Just poppin' in to shout out that it's October and Breast Cancer Awareness month.
About 1 in 8 U.S. women (about 12%) will develop invasive breast cancer over the course of their lifetime.
A man’s lifetime risk of breast cancer is about 1 in 883. Ref: Breast Cancer Org.
-Annual women's check-up with your OB/GYN
-Annual mammogram once you turn 40
If you know anyone that is a survivor, please give them a call/text/send a card/ and let them know how much they mean to you and you are happy they kicked cancer in the butt.
Also if someone you know is going through Breast Cancer, set up reminders to check in on them and help them out even if it's dropping things off at their front door. With no visitors and being extra careful with COVID-19, they may be lonely and also very tired from treatment.
Custom Box Spotlight
This custom gift box is from a group of girlfriends.
✨Each gift has a purpose. Although it may be obvious, a gift tag on each item shows the thought behind each gift.
✨Showing support by researching what could be helpful to them during chemo treatment is very thoughtful.
✨Things to help her keep warm, nausea, hydration inside and out, an activity, and most importantly, her support system.
❓You may be wondering, where is the pink? The giftee hates pink so I used her favorite colors blue & green.
💝 Five percent of my sales proceeds this month will be donated to Breast Cancer Resource Center in Austin TX. They supported one of my friends who had Breast Cancer and I want to support them.
