Courage Is My Strength!

Hello friends! I hope you're having a great day!  I created this card using a set of stamps from Unity Stamp Company: Ippity Stamps the set I used is called Courage Is My Strength.  A perfect card for someone who just might need an awesome pick-me-up!

How does breast cancer grow and spread?

To grow, malignant breast tumors need to be fed. They 
get nourishment by developing new blood vessels in a 
process called angiogenesis. The new blood vessels 
supply the tumor with nutrients that promote growth. 
As the malignant breast tumor grows, it can expand 
into nearby tissue. This process is called invasion. 
Cells can also break away from the primary, or main 
tumor and spread to other parts of the body. The cells 
spread by traveling through the blood stream and/or 
lymphatic system. This process is called metastasis.
When malignant breast cells appear in a new location, 
they begin to divide and grow out of control again as 
they create another tumor. Even though the new tumor 
is growing in another part of the body, it is still called 
breast cancer. The most common locations of metastatic 
breast cancer are the lungs, liver, bones and brain.

Don't forget Ippity Chick - Mary's Creative Journey and 3 Girl Jam are sponsoring our LUFP Challenge No. 4
Winners for both July giveaways and Challenge No. 4 will be announced on Friday, August, 3rd.
