Cancer: Wear It With Pride.

It amazing to see how fast the month of October has gone by. In fact, its almost Halloween! Everyone is probably in the process of getting the perfect Halloween costumes and planning outrageous and scary parties. In the time that we have been caught up in the hype, we overlook something greater worth celebrating. For those who may not be aware, October is being celebrated as Breast Cancer Awareness Month.
 
I've been fortunate not lose anyone to the horrible disease, but it is still a heart breaking experience to hear the stories of those who have fought the strenuous battle and did not make it. It might not have been breast cancer, but the world recently lost a man that not only revolutionized the way we thought, but how we functioned through communications and technology. Steve Jobs, left an impression that is exemplary and a character that everyone should aspire to attain.
 
Here are some interesting statistics about breast cancer.
  • 15% of women with breast cancer, has a family member who was diagnosed with breast cancer. In fact, a woman's risk of getting breast cancer is twice as high if a first-degree relative (mother, sister, daughter) was diagnosed with the disease.
 
  • In 2011, the expected death rate of women who were diagnosed with breast cancer in the US was estimated at 39,520. This is regardless of the fact that death rates have been on the decline since 1990.
  • Age and gender are the most significant risk factors with breast cancer. Women, especially older ones, can be vulnerable to this disease.
 
  • It has been shown that gene mutations (abnormal changes) inherited from the mother or father can be linked to 5-10% of breast cancer cases. 
 
  • White women are slightly more likely to develop breast cancer than African-American women. However, in women under 45, breast cancer is more common in African-American women than white women. Overall, African-American women are more likely to die of breast cancer. Asian, Hispanic, and Native-American women have a lower risk of developing and dying from breast cancer.
 
For more facts about breast cancer, please visit www.breastcancer.org
 
I'm very proud to see how everyone has been trying to support the cause but this battle is far from over. We not only need to be aware of the disease, but we need to start focusing on the causes as well as educating people about it. In the mean time though, you can share your support through breast cancer-inspired jewelry. You can purchase one for a survivor, someone you know with the disease, or in memory of someone who fell victim to it. If not, just wear it simply for support. Someone recently bought be a Payless coupon in support of Breast cancer. With the coupon, it also came with pink stud earrings as well as a cancer ribbon earring. In the video below, are some great jewelry ideas in support of breast cancer.

I love this blog because it hits so close to home. Even though it focuses on breast cancer awareness and education it brings to the fore-front the need to bring about awareness on other issues and illnesses that are affecting women and how we can rally around each other to combat these issues. I'm a fashionista at heart so I'll definately be showing my support for breast cancer with the makeup ideas you suggested!
