Support Breast Cancer Awareness Month (My Favorite Pink Things)

It's National Breast Cancer Awareness Month.  Unfortunately, most of us have or will be affected in some way by this disease.  The statistics are really alarming: 
  • About 1 in 8 women in the U.S. will develop invasive breast cancer over the course of her lifetime.
  • Caucasian women are more likely to develop breast cancer, but it's more common in African-American women under the age of 45; Black women are also more likely to die from breast cancer.
  • About 85% of breast cancers occur in women who have no family history of breast cancer.
  • Besides skin cancer, breast cancer is the most commonly diagnosed cancer among American women.  
It's a terrible disease and we all can do our part to support research, treatment and health education.  Start by "purchasing with a purpose" by buying pink products that support the cause.  Here are a few of my favorites:
