It’s October and it’s Breast Cancer Awareness Month.
Breast Cancer is deadly and it has affected so many friends and family. My mother is a survivor of not just one occurence, but two. My grandmother was not so lucky. Both my stepmother and stepmother-in-law had recurring cancer which eventually took their lives. So many of my friends have fought the good fight — and fortunately, have survived. Musicians, dancers, librarians, artists, wives, mothers, good people.
So many advances in diagnosis and treatment have happened over the past 30 years, in large part due to increased awareness and grassroots funding. So much more needs to be done.
So in honor of this important cause, I’m participating in Glitter.Gloss.Garbage’s Blog Hop to wear something pink every day.
My pink: a glitter art ribbon.
If you live in San Diego, I will give you a pink glitter art ribbon for any amount of a donation; all proceeds from each ribbon will go to Susan G. Komen for the Cure . You can find me at Seaport Village (between the Carousel and Dave the Balloon Guy) on Sunday, October 7 and Sunday, October 14.
If you are a blogger, or just want to join in the fun, click the pink box and hop on board!
