There aren’t many months that I enjoy more than October. There’s a chill in the air that allows me to bring out my favorite sweaters and sweatshirts from the closet, but it’s not too cold to prevent me from enjoying all the seasonal activities. But October is more than fun fall festivities.
As many know, October is national breast cancer awareness month. According to the American Cancer Society, about one in eight women, approximately 12 percent, in the United States will develop invasive breast cancer during their lifetime. With numbers like this, it is no wonder that many events and charities are around to support education and awareness about this disease. But highly talked about events aren’t the only ways people are showing their support.
