#BloggersforBCA

Happy October friends!

I am so excited that my very favorite month of the year is here!

Today I am thrilled to announce a campaign you might see floating around the blog-world this month: Bloggers for BCA.  As many of y'all know, October is Breast Cancer Awareness month. According to breastcancer.org, 1 in 8 U.S. women will develop invasive breast cancer over the course of her lifetime and about 40,000 women in the U.S. are expected to die of breast cancer in 2014. And finally, about 85% of breast cancer incidences occur in women with no family history of the disease. Those statistics prove that each of us is likely to be impacted by breast cancer at some point in our life, either fighting through it personally or knowing someone who is.

That being said, Bloggers for BCA is all about spreading breast cancer awareness throughout the blog community.  Today I am excited to share some ways that you can give back and help support breast cancer research through one of my favorite hobbies:  SHOPPING!

Below you will find many products that work to raise BCA!

  1. Such a worthwhile post. My mom is a breast cancer survivor. She was diagnosed when I was 13, so I was still relatively young and sheltered from it. Another one of my good friends' mom was diagnosed last year, and it was tough to watch her go through that. It is a disease that impacts so many of us.

  2. I always love supporting various breast cancer charities in October by buying up specially-made items. I have great-aunts on both sides of my family who died from the disease, aunts on both sides who are currently in remission, many family friends in remission, and a high school friend who died almost 2 years ago when she was not yet 30. It's a terribly disease that affects almost all of us and I'm happy to be able to do my part to find a cure!
