October is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month, and I encourage you to visit the NBCAM site in October and regularly throughout the year for updates, information and resources.
Last week I was at the airport in a souvenir shop. The assistant was very chatty and led me to a display of Japanese-made ceramic kitchen utensils. His sales pitch was very convincing but what cinched the deal was the pink peeler. A portion of the sales goes to breast cancer research. Plus the lovely bright pink will be easy to spot in my drawer.
I haven't had anyone in my family affected by breast cancer (touch wood) but these days sadly you hear it mentioned so often. My thoughts go out to those who have lost someone, who is battling cancer or caring for someone affected.
