3 Ways to Show Support for Breast Cancer Awareness Month


Chances are, if  you are reading this, then you most likely know someone who has been affected by breast cancer. More and more women are surviving this disease and more stories of hope are coming to the surface. If you have lost someone to breast cancer, then my heart goes out to you. I am sure October is a difficult month for you. If you are reading this as a survivor (like my mom!) then more power to you. I am sure this month is empowering for you, giving you a chance to encourage other women who are currently walking down this road.


Show Your Support

Whether you are a cancer survivor, know a survivor or simply want to show your support for the furtherance of breast cancer research there are several ways you can show your support this October which is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. 

Wear Pink
Be bold. Whether it's a pink shirt, headband or dress, you can offer your support by simply stepping out in your pink garb. Show others that you indeed are aware of how many are affected by breast cancer and that you support the efforts to find or develop it's cure.

Display the Pink Ribbon
This past spring, a man ordered a metal, hand forged, decorative ribbon from my husband's blacksmithing business. He was planning to paint it pink and give to a woman he knew battling breast cancer. When she received the gift, they were so thankful and the husband was even brought to tears. Unless you've experienced it yourself, there really isn't a way to relate. But you still can show you care. The pink ribbon is a universal symbol of hope and compassion for everyone involved.


Support Cancer Research
The charms brand Glamulet was launched in 2014 to offer to every woman a new range of trendy and elegant quality jewelry at an affordable price. Half of all process go to charities that support breast cancer. If you want to help support breast cancer charities, then you can show your support by purchasing these affordable, glamorous charms.
