The War Against Cancer by jstncloud The War Against Cancer by jstncloud
A Susan G. Komen representative runs an organization here in North Carolina known as Biker's For Boobs and I offered to paint something for their silent auction. All of the proceeds go towards the Randolph County Cancer Center.

In addition to this GamesWorkshop donated the models for me (and my friends to paint, no photos of theirs unfortunately) for the auction.

I'd like to give a big thanks to them and I hope that these help earn at least some money for the cancer center.

I made nothing, however the silent auction is this Saturday (still won't know what they went for) but I am hoping someone appreciates the time and effort that I put into these :)

I think the Sisters of battle would have been more appropriate, but good job none the less.

Well done; and I hope the auction gets lots of money.

I painted these particular models for 2 reasons, 1) I cannot purchase models to donate, I am a full time college student who is still looking for a job. 2) GamesWorkshop donated the models to be painted, had they donated Sisters of Battle I'd have painted them, considering this is what I was given to work with, I am happy with the result.

So what is actually cancer awareness...
I mean by now the whole bloody world is aware of cancer...

I understand cancer research needs more money to develop meds, but still.. what is it for apart from that?

"A Susan G. Komen representative runs an organization here in North Carolina known as Biker's For Boobs and I offered to paint something for their silent auction. All of the proceeds go towards the Randolph County Cancer Center."

All the information you are asking about was addressed in my description. These models were painted for a silent auction, in addition to that after having heard the facts straight from Fay Morgan's lips you'd be surprised how many people actually 'aren't' aware of breast cancer beyond just it's name.

[link]

There is an alarming number of women who go through breast cancer and according to Fay if we were able to inform people better we might be able to catch it before it progresses into the later stages (stage 3-4 cancer, where most people are nearly without hope).

Feel free to do some reading, never had someone question a notable cause.

Without looking into it; so I might be wrong; its not just about developing meds, its also about caring for the people that suffer from it; mentally and physically. If you look at some websites - Macmillian for instance, it gives you details and might show you what the money does.

The money from the silent auction is 100% going towards the cancer center in Randolph County, which is good because we could use the facilities.

In addition to this the major issue with Cancer Awareness, and not just breast cancer, is informing people about what exactly it is and more important how to check for it. For example, Fay Morgan came to speak to my marketing class this past spring and I learned about what a cancer lump feels like, and that most people aren't aware of exactly what to look for or feel. In a nut shell if people were more educated we might be able to catch the cancer in earlier stages when it is easier to combat.
