One More Day Campaign | The Modern Fort | Cancer Awareness

Three years ago when I was scrolling my Instagram feed I read something that touched me. Something that made me think a littler hard and feel a little deeper. This something was the launch of The One More Day Campaign. The Modern Fort and Arrow House joined forces to raise awareness and money for those fighting cancer. That year I bought my first of my three OMD sweaters, knowing that the money I was spending was going to a cause that meant something to me.

When I attended their launch event last year and each of us went in a circle sharing who we were and what that campaign meant to us, I was touched. One stood out in particular of a girl who had lost her sister to cancer. I couldn’t imagine. I refrained from imagining. I felt heart broken for her as that would be harder then words can express.

Then the month before OMD launched this year we got news that my sister has cancer. It brought this all back. (see her update here)

But the thing is, my sister is not the only one who is battling cancer, there are so many people. Too many people. So thankfully, for people like The Modern Fort and Arrow House that step up, we can make a change. We can come together to support these people. This year they are specifically raising money in support of moms with cancer.

Partial proceeds from each pullover will be going back to surprise some deserving moms in our community. With goals to plan a retreat like feel for these woman to feel loved and blessed. They give so much of themselves to others (such as their families) before they give to themselves.

Another campaign objective to raise awareness for early detection – “seriously… check yourself,” says Joanna of The Modern Fort. They also aim to provide emotional support to moms currently battling the fight of their lives as well as create an inclusive environment for moms to support one another in a journey such as this.

  • Pretty sure I’m going to be getting my eyebrows microbladed next month. Been wanting to do this since I was pregnant with Evelyn, would love to hear your thoughts on it below 👇🏻👇🏻
  • Winter days that remind me of summer are my favourite.
  • As the weather gets nicer I am planning on getting out more and more with these two, side by side in our @bugaboostrollers. I found trying to go for walks for exercise with Sophie out of a stroller doesn’t amount for much exercise. It included a lot of rock discovering, bench sitting and flower sniffing.
•
What are some ways you plan to increase exercise this year?

  • One of these teddies is not like the other ones.
  • Those lights were put up with the holiday decor, but they haven’t found their way down yet. Thinking they might have moved in for good 😆
  • Ezra has been gone for the past few days (almost a full week). It’s been so strange not having him around and the girls (and us of course) miss him so so much! Sophie’s asked me everyday when he’ll be back (his Mom took him to Disneyland for his birthday, lucky guy!). Tomorrow is back to routine and smothering Ezra in all the birthday love cause he’s coming back a 9 year old! 🎉 🎂
