Breast Cancer is unfortunately a disease that has probably impacted either you or someone close to you. It shows no discrimination on the women it chooses to affect. Both Sarah and I have grandmothers who both underwent double mastectomies from breast cancer. My grandmother eventually passed and it really pushed me to be an active participant in charity functions, marathons and in purchasing my Pink products whenever I see them. October is the National Breast Cancer Awareness Month and is dedicated to increasing awareness of the importance of early breast cancer detection.
What can you do? Make sure you’re doing self exams every month. Make sure you’re going for your regular mammograms. Help support finding a cure by purchasing PINK products and wearing them as reminders for you and for others.
Some of our favorite Companies are making Pink Products; White + Warren, Dabney Lee and Beyond Yoga and give a percentage of their proceeds to Breast Cancer charities.

** Pink ‘i am beyond…’ water bottle $36 with twelve different empowering words to choose from.
** Pink ‘i am beyond…’ lift & support Bra $64
This is by far the nicest water bottle I’ve ever owned. It keeps my liquids cold without making the outside a watery mess. The white outside bumper keeps it from sliding or easily being tipped. The handle is great for me always running around with my daughter; you can even clip it onto your diaper bag. For $36 you can have a gorgeous water bottle that will last you while helping to find a cure for breast cancer. Sarah chose the “i am beyond… supportive” bottle and I chose the “i am beyond… grateful” bottle. Which will you choose?
30% of all proceeds of the sales of these items to be donated to the Women’s Cancer Research Fund – a program of the Entertainment Industry Foundation which ‘supports innovative research, education, and outreach directed at the development of more effective approaches to the early diagnosis, treatment and prevention of all women’s cancers’
