Pink is the color for October

Jo Malone's COMING UP ROSES Red Roses Collection

October is a great month. It’s the time of year when things start to gear up pretty much everywhere ( the kids are well into school, events are buzzing in the city, and abundant harvesting in happening in the country, to name but a few) and nature starts to slow down. Its also a time to rally around an all important cause that affects so many—October is the Breast Cancer Awareness month. Breast cancer is the leading cancer in women nationwide and each year it is estimated that nearly 200,000 women will be diagnosed with breast cancer alone. I don’t know about you, but my family has not been spared from receiving the devastating news of testing positive for the disease. But it needn’t be the end of life, clearly with all the advances in screening technology and early detection, more women are surviving and thriving. My Mother in law is a testament to how positive thinking and proactive action can save a life. She is one thousands of resilient women who have survived, but the tragedy is that every year,  there are still so many who don’t.

How can you get involved?? Many beauty and fashion brands support Brest Cancer Awareness Month by creating limited time only product as well as donating a portion of the proceeds to several BCA charities and foundations. They act big by putting their money where their mouth is  and by supporting this cause they become leaders in the challenge to find a cure. With this in mind, I ask you to take a look at the sampling of product available this month and think about doing something that’s not only good for you, but will also assist these important foundations who are diligently working to find the cure that could help save millions of lives.

Think Pink!
