Do things look a little different around here? Do I look a tad bit pink?
That’s all thanks to Nap Warden , she’s turned me pink in honor of my Blogging for Boobs this month.
Today, is October 1st which means it is officially Breast Cancer Awareness Month and I’m on a mission. I want to raise both money and awareness and help find a cure for Breast Cancer.
Breast Cancer is a terrible, insidious disease that knows no boundaries, it can affect virtually anyone.
My MIL is a two time survivor, December 28th will be one year since her last chemo treatment.
A very dear friend of mine in the “real world”, her mom is going through chemo right now and in August, had a double mastectomy. On October 24th, we are walking in a local Breast Cancer walk together.
I have started a donation page on the Susan G Komen website, my goal is to raise $1000.00 this month. Every cent you donate is tax deductible, every single cent that you donate on the Blogging For Boobs donation page, goes directly to the Susan G Komen foundation, my hands don’t touch it at any point.
So here’s what’s happening over here this month. I sent out a query on twitter, letting everyone know that I was dedicating my entire blog for the month of OCtober to Breast Cancer Awareness and the response was overwhelming and beautiful. I am turning my blog over to some amazing people: Survivors, Family Members, Friends and giving them a space to tell their stories. Some of these stories will make you cry and others will make you laugh but all will touch and inspire you.
Some amazing people have offered some great items for giveaways throughout the entire month, too. Every giveaway can be entered with just a comment on how Breast Cancer has touched you personally or how one of the stories told here has inspired you. But, a bonus entry will be given for donating to the Blogging For Boobs Susan G Komen donation page. There is no minimum required amount and I will receive an email with each donation that’s made that will verify the bonus, Thank You, entry.
I am truly honored and grateful to be sharing all of these stories with y’all and I hope that these women will inspire you to take control, get tested, be aware and never ever take a single day for granted.
