Bugaboo Challenge- Just Cause


It's Bugaboo Challenge time!
This week we have a fun and creative challenge, Just Cause. That means you can pick any cause you care about and make a card based on it. I have so many I want to support that I couldn't choose. I decided to stay with Breast Cancer since I already had a card made and I know a couple people who have battled Breast Cancer. I'm sure we all have a cause we would like to support.

So I thought I would dedicate my blog post to another cause close to my heart, Kidney Disease.
My kidneys don't function at full capacity. This is due to a rare disease I got as a child which my kidneys were not able to recover from. I don't have any issues today...YAY...but others are not so lucky. People with chronic kidney disease must be on dialysis. This process takes 4 hrs three days a week to complete. This does not end until they get a kidney. Some individuals wait years to get a kidney because the organ list is so long. Dialysis definitely takes away quality of life! I feel everyone deserves to have quality of life! I know everyone has their own beliefs, but I fully support organ donation for this reason!
OK....I will get off my soapbox now. Just thought I would do a bit of advocating for my kidney peeps because I know what they are going through.
(((waving to the kidney peeps)))


On a happier note, stop by The Bug Blog to see the other causes the DT cares about.

What a lovely card and what a great cause. My Mom has had one kidney removed and is always very careful to take care of the good one. I wish you luck and hope that yours will stay well.

Jenny this is a fabulous card! I'm so glad you are issue free, but it is so true how something like dialysis can affect cause of life.
