PINK Pins We Love

In honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, this weeks pins are dedicated to all things PINK! 

October is dedicated to raising awareness of breast cancer and educating both men and women on the causes, prevention, treatment and cure of the disease. "About 1 in 8 women in the United States (12%) will develop invasive breast cancer over the course of her lifetime".  Click on the pin to the right for an overview of the myths vs. facts when it comes to breast cancer.

Let's celebrate the lives of survivors and raise awareness for the fighters by embracing pink this month.  Add a little pink to your closet! It may be fall, but colored jeans are still a hit.  Pair the jeans with some pink accessories and you're ready for the day.
