It’s OCTOBER, which means pumpkins, sweaters, cool weather, no mosquitoes (my hometown is full of them in warmer weather), and the best thing of all… Breast Cancer Awareness Month!!!
I am a HUGE advocate of breast cancer awareness. I haven’t had anyone in my family diagnosed with the disease, but I support all organizations that are trying to help find a cure for cancer. My grandmother was diagnosed with ovarian cancer when I was a little girl. I was so young that I don’t remember very much. The only memory I have was visiting her in the hospital when she was very ill. She had a long, tough battle that she lost when I was 10 years old.
I still miss her terribly! The hard battle she fought made me aware of this horrible disease at a very early age. In her memory, I always buy at least one or two breast cancer items every October.. And, that doesn’t include the various perishable items that I purchase at the grocery store (ex: yogurt).
I started scoping out some of my favorite “pink” products for 2013 last month, and here are some of my favorite ones.
Side note: A portion of all the proceeds from the sale of the items goes towards breast cancer research.
