Quick update

Yesterday afternoon, Yen went into surgery to have her tumours removed and we were truly surprised to hear that she DOES NOT have breast cancer! She went through a thorough test last week and results have shown that the tumours are benign. Her oncologist, Dr. Cua has managed to remove all the tumours in both breasts which resulted in a gruelling 6-hour surgery.

Yen is now recovering at the Makati Medical Centre where she will be for the next few days before she goes back to her province of Legaspie to rest and fully recover.

We are very, very relieved and glad to know that she is not faced with breast cancer! Thank you to everyone who have been keeping her in your thoughts and prayers throughout and especially to those who have contributed towards paying for her surgery. Everyone has really been so kind.

Let's wish Yen a full recovery and we hope to see her at Shabby Chic again soon :)

Thank You

Dear everyone,

Firstly, we'd like to say a BIG 'Thank You' for those who came by on Monday. It was indeed very, very touching to see a large number of scrappers come give their support and words of encouragement to Yen before she embarks on a life-changing journey.

We are glad to say that on Monday, we made a total sale of B$2,244.92 and all proceeds will go directly to Yen's medical funds. She has been very moved by the cards and personal donations which she received as well and wishes to say 'Thank you very much' to you who has touched her heart. She also says she will do her very best to stay strong and recover quickly so that she can come back to be with us again. 

Let's wish Yen a safe and speedy recovery and keep her in your thoughts and prayers. 

Thank you, scrappers.

You are all truly amazing.

Reaching out

It saddens us to even begin writing this post.

Our ever-helpful and cheery Yen has recently been diagnosed with breast cancer. 

She will be leaving us soon to begin her medical treatment in Manila. We hope and pray that she will recover fully and join us here again at Shabby Chic. We would like to help her by dedicating the proceeds from sales on Monday, 9 March 2009 to help pay for her medical costs. If you wish to donate personally towards her medical fund, we are setting up a collection on her behalf and we would truly appreciate your kind generosity.

Please keep Yen in your thoughts and prayers as we wish her a speedy and safe recovery. 

Thank you very much for your support.

From all of us at Shabby Chic,
Irene, Bev, Lyn and Yen
