This is a pin I designed for a dear friend of mine. Two Ribbons intertwined to form a heart. Tami and I went through our treatment todether and it stands for the strength, courage, and hope she gave me. It stands for the support help and care from family, friends, doctors and all caregivers. For with thier help we can “Survive Together”.I am getting ready to celebrate 6 years. Tami passed in 2005 just before the pin was produced. Just before she passed, I promised her she would make the pin happen and give her the first prototype and first pin. I made the prototype from bakable clay and she passed the day after. From that day I have dedicated my spare time and all proceeds from ALL of my art to help wipe out this terrible disease. I had the pin design copyright protected in 2005 and I would love to see it everywhere to honor survivors and thier caregivers.
At her funeral I gave her husband and children the prototype and he asked me to pin it on Tami, to keep my promise. He told me she couldn’t wait to see it. I was touched that he asked me to do this. I know she would have loved it. After the pin was produced, I gave him and Tami’s mom the very first pins.
