Happy October, y’all! Today is the first day of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, which is a cause that’s very dear to my heart. BCAM is an annual campaign geared towards providing information and support to those affected by the disease through early detection, education, and support services. New research shows that 1 in 8 women will be diagnosed with breast cancer in their lifetime. I don’t know about you, but this statistic scares me– not just for my own well being, but for my friends, my family, and maybe my daughter someday. What we as regular consumers can do is show support for the NBCF, National Breast Cancer Foundation, and do our part to raise awareness.
Every year, I round up all the newest Breast Cancer Awareness products, ie items whose sales directly benefit breast cancer awareness and research. This year I found 24 limited edition gems I know you’ll love. Consider purchasing something for a breast cancer survivor, an early Christmas gift, a push present– the sky’s the limit.
