Emotionally and physically exhausted from this heartbreaking experience, I needed to put this topic out of my mind for a while. I stopped designing for the cause and moved on to other things, more pleasant thoughts.
But this subject is never completely gone from my mind and lately I’ve been feeling the urge to take up the cause again. There is some sense of purpose when designing for a cause that does not only effect people but animals as well.
Lucky was diagnosed with lymphoma. When this cancer effects young pets it is often very aggressive. While there are several categories or types of cancer in lymphoma, Lucky’s type was one of the deadliest and most aggressive types of cancer. If I would have known then what I know now, I would have done many things completely different.
You can read in Lucky’s Story how absolutely outraged I was, when I realized how cancer treatment in pets is very different from people and incredibly deceptive. It was emotionally devastating and I learned a terrible lesson.
I avoided my own website for quite some time and stopped working on it, because it was incredibly painful to remember all that happened with our sweet puppy.
Lately this subject has been on my mind, taking up the cause once more by creating awareness for cancer in pets and people as one of my top priorities.
While I love designing in general and tried to focus on other projects, there is a different motivation, passion and focus when designing for cancer support and cancer awareness. To understand the meaning of cancer ribbons look here: Cancer Awareness Ribbon Color Meaning.
Here are some of my old and more recent designs.
