Think Pink!

October is just around the corner, and that means it's Breast Cancer Awareness month!  Many of your local businesses will be doing something to raise money for the cure of breast cancer. One of my neighborhood salons offers clients a temporary pink highlight in hair that only costs $10 with half the proceeds going to cancer research.

I donate $25 to a former client of mine who walks in pink women's apparel down Main Street, Seymour to raise money for breast cancer along with other men that have local businesses in the area. In fact, the whole town has a night called Paint The Town Pink where the businesses stay open late offering some kind of promotional item with partial proceeds going to breast cancer research.

I try to volunteer or participate in as many events as I can.  I've said it a million times, but it makes me feel good to do this because I feel like I'm making a difference. Beyond my back yard, the founder of Save The Ta Tas foundation, (www.savethetatas.com) invited me to do a guest blog on there website during October. (I already submitted the blog and they will notify me what day it will be posted.) Spy magazine asked me to be a contributor for an article that talks about how I got through obstacles during my breast cancer treatment. Details to follow. Every one of us has skills to offer for this worthy cause.  So get in there and join the fun of Breast Cancer Awareness month!
