|Scrapbooking event raises money for cancer research|
A new, local non-profit scrapbooking club will combine its members' desire to preserve memories while raising funds for local breast cancer patients and programs during its first fundraising event Sept. 26-28 at the West Monroe Convention Center.
The "Crop 4 The Cure" (C4C) club hopes area scrapbook lovers will attend the event and "scrap" (as enthusiasts say) from 10 a.m-10 p.m. each day. Admission fees are $25 per day or $50 for all three days.
Women who participate in the event will join the ranks of "scrapbookers" nationwide as part of efforts by the Susan G. Komen Foundation, a global breast cancer awareness group. The club hopes to raise $3,000 for the foundation.
C4C founder Roseanne Elg, an avid scrapbooker, said the club was formed when local scrapbookers found themselves talking about how cancer has affected their lives.
"Each of us has a personal story," said Elg. "For some, it's affected us directly or through family members and friends. We've all dealt with all types of cancer crises. Since many of us have dealt with breast cancer issues, we decided that we'd focus our efforts on raising funds for breast cancer patients locally and for increasing awareness of the need for annual mammography screenings and breast-self exams."
The club plans to create a traveling memory book in honor of breast cancer survivors, or in memory of a loved one.
"Scrapbooking has amazing healing powers for women facing the challenges that breast cancer brings," said Elg.
Ann House, a local registered nurse and scrapbooker, believes strongly in breast cancer awareness. Her 88-year-old mother is a breast cancer survivor who has been in remission for five years. House has seen the "devastating effects of breast cancer" but more importantly, the value of early detection and treatment.
