October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month!

There are only a few days left in October...

Show your support by rocking Breast Cancer Awareness gear. $4 will be donated to Surviving , Inc or Lived2Tell for every breast cancer awareness themed item in my shop. These are non-profit Breast Cancer organizations doing great deeds in the Atlanta-Metropolitan area.

So far we have raised almost $100!!!
Here are a few of the Breast Cancer Awareness items in my shop:

Surviving, Incorporated (www.survivinginc.org) assists local doctors in providing comfort to their patients through one-on-one home visitation, Utility Assistance, payable to utility companies, Grocery/travel and Rent assistance payable to Apartment complexes, and respite care to soften the hurt and pain of being diagnosed with breast cancer.
LIVED2TELL (www.lived2tell.org)is a non-profit organization whose objective is to help alleviate people's fear of cancer and to encourage and educate women to get mammograms. The founder of LIVED2TELL was 24 years old when she was diagnosed with breast cancer. Therefore, she wants to educate adolescent and adult women about the importance of doing breast self examinations and instill in them the necessity of monitoring any changes that occur in their bodies.
