The month of October holds very special meaning to us females because it marks Breast Cancer Awareness Month, an annual campaign to increase public understanding of breast cancer, the second-leading cause of death among women.
Whether you have lost someone to the fight, or you’re young women just learning how serious it is to check yourself, this is your chance to wear the pink ribbon and spread the message. Breast Cancer Awareness Month is the best way to come together nationally to support those on this difficult journey and search for a cure.
October reminds us that we’re all blessed with beautiful bodies and the importance of popping into the doctor’s office for an annual checkup. While Breast Cancer is the second most prominent cancer found in females and can be very nasty, the severity is incredibly decreased if detected early on. Our breasts are our best friends and it’s important that we know them inside and out so that if something funky were to appear we could share it with our doctor. Luckily, it’s so simple to check yourself, that it would be senseless not too. Join us in the mirror, and if you notice any unusual size, shape, color, discharge, lump, or soreness, definitely bring this to your doctor’s attention.
It’s amazing how much pink can be spotted in October, and the multiple ways that we can personally advocate for this cause. In doing their part to join the conversation and help find a cure, a number of amazing brands have debuted products in the month’s signature color — pink —while others are offering special promotions.there are thousands of companies that pitch in to encourage the cause by offering promotions to support Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Here at Style Salute, we’re vowing to make a difference this October by shopping these companies through our love for all women, health, and great style. Remember, even the smallest contribution can help change a single life. Plus, it’ll feel great knowing your purchase is going toward helping those affected.
