October is one of my favorite months! Not just for the pumpkin flavored everything and the chance to incorporate leather into my wardrobe, but also for all of the charity and giving that comes with the Fall season, including Breast Cancer Awareness. Last year, I attended the Fashionably Pink fashion show put on by Phoenix Fashion Week (click here to read all about it).
Just about everyone you know has come across someone in their lives that have had an experience with breast cancer before. In fact, according to The American Cancer Society, there are about 231,840 new cases a year, and 40,290 of them result in death. Showing your support for Breast Cancer Awareness Month not only goes to support the research toward finding a cure, it goes toward helping treat those who are diagnosed as well as educate and screen women for prevention.
Since I’m crippled this year and can’t attend the show to support BCA, I thought I’d show my love by gathering some of my favorite pink things that make it super easy to show your support because of how cute they are! I found some items that give back a percentage of the sale to organizations that support breast cancer research, and some others that are just awesome ways to stand out this October to show your support for BCA.
