There are some amazing organizations out there bringing awareness to a disease that has affected many of us, I feel like every family has at least once cancer story (if not more), but even one is one too many if you ask me.
The National Breast Cancer Awareness Month (NBCAM) organization is a partnership of national public service organizations, professional medical associations, and government agencies working together to promote breast cancer awareness, share information on the disease, and provide greater access to screening services. Please go check out their website if you want additional information or are interested in learning more.
Susan G. Komen for the Cure is another wonderful organization which I have supported for many years now. My Aunt is a two time breast cancer survivor, one time ovarian cancer survivor and one of my best friend's mom's lost the battle to breast cancer shortly after we graduated from high school. I have participated in many of their events and think they are a wonderful cause with a TON of positive people. Again, feel free to pop on over and check out all the information and support they have to offer.
I know there are SO many more companies, organizations, products, etc. that support, promote and bring our attention to this disease so if you have a favorite or one you want other people to know about, please share! The stronger we are by supporting one another hopefully the fewer people we will lose along the way.
Yesterday when I was watching some FOOTBALL I noticed a lot of the NFL items are pink, and I loved it! What a great way to get the word out on the field. Many people think this is just a female disease, but many men are affected as well. So great job to the PR departments and companies who teamed up, I am proud of you! Now hopefully they will auction off their gear at the end of the season to raise some $$$$. Not that anyone that high up reads my blog, but it's **Just a hint**
I wanted to share some PINK flowers that I have taken photos of. These plants are my small tribute to those who fight courageously and those who support them. Know that lots of people are going through your struggles and are here to support you. We are your cheerleaders, and you are our heroes!
