2016 Keepsake

Continue to celebrate the courage of those affected by breast cancer by proudly displaying a Making Strides Against Breast Cancer holiday ornament!  Here are the details: 

  • You can select from three options for the front of your ornament and fully customize the back, including choosing from existing designs or uploading your own photo.
  •   The ornament is 3 inches in diameter and includes a white ribbon to hang it on the tree.
  •   Each ornament is $12.95 (plus sales tax, shipping & handling).

Pre-order by November 22 for delivery the week of December 5. All orders placed by December 9 will be delivered on or before December 23.

Even better, proceeds will support American Cancer Society mission and programs – so your team will make an even bigger impact with each order.
