October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month

Comments off 272 Views0

October is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month.  Timeless Pillows offers beautiful pillows to comfort and celebrate women.

This October, Timeless Pillows.com is proud to participate in National Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Breast cancer is the second most common kind of cancer in women. About 1 in 8 women born today in the United States will get breast cancer at some point.

The good news is that many women can survive breast cancer if it’s found and treated early.

If you are a woman age 40 to 49, talk with your doctor about when to start getting mammograms and how often to get them.

If you are a woman age 50 to 74, be sure to get a mammogram every 2 years. You may also choose to get them more often.

Talk to a doctor about your risk for breast cancer, especially if a close family member of yours had breast or ovarian cancer. Your doctor can help you decide when and how often to get mammograms.

The Celebration Fashion Show in Chico, California, supports the local breast cancer community.next Unknown

The Celebration Foundation is dedicated to supporting the local breast cancer community by providing an inspirational and empowering showcase of the beauty, grace and resilience of life beyond breast cancer. Forty women (and also men!) who have experienced the diagnosis and treatment of breast cancer will model and will be the stars of the next show in September 2019. Although the funds are being raised by breast cancer survivors, they want to share access to the funds with patients being treated for any type of cancer. The first Celebration, in 2009, raised $10,500 for three local cancer organizations. The second Celebration in 2012, raised $16,000 toward the Enloe Compassion Fund to benefit local cancer patients who need special assistance and have exhausted all other resources.

Thirty-nine women who have experienced the diagnosis and treatment of breast cancer will model and will be the stars of the show. Although the funds are being raised by breast cancer survivors, they want to share access to the funds with patients being treated for any type of cancer. The first Celebration, in 2009, raised $10,500 for three local cancer organizations. The second Celebration in 2012, raised $16,000 toward the Enloe Compassion Fund to benefit local cancer patients who need special assistance and have exhausted all other resources.

“When women and men are diagnosed with breast cancer, everyone in their lives is affected by this insidious disease in some way,” said Betsy Sanger, Celebration Event Co-Chair. Charlene Mikeska, Celebration Foundation Founder and Event Co-Chair, added, “The Celebration began as a way to honor and celebrate not only the survivor models in our show but also their families, friends, medical professionals and caregivers.”

Donations to the Celebration Foundation can be given through the North Valley Community Foundation, www.nvcf.org.

Timeless Wedding Ring Bearer Pillows

No Comments 1365 Views0

This week we’re wondering: Where did the wedding ring bearer tradition originate?

ry=60

TimeLess PIllow Ring Bearer Pillow

Handmade with vintage cotton trim

After searching for information,  we’ve found the origin of the wedding ring bearer tradition. Some sources say the tradition was born in Ancient Egypt, where it was customary for treasured jewels to be carried on ornamental pillows during wedding ceremonies.

Others claim the tradition came about during medieval times, when Northern Europeans began to present the bride with her wedding ring on the tip of a sword.  This sounds a bit terrifying, and I’m glad this custom has disappeared!

Perhaps there isn’t one specific event that can claim the origin of the custom, but a cluster of events rolled into one. This is not uncommon in the world of traditions.Though we have seen an uptick in the number of furry friends assigned to deliver rings down the aisle, it is safe to say the majority of ring barriers continue to be young boys who are related or close with the couple. On average, most ring bearers are between 4 and 10 years old.

Timeless Pillows creates handmade ring bearer pillows that can be made from family vintage linens and are special to the bride or the groom and to their family.  Such a pillow becomes a keepsake and a decorative pillow to keep in the home.  This special pillow was created from grandmother’s linen handkerchief and the colors of the wedding party. It is a treasured pillow now for the bride and groom. Vintage fabrics in a Timeless Pillows brings new life to those that might be tossed away. Enjoy the tradition of the ring bearer pillow!ry=400

Home care items should be as natural and organic as possible. Look for products like these that are great for recovery from radiation or chemotherapy. Alba lotions are botanical and have wonderful scents. Biotene is important for recovering from dry mouth which can be a result of radiation treatments. Any of these products can accompany a Timeless Pillow gift and several are small enough to slip inside the pocket found under the buttoned side of the pillow.
