... And a BIG Thank You to Supporters from our Community!!
On May 24th we held a very successful Certification Workshop at Sam's Studio here in Errington. THANK YOU's go to Stacie-Rae Weir for sharing her passion, knowledge and technique with an amazing group of Participants, Artists and Cancer Survivors!
From Stacie-Rae: ..."after a woman has gone through a journey as life-changing as breast cancer, sometimes she finds it hard to recognize herself in this new body. The breasts and nipples are removed and reconstructed, things will never be the same again.
Areola Reconstructive Tattooing (A.R.T) is going o change the lives of many future candidates, and we are all honored to have been involved in real-time application for 5 individuals!!
Here are a few testimonials from the day:
"~ Cant thank you enough for yesterday. The day was inspiring and I am more than pleased with my result. It was great to look in the mirror this morning and see what was looking back at me."
"The true gift was being with all of you yesterday. The generosity of all of you is an incredible gift, to share your artistic ability to help others this way is wonderful."
"Thank you again so much for hosting the day! I really had the most amazing day and feel so lucky to have been a part of it, and to have met everyone that I met on that day"
"An unforgettable experience and one I will treasure."
"Tattooing cannot heal or fix those wounds and scars, but expert specialist tattooing can go a long way in restoring a sense of wholeness. A group of us girls got together to spend a day learning and sharing our gifts and stories, and just showing how powerful a little bit of tattooing can be."
I was a long and energetic day, and we were well equipped with help from Thrify Foods, Pharmasave, CompassionArt by Shellie Atwood and a Super talented RAW CHEF Deborah Tobin!!
Deborah made us an AMAZING array of lunch goodies and deserts!
Thrifty's sponsored fruit, baked goods, snacks and beverages,
The wonderful team at Pharmasave outdid themselves by providing each participant with a gift card, beauty items and some token s to remember the day!
Shellie made 10 beautiful Rose Quartz MALA bead bracelets so each of us could consider ourselves joined in health and sisterhood!
The total support of our project left us all feeling Connected, Appreciated and Empowered!!
