Shop For The Cure


October is Breast Cancer Awareness (BCA) Month!

Relieve your daily stresses with some retail therapy that supports other women in need of your help! 

According to the American Cancer Society, 1 in 8 (12%) women in the US will develop invasive and non-invasive forms of breast cancer during their lifetime.
1 in 8! That's you, me, and a few of our close relatives and friends. In my family, we have been hit twice by this leading cancer affecting and killing women of all ages.
My mother and my grandmother were diagnosed with invasive breast cancer in their later life, and although recovering from it, the enormous weight it places on their heart and the hearts of those who love them can outweigh an elephant.
 If you or someone you love is fighting breast cancer, my prayers and thoughts are with you. Nothing compares to a family in need and bonding through prayer.
PLEASE do what ever you can to be properly screened and get your mammogram done. This disease does not discriminate, and can affect women as young as 23 years of age and older.  Take proper precautions and do self breast exams to detect early warning signs. Consult your family doctor to learn more about this.

"Breast cancer is the second leading cause of cancer death in women, exceeded only by lung cancer. The chance that breast cancer will be responsible for a woman's death is about 1 in 36 (about 3%)," as stated by Cancer.org.
There are many reputable sources out there to learn more about this disease and I encourage you to do some research. If you would like to make a direct donation, share your story or share about someone else's however, please click onto the Susan G. Komen foundation's website by clicking here.
