National Breast Cancer Awareness Month: 10 Products We Love That Support Breast Cancer Research

Posted -

October is the month of leaves changing colors, Halloween and the color pink.

Everywhere you look this month, you'll see evidence of the many charities that support breast cancer patients, treatment and research as the color pink takes over everything from lip glosses to home appliances.

We know that as a collegiette, you're naturally strapped for cash. However, this month you can buy almost anything you'd normally need with a breast cancer ribbon on it or in the product’s pink version. Help someone and get a pink yoga mat or nail polish? Perfect.

But seriously – it's unfortunate, but we all know someone whose life has been affected by this awful, awful disease. Take a moment this month to buy one of the products featured below, or any product whose profits go to a breast cancer charity, to help those in need.

We’ve scoured the choices and found these 10 items we absolutely love that support Breast Cancer Awareness Month.
