Fresh Picks to Follow: Breast Cancer Awareness

Happy Friday everyone!  I hope that you all are looking forward to the weekend.  I just realized earlier today that I haven’t posted anything yet for the month.  So, here it is – finally.  I’m sorry that I’m a little behind.  Lately, my job has been consuming most of my free time.  I’m so excited that it’s October – this month is one of my favorites.  When I was younger, I grew up in New Jersey.  What I loved about October in Jersey was the fall weather, watching the leaves change colors, picking fresh apples, Halloween and my sister’s birthday.  Autumn in Florida was definitely adjustment from my life in Jersey.  Fall usually gets started in Florida sometime in October.  So now that October is here, I’m looking forward to running more outdoors, watching more football, hanging out with my sister for her birthday and breaking out my fall wardrobe.  Are you looking forward to any fun activities this month?

Anyways, I wanted to focus this week’s Fresh Picks to Follow on an issue that touches so many people’s lives.   As many of you know, the month of October is designated as breast cancer awareness month.
One thing I wanted to do is bring your attention to a few organizations that promote breast cancer awareness and research 365 days out of the year.  The Breast Cancer Research Foundation® is dedicated to preventing breast cancer and finding a cure in our lifetime by funding clinical and translational research worldwide.  Susan G. Komen for the Cure is a global leader of the breast cancer movement, having invested more than $1 billion since inception in 1982.  Men Against Breast Cancer (MABC) is the first national non-profit that provide national support services to educate and empower men to be effective care givers and helping men cope with the impact of a loved one's breast cancer diagnosis and treatment.  National Breast Cancer Awareness Month (NBCAM) organization is comprised of several national public service organizations, professional medical associations, and government agencies working in partnership to build breast cancer awareness, share information and provide access to screening services.  And lastly, the National Breast Cancer Foundation is an organization that is focused on saving lives by increasing awareness of breast cancer through education and by providing mammograms for those in need.

I currently work part-time for a retailer that donates a portion of the sale proceeds on certain products towards breast cancer research.  It’s wonderful to work for a company that is dedicated to helping the community and bringing awareness to this cause.  Today, I wanted to highlight some major retailers that also do the same.  Check out my top 10 breast cancer awareness products for this week’s Fresh Picks to Follow.  Do you plan to work with any organizations to promote breast cancer awareness this month?  Let me know.
