October is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month

Don't forget - October is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month. According to the National Cancer Institute, 1 in 8 American women will be diagnosed with this disease in their lifetime.

Twisted Ribbons has a couple of new things to show support for this important reminder.

$2 from the sale of either of these two items will go directly to the Susan G Komen fund, supporting the research for the cure of this disease. These are both listed in my Etsy shop. I will make the donation, along with our family's donation at the end of October.

This disease has affected our family directly, as it has many others. If you are not already familiar, please review the risk factors and prevention methods appropriate for yourself, and your family on the Komen site.
