‘Breast Cancer Awareness’…

…This month is Breast Cancer Awareness month, something very sensitive to myself and our household as my lovely wife Cheryl, was diagnosed with a very aggressive stage 3 form of breast cancer 8 years ago, she was one of the lucky ones – after fighting hard and receiving treatment for almost a year she is still here to be a wonderful mum to our little girl Amber Rose, who was only 18 months old at the time. Yes, we have been left financially crippled but to see her beautiful smiling face every morning is a wonderful thing.

As a result, I have produced a little something and experimented by converting the finished artwork into an animated GIF.

Please post something on Instagram and twitter this month with the hashtag #elcdonates@esteelauder will kindly donate $25 for each post to their breast cancer campaign #TimeToEndBreastCancer– Thank you to @elizabethhurley1 for the information on Chris Evans’ radio show!
