October is one of my favorite months-not for the tricks or treats, or even pumpkins, but because it’s National Breast Cancer Month. The fight against breast cancer is close to my heart because the disease affects so many mothers, sisters and grandmothers like mine. My grandmother passed away from breast before I was old enough to comprehend her story or realize her fight. I pledged to carry on her fight by helping to raise awareness.
Most people are aware of breast cancer, but raising awareness includes encouraging women and men (yes, men can get breast cancer) to take steps to detect the disease early. The sobering statistic is that *1 in 8 women will be diagnosed with breast cancer in their lifetime. Visit http://www.earlydetectionplan.org to learn more about the steps you and your loved ones should take for early detetion.
Now, who says we can’t this fight in style? I’ve teamed up with Stella & Dot to offer you a chance to win a Strength is Beautiful or Inspire bracelet! Here’s how you can win:
- Leave a comment on how you are raising awareness about Breast Cancer this month on this post or on Instagram, include your email address so we can contact the winner.
