Breast Cancer Awareness Month
Happy October, from the Fashionedits.com team! As we start to shop for sweaters, go apple picking, and plan our Halloween costumes, we realize that this is also a time for Awareness. October is Breast Cancer Awareness month.
Breast cancer is the second most common kind of cancer in women. About 1 in 8 women born today in the United States will get breast cancer at some point in their lifetime. And while we encourage women to see their doctors and to do self examination, Breast Cancer Awareness month also gives brand’s and consumers an opportunity to give of their time and money to this very worthy cause.
