This design drive is a benefit fundraiser for our amazing, smart, talented and loving designer, Mya Daily-Haddix. We recently found out that Mya needs to have a surgery done to remove a cancer from her arm. We have come together to put these designs together for anyone to purchase. 100% of the proceeds go to Mya and her family to help pay for the medical costs.
We are also doing a giveaway on ourFacebook group. Please join the group to get more details.
Also Mya has posted this on her Group Page to give you a little more insight of her story. I hope we can raise enough money to help them pay for her medical bills and not be under too much stress.
"My devoted lil Nurse Ratched Group. I want to provide you an update and a little education. Please read this all to know where to find your free file.
I have always been a person with multiple freckles and moles but in 2017 a larger spot showed up on my right forearm. In 2020-2021 the spot started to change in color and shape.
A couple weeks ago I visited a dermatology office and they performed a shave biopsy at that time and sent the lesion to pathology.
So now for my portion of a PSA for you. There are 3 primary types of skin cancer:
1. Basil cell - very common, easily treatable, slow growing, typically removed in office by freezing or cutting out.
2. Squamous cell - 2nd most common type of skin cancer, also typically treated by removal in office. Grows faster than basil cell but also still slow growing.
3. Melanoma - the most invasive of skin cancers. Can grow rapidly and typically treated with surgical removal and may require additional treatments if spread.
My biopsy came back as a malignant melanoma. I was immediately referred to a surgical oncologist. I have seen him and will be undergoing surgery of my right forearm on Thursday this week. They will be removing a large section of my right forearm. Plastic surgery may be needed but for the moment will have to have an open wound until able to get to plastics - - due to COVID there is a 3 month wait.
I am right handed so therefore - - designing and lots of computer use over the next week or so may prove to be difficult.
Therefore I will be unable to fulfill any custom requests until I put it back out there. Thanks for your understanding."
*WE LOVE YOU MYA* Stay Strong! You got this and we got you!
