantastic idea to give for encouragement to conch out cancer.
From Brenda the teacher from Grand Rapids, MI –

“My daughter and I read your post about the fighting conchs & cancer and it got us to thinking.  In the past 3 months I have had 2 close teacher friends of mine diagnosed with advanced breast cancer.  One of them is my age (38) with 2 small children.

My daughter and I had collected several conchs when we were in Pensacola Beach this spring break, so we got them out, sprayed them pink and added some ‘bling’ as little reminders for our friends that they are strong enough ‘conch’ out their cancer.
Thanks for the great idea :)”

Fighting conchs at Relay for Life Ft Myers 2010

Sanibel and Captiva put our FIGHTING CONCHS to good use to fight against cancer at Relay for Life in Fort Myers last weekend. Cancer seems to touch us all in one way or another so I’m happy that so many Sanibel and Captiva people and businesses were involved in raising money for the American Cancer Society. My friend Lisa with Dorado Property Management was one of the powers behind getting the island involved in this fundraiser. She sent me this link in case any one would like to donate to ACS through the Fighting Conchs.

This post is dedicated to another Sanibel blogger ……Sanibel Toot’s Lazy Days. She lost her daughter to breast cancer earlier this year. My heart goes out to you, Tootie.
