Ladies I need your help! My oldest sister passed away last summer from pancreatic cancer. I read a thread from one of you who has breast cancer and just started cryin' all over again. No body should go through what I saw her suffer with. I have no words to describe what I saw. After last summer I decided to do something about it.
I am raising money for one of the cancer research organizations and want to incorporate purple into all of my bows. My cousin is one of the vice presidents of The VanAndel Institute in Grand Rapids Michigan. They do wonderful stuff for all kinds of cancers and have a great kids program too. My sister was a teacher and will be honored by my helping where I can.
The color for pancreatic cancer is neon purple and I was hoping you might be able to post some pictures of purple strings, accessories, and other ideas to 'trick' my bows out. String combinations, wrist slings, etc. would be super helpful. In general any idea would be welcome. I am using purple fletching on all of my arrows. Thanks in advance!

I feel your pain, I lost my sister to pancreatic cancer 17 years ago and I can still remember her taking her last breath and the pain finally draining from her face. It breaks my heart, a very cruel cancer it is.
