Showing off your pink pride during National Breast Cancer Awareness Month is a favorite thing to do with survivors and supporters alike.
Thousands of hats, shirts, and other pink breast cancer items are sold in October. Millions of tiny pink ribbons are worn to support the cure for breast cancer and hope for many women.
Also, countless numbers of people show support of Breast Cancer Awareness by participating in fundraising events. Have you joined a local support group? Joined efforts with other supporters to hold a fundraiser or night out?
