Many of us know a man or woman that has lost someone to Breast Cancer, is currently undergoing treatment or is a breast cancer survivor.  October is around the corner and as many of you know is Breast Cancer Awareness month. We can do our part by supporting our loved ones by  donating to a cause or purchasing a product where the proceeds go to charity.  Pink is back in fashion in more ways than one, it is making a comeback in interior design, our clothes, paint, etc.  There are products for everyone.  If you are in need of a birthday gift, a just because gift,  a hostess gift, etc., think pink. What a great way to honor the women in our life. This could be any one of us at anytime and the more we can fund research the more we can help save each other.  

This post is for the fabulous women in my life:  my Jersey girl Rosie, my new BFF Rita from Beantown (don’t mess with her), my colleague in New York, Atalie ( a New Yorker with great determination), Dawn Banks, and Laura’s (my great friend) mom, Diane Tlapa.  You are the strongest and bravest women I know.  May God continue to bless you with great health and for those of you that still endure, the strength and will to fight each day to overcome breast cancer!

Today, I honor YOU and all the women, moms, friends, that face this challenge daily!  See Below some great finds and little and big ways we can help!
