As you may know, October is Breast Cancer Awareness month. This is a huge month for raising awareness to the most commonly diagnosed cancer in women. Did you know, 1 in 8 women will be diagnosed with breast cancer in their lifetime? It seems unreal to me that a disease like this still doesn't have a cure.
While breast cancer doesn't affect my family and I directly, I do have quite a few friends who have had to cope with family being diagnosed. Enough is enough, and as a social and loud generation, we need to do all we can to raise awareness, and find a cure.
Throughout this month tons of brands, restaurants, and sports teams will show their support for Breast Cancer Awareness by wearing pink and giving portions of sales to help the cause. While this is all important, of course, it is also important to educate yourself on the issue- here is a great fact page from the National Breast Cancer Foundation. Supporting the cause is maximized when you're actually educated about the issue.
I'm proud to be teaming up with Glamulet on their Pink Limited Edition Charms, which were created to support the Breast Cancer Awareness Campaign. For every set of Pink Charms added to your cart, 50% of what you spend is donated directly to breast cancer charities. I highly suggest checking out their Pink Charm selection, they're affordable (actually, they're on sale right now!), and fit all major brands of charm bracelets.
I'm also loving their complete bracelets, which are also on sale, and in stock!
The most important part of this month is educating yourself and learning about ways you can help the cause. I encourage you to take time out to explore ways you can support Breast Cancer Awareness and help to empower women from this deadly disease.
