Let's SQUASH cancer!

My Mom had breast cancer five years ago and I feel so lucky that she is a survivor.  She has triple negative so she has a high risk of recurrence so we are so fortunate it has not returned.  She participated in a clinical trial, and went through a lot.  She is on vacation right now, and that always gives me a reminder of what it would be like to not have her in my life since I feel that I should not call her during her time away.  That is soooo difficult for me since we talk every couple of days or at least I know she is available.  When she is on vacation, I have this panic that she isn't around.
For this card, I used the wonderful image from Imagine That Digis by Kris which also happens to be our image for this month's progressive challenge.  If you join the challenge you can get next month's image for free.  the patterned papers are from TLC.
