October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month

Breast cancer has touched most of our lives in some way.  It has certainly touched mine in many ways.  It is very important for women to get annual mammograms and to do monthly self-breast exams.

LOFT is doing their part this year by offering three different t-shirts with the themes of inspiration, support and strength – three very important words when it comes to fighting the disease and finding a cure.  Also there are three different bracelets being offered.  $5 from each sale goes directly to The Breast Cancer Research Foundation.  Additionally, you can purchase a “LOFT Cares Card” for $25 with ninety percent going to the foundation.   The card gives you 20% off all purchases until November 15, 2011.    Go to LOFT’s Facebook Page, to see all the products and the current donation amount.

If you want to wear an image of a loved one, in honor of, or in memory of them, here is an option created by Painted Society on Etsy where they will personalize a bracelet with your own image.  My beautiful Aunt Chris is featured on this Breast Cancer Awareness Bracelet.  This company was created by my nephew, Joey.  They also make other bracelets with personal meaning, including the serenity prayer.
