Vickie's Chickies

I have a friend. A very good friend named Vickie. She is one of those friends that everyone should have. She would do anything for you, no matter the cost to her. She is in a real fight right now and myself and some other friends are helping in any way we know how.

One of those ways is to walk with Vickie in the Making Strides Against Breast Cancer Walk in October. You see Vickie's fight started almost six years ago with breast cancer. She did really well with that fight and we thought we won. Little did we know that last summer, her cancer would come back in her lungs. She is doing really well so far and we would like to fight to do everything we can to help keep it that way. Research is such a powerful tool.

There is a way you can help us. We are raising money for the walk. We would like our team to come in first place for fundraising. One of our moms at school is a Lia Sophia jewelry representative. She has offered to have a book party for us and give us her 30% commission.

Here is how you can help us.

For Online Orders: Go to and then to the jewelry tab at the top. When prompted for hostess name, enter Vickie’s Chickies, shop using the online catalogs, then proceed to checkout. It’s very easy.

In order for Jessica to close the party and get her 30% commission to us by our walk on October 17, this will have to be a short sale. All orders, online and on paper will need to be placed no later than September 30.

I'm counting on any of you who can to help us. Vickie has been fighting for a long year with things thrown it that no one fighting that fight should have to deal with. Her dad was diagnosed with prostate cancer and her mom had knee replacement. Very unexpectedly, she lost her mom when she fell at her home and suffered a head injury. She has been through too much.

I hope you can help us. Thank you so much for your support. It means everything!


  1. You are such a good person. I know you just did the MS Walk recently and now this. You are a good friend! I hope your walk is a fun one and that you raise good money for the cause. I'm doing the Making Strides walk for the 4th time on October 30th. It's always fun and I still get chills when I stand on the stage with the other survivors! Thank you Lord for letting me be a SURVIVOR!


  2. This is such a good cause. My hairdresser, also named Vicky was struck with brain & lung cancer almost a year ago and after surgeries and chemo, she was told she has it now on her tail bone and leg. She has been on my heart so much and then I read this about your friend. I will check it out.

  3. I've placed an order, Nancy. The jewelry is beautiful but not as beautiful as the cause and your generous and loving heart.

  4. I ordered a beatiful pair of earrings. Every time I wear them I will think of this cause your heart is so passionate about.

  5. I hope to donate once our paychecks start coming in... things are super tight right now.


I love comments. It makes me feel like I know you better. Even if you just say hi, please leave me one!
