Unless you’ve been living in a cave on a deserted island a la Castaway for the past five or so years, you know that not only is October a full 31 days of ghosts, goblins, fire prevention, and falling leaves, but it’s also Breast Cancer Awareness Month. High risk or not, every woman needs to make sure she gets annual mammograms as advised by her doctor. To remind women and their loved ones about the dangers of breast cancer and being vigilant in an effort to prevent this dreadful disease, Gimmees has a stockpile of pink items that include:
As someone who has been personally touched by this disease – my mother is a 12 year survivor (YAY MOM!) – I always wear my pink attire in October, but breast cancer is in my thoughts the other 11 months out of the year, too. I remember and honor those who weren’t as fortunate as my own mom. And remember, breast cancer doesn’t just tackle women. Although rare, men can get it, too. Visit Gimmees for all of your pink items for this month.
