In 2017 my Mom was diagnosed with stage one breast cancer. Fortunately, for her it was caught extremely early during her regularly scheduled mammogram. With a variety of swift treatments she was in remission about one year after diagnosis. It was during this time when I felt more could be done to help those in need battling this deadly disease.
This year marks our second annual fundraising effort towards a breast cancer affiliated organization and have chosen Bright Pink as our beneficiary. Bright Pink is founded on educated and pro-active approach to breast cancer. While 1 in 8 women will develop breast cancer over the course of their lifetime, Bright Pink hopes to reduce those numbers by being proactive. Bright Pink encourages women to learn the role breast cancer has played in their family history as well as having genetic testing for a more accurate risk assessment. Bright Pink also encourages women to self check, schedule regular screenings, and lead a healthy lifestyle with a balance of eating well and exercising regularly.
During the entire month of October we will donate a portion of proceeds to the incredible cause. We hope you are able to donate to this cause in some way or some form. Click here to donate directly to Bright Pink.
