Pink is sweeping the country this October to help support Breast Cancer Awareness Month where the focus is on educating and empowering women to take charge of their breast health. As the second most common cancer for women, it is estimated that one in eight women will face this frightening diagnosis. Looking at the celebrity faces of breast cancer drives home this point. Due to the great work of NBCAM and others, more women are winning this battle due to early detection, prevention efforts and treatments. Want to get involved? You can help by shopping for the cause!
The NFL is one of the largest supporters of early detection, reaching more than 151 million viewers last year with their program A Crucial Catch ~ Annual Screening Saves Lives. Support Breast Cancer Awareness Month and your team with NFL wear. In addition to offering products such as the Citizen®Eco-Drive™ Watch benefiting Susan G.Komen for the Cure®, JCPenney’s salons are offering free haircuts and styles to all breast cancer patients and survivors throughout October and will donate $1 for every free cut to The Breast Cancer Research Foundation. Staying healthy in body and soul is key in prevention of all sorts of diseases including cancer. Gaiam products move you towards that goal and the Namaste!
