As an ovarian cancer survivor my mission through these cards is to help spread awareness about this deadly disease. I hope to help women everywhere become familiar with the signs, symptoms and risk factors. Had I known this information my cancer may have been detected years earlier than it was. Who knows? I just want to help spread the word, one card at a time!


In 2012, ovarian cancer occurred in 239,000 women and resulted in 152,000 deaths worldwide. This makes it, among women, the seventh-most common cancer and the eighth-most common cause of death from cancer. The typical age of diagnosis is 63. Death from ovarian cancer is more common in North America and Europe than in Africa and Asia.[

Purchased this item a few months ago but never recieved it and according to the seller, never will. ( Even though it is marked as shipped). When I contacted the seller to question why I had not received the item. I was told " I was to purchase another item within 3 days of making this purchase ( I paid $1.25 shipping and the little card was a pif item that I paid the amount listed) or I would not receive the item or a refund. I really feel ripped off. Who does business in this manner? I would like my money back, that I received NOTHING for!!! I, of course will NEVER do business with this seller again and I would advise all other's to stay away from this seller as well. I have never had a single problem on Etsy, until now. Not a very nice way to pif, pay it foward. More like, pay for nothing!!!

Lisa Walker purchased a PIF item from my store on July 16th 2016. The first thing you see when you look at a PIF item description is the PIF rules:(((PIF RULES: You may purchase ONE "PIF" item from my store per day with a minimum purchase of any other item. This allows everyone to have a chance to "Pay It Forward" & share a smile.)))I gave her a chance to purchase a regular priced item and instead she got mad at me and posted a very negative review. I mailed her the card and paid for it out of the National Ovarian Cancer Coalition fundraiser money that this page is made for. I messaged her and asked her if she liked her cad-No response. I messaged her and asked her to remove this negative feedback-No response. Because of one mean spirited person I am removing PIF items from my store as of today.

About

Breaking the Silence one card at a time

Sleeping Princess Cards began with the need for MANY Thank you cards and a only little bit of cash. I had just begun the biggest journey of my life. I was diagnosed with late stage Ovarian Cancer and had been hospitalized, far from home for over a month. I had not been able to work and neither had my husband. My family & friends rallied around me and with the help of the community, they held fundraisers for us & I needed to send out more Thank You cards than I could fathom!
In the next few months as I began to recover at home I started to teach myself how to make Thank You cards! Well that turned into an addiction that couldn't be stopped. I have now made over 8000 greeting cards and with each card order I send out I include awareness information provided to me by the National Ovarian Cancer Coalition.
I donate 50% of the money taken in from sales to the NOCC. The remaining 50% goes back into paying the paypal fees and buying card supplies.
There is also a Sleeping Princess Team and we walk every year with the National Ovarian Cancer Coalition in Pittsburgh Pa. We Celebrate my life and that of all of the other survivors. We also honor those who have lost the fight and promise to fight on in their memory. The Sleeping Princess Team has raised over $21,000. so far for the NOCC and we continue to fight on.
