Breast Cancer Awareness

acspc-026658October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month!

Unfortunately, we all know of someone who has had or has breast cancer. This is a terrible disease that we will not stop till there is a cure.

Wear Pink in support and join the fight against Breast Cancer!

Want to make your own ribbon? Follow these directions I found on the American Cancer Society website.

*make your own pink ribbon lapel pin; no sewing required. Finished size: 1½” by 5/8″.*

You can shop for the cure as well…

On News 12 there was a segment called: Raise money for breast cancer awareness with Think Pink products. There are great products you can purchase that proceeds go straight to Breast Cancer Research.

“This is not only a month of remembering, but also educating everyone about breast cancer. Women are encouraged to get a breast cancer screening at one of many locations on Long Island. Not only are women affected by breast cancer, but men are too and included in celebration of their survival and mourning those who have not.”

So lace up those shoes and get walking/running for the cause!
