October – National Breast Cancer Awareness Month

13 Oct

Pink Ribbon

October is National Breast Cancer Awareness month. Breast Cancer affects many many people. According to the National Cancer Institute website these are the current statistics:

Estimated new cases and deaths from breast cancer in the United States in 2012:

  • New cases: 226,870 (female); 2,190 (male)
  • Deaths: 39,510 (female); 410 (male)

Chances are good that you have been affected by Breast Cancer or you know somebody who has been affected. It is devastating to live with.

Two years ago I participated in the Avon Breast Cancer Walk for the Cure! It was an incredible experience and I felt grateful to be able to help with the fundraising process as well as do over 26 miles in the walk.  Last year during October I gave 1% of all product sales to help fund Breast Cancer Awareness and Research. I intend to do the same this October as well. It is a way of giving back a little bit to help a cause I truly believe in.

I want to encourage you to visit the Blue Twig Studio website and if there is something you are interested in, please purchase during October. Your purchases will help me to give a larger check to Breast Cancer Awareness and Research. It is a cause I fully support.
