October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month!

Think PINK this month!

My aunt was diagnosis with breast cancer at the tender age of 30. I have witness the effects of breast cancer and have seen my share of tears. I have also been able to see how the human spirit is able to triumph in desperate times of need. I have seen hope strive and I now believe in second chances.

This is why I donate to the Susan G. Komen for the Cure and why I urge my fellow sisters, mothers, and grandmothers to get annual check ups.

This article is from the Susan G. Komen’s website:

I hope this story inspires you.
Nancy G. Brinker promised her dying sister, Susan G. Komen, that she would do everything in her power to end breast cancer forever.
In 1982, that promise became Susan G. Komen for the Cure and launched the global breast cancer movement. Today, Komen for the Cure is the world's largest grassroots network of breast cancer survivors and activists fighting to save lives, empower people, ensure quality care for all and energize science to find the cures. Thanks to events like the Komen Race for the Cure, we have invested nearly $1 billion to fulfill our promise, becoming the largest source of nonprofit funds dedicated to the fight against breast cancer in the world.
