**Note**
Since unforseen circumstances in 2010 led to me not being able to complete the Book of Hope, I am making a 2010-2011 Book this year with the pages that I have kept safe from last year and new pages from various paper gang peoples.  I'm excited to have some new people join the project and will be posting the pages that arrive in the next few weeks before the 2011 Relay for Life which will be on June 25 this year Smiley

For the past 4 years I have been involved with our town's Relay for Life, a cancer fundraiser that is very important to me as not only a survivor (almost 8 years woo hoo!) of cancer but also as someone who has lost people I love to this disease (my mom, my aunt, my uncle, friends....)  Currently my aunt and a family friend are both fighting breast cancer as well and I am more determined than ever to do all I can to help beat this freaking horrible disease.  In 2008 I invited some of the paper gang to participate in a Book of Hope....thus was born a 3 year tradition!  

The first Book of Hope was raffled off to one of the Survivors at our very first Survivor Dinner in 2008.

The second Book of Hope 2009 was raffled in a fundraiser by my team, which raised $630 towards our team's final fundraising total of over $15,000!

This year I have asked my fabulous artist friends to contribute to the Book of Hope 2010 and here is the start of the best book yet!  Front pages only (the backs are gorgeous too but have everyone's personal info on them...)this Book of Hope is in a bird theme and will go into the Silent Auction that we are having on event day!

I thank all of you wonderful artists for participating again in this project, you are truly AWESOME!!

I encourage everyone to check out the Relay for Life which is the largest non profit fundraiser in the world and has thousands of events taking place across North America in the next month.

I'm so insanely lame that I forgot to make a page.  Roll Eyes I'm going to get it in the mail this weekend and keep my fingers crossed that it makes it to the great white north on time.

I really love how it turned out. Its one of those pieces that just fell together without much help from me. Do you want to wait until you get it or would you like me to post a pic of it?

Aww I wish I had known about this ahead of time. My dad is currently battling prostate cancer. I'm seeing him this weekend to hopefully cook him some meals so he has less to worry about.

These pages are GORGEOUS. Great work ladies.

I'm sorry to hear about your Dad raerae.....

Thank you. The doctors are very positive about his recovery but it still worries me. I'll be visiting him this weekend. Hopefully I can be useful and fix some dinner so he has less to worry about. I think I may do an altered book to get the negative feelings out because I have been refusing to express them in my artwork.

You ladies are always very inspiring. I'm forever in awe of your work. Cheesy

It is hard not to worry, I think doing some kind of altered journal would be really helpful for you.  And as someone who went through my own cancer battle, someone fixing dinner is one of the best gifts around Smiley

So glad to participate again this year! Great pages so far!

I'm really happy to be able to create something to raise funds for cancer research. Since I sent my page my step-mother (a non-smoker) was diagnosed with lung cancer. I lost my grandmother to breast cancer. It's so rampant a disease it feels good to do anything proactive about it. I think alteredmommy's annual Book of Hope is a beautiful thing.

The page from fishstikks is beautiful!  I love that you chose a bird theme this year!  I know that whoever gets the book will be comforted and inspired by the work and love put into each page...

AM--can't wait to see the final product...I know this year has been extra tough for you...but you stepped out of yourself and prevailed...you should be commended for your efforts and definitely for inpsiring all of us to put forth our best effort...thanks for including me...my heart is with you and all of your fellow volunteers, and of course, all of the survivors and their families!

I just wanted to post here that unfortunately I had NO time to bind up the Book of Hope before our Relay.  I had to take over a number of committee positions at the last minute and just couldn't get to it Sad  But I will be storing all the pages in a safe place for next year and will get it done early so the fabulous book can be included in the silent auction.  Thank you to all the generous artists who sent in a page, you gals ROCK!!

Our Relay for Life raised $120,000 this year, with over $1000 just from the silent auction.  Woo hoo!!!!

What a fantastic cause, and what gorgeous pages everyone has done for the book. Best of luck for your fundraising.

We have a similar event over here in the UK called Race for Life, which I'm running in the same weekend as you have your relay.

I've finally come to an understanding with my scanner and was able to upload the 3 new pages I've received from microjivvy, loves2experiment and Wulf.  Thanks for your fabulous pages Smiley

Great pages added this year. I'm always awed to be in such company! Embarrassed  I hope the postal strike doesn't hold up any of the other latecomers.

I'm so late in updating this thread!  The night of our Relay on June 25 was rainy and cold so we didn't see have the crowd we were hoping for.  But the Book of Hope went for $50 in the Silent Auction, everyone was raving about it! It was bought by the sister of one of our Relay team members who is currently in treatment for cervical cancer.  She LOVED it!  I can't find the pictures anywhere that I took of the covers I made- they were blue with a mini frame that had a tiny bird on a nest of shredded book pages.  Thanks again everyone for participating Smiley
