Pink

Today is October 1.  The start of Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

Breast cancer is the most common cancer among women in the United States (other than skin cancer).  I'm sure we all know someone affected.  
October is a time to raise awareness of the importance of early detection.  Millions are surviving this disease by catching and treating it early.  This month is set aside as a reminder to us all to spread the word, encourage our loved ones to get tested and to raise money for research.  So many wonderful events take place during this month, like walks/runs to raise money, the sale of items that donate a percentage to research and even the NFL promotes awareness by wearing pink with their uniforms.
Pink is actually one of our favorite colors to wear.  By wearing pink this month we can all show our support.  We have linked some fabulous pink items below.
