The “Wear it Pink” headline is everywhere—in social media, on the streets, in businesses and schools, and in the fashion and cosmetic industries—all to support breast cancer awareness for the month of October.
Jennifer Bourn, an accomplished designer and brand strategist, states, “The color pink is the color of universal love of oneself and of others.”
Women are resilient, beautiful and warriors. We do it all! As women we lead, we support and we are multitaskers.
The pink ring bbon is an international symbol that unites all of us, showing our conquering spirit and support—bringing different nationalities, races and genders with varying political and religious viewpoints, together in support of a common goal. We want a cure for cancer!
Most of us have lost loved ones, or know someone close to us living with cancer or someone who has recently been diagnosed positive.
Many celebrities have become advocates of breast cancer awareness and research, such as Christina Applegate, Elizabeth Hurley and Rob Lowe who each lost family members to breast cancer. There are many other celebrities who are advocates for and/or survivors of breast cancer.
Celebrity Kate Hudson states, “I’m really honored to have been asked to to be an Ambassador for Fashion Targets Breast Cancer for a second year.
Many Fashion Designers and Cosmetic Companies, such as Bobbi Brown, have developed special collections or products to offer their customers and donate generous amounts from the proceeds to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation.
The Beauty Blender donates 50 percent of Beauty Blender Bubble ($20.00) to Breast Cancer Awareness.
Dolls, if you have a family history of cancer, let your doctors know. There are early detection, gene tests you can take; BRCA 1 and BRCA 2. Enjoy living a healthy lifestyle and get mammograms to reduce the risk of developing breast cancer.
