Please join the fun with us. This is going to be a FUN auction with many Fun pieces of art. All the proceeds go to cancer research to find a cure for cancer.

Just in my family cancer has taken 5 people. There aren't very many of us left :(

Please join our auction!!
Join Us September 23rd-27th Here on this event page!!!

We are a group of mostly women crafters and so many of us have been affected by cancer in one way or another. About 1 in 8 U.S. women (just under 12%) will develop invasive breast cancer over the course of her lifetime. Breast cancer is an increasingly prolific disease but the cure is coming! We here at Angela Holt Designs believe this and want to help make it a reality.

Did you know…...
Breast cancer is the most common cancer among American women, except for skin cancers. About 1 in 8 (12%) women in the US will develop invasive breast cancer during their lifetime.
The American Cancer Society's estimates for breast cancer in the

United States for 2013 are:
About 232,340 new cases of invasive breast cancer will be diagnosed in women.

About 64,640 new cases of carcinoma in situ (CIS) will be diagnosed (CIS is non-invasive and is the earliest form of breast cancer).

About 39,620 women will die from breast cancer
After increasing for more than 2 decades, female breast cancer incidence rates began decreasing in 2000, then dropped by about 7% from 2002 to 2003. This large decrease was thought to be due to the decline in use of hormone therapy after menopause that occurred after the results of the Women's Health Initiative were published in 2002. This study linked the use of hormone therapy to an increased risk of breast cancer and heart diseases. Incidence rates have been stable in recent years.

Breast cancer is the second leading cause of cancer death in women, exceeded only by lung cancer. The chance that breast cancer will be responsible for a woman's death is about 1 in 36 (about 3%). Death rates from breast cancer have been declining since about 1989, with larger decreases in women younger than 50. These decreases are believed to be the result of earlier detection through screening and increased awareness, as well as improved treatment.

At this time there are more than 2.8 million breast cancer survivors in the United States. (This includes women still being treated and those who have completed treatment.)~ Information reported from the website

Did you also know:

That a drug therapy cure is close at hand for certain types of breast cancer? Go here to read more about it! Here’s the highlight of his work…

Dr. Alexzander Asea developed NamPEVA.
In pre-clinical tests, the drug killed cancer cells without attacking the body.
It also trains the body to keep killing them after treatment.

With that in mind, Angela Holt and several of the Design Team members have decided to present an auction on the final day of our Breast Cancer Awareness week. The auction will be held on the event page and you can bid through the comment area under the auction item(s). The auction will begin at 9:00am CST and end at 5:0opm CST. All proceeds will be donated to Dr. Asea personally by Deb Ochs-LaGrone who lives in Temple, TX where Scott and White’s Cancer Institute is located. It will be well documented and pictures taken so you can be assured that your money WILL go for his research.

On our FB fan page we have 557 members as of today. That means that of those fans, 70 of us will develop this horrible disease. Won’t you PLEASE join us for an auction that will benefit those that develop it and the world as a whole? It takes small steps to get there and we aim to be part of that!

With love and hope for a cure,
The Angela Holt Design Team
