Breast Cancer Awareness Month

There are many reasons why I love October. The leaves begin to change color, the air gets a tad bit cooler, the pumpkin spice latte at Starbucks comes out, and most of all everyone wears the color PINK. Not only do people wear pink, we basically live pink. Every where we look, theres pink.  The NFL (and other sports) all wear various pink items. Our local grocery store workers have all worn pink shirts this month. I have seen pink hair, pink lips, pink food even! This year, I chose to 'go all out'- well for me anyway- and honor those I know personally and all those I have never met who have been affected by breast cancer. I had a pink strand of hair put in!!! I know, crazy huh!? Breast cancer is something that has affected my life in many ways. Not to get into a lot of detail, but I know many women who have fought and survived breast cancer, and some who have lost their life to breast cancer. So I thought, why not get pink hair?! I took a photo so y'all could see (and got a little fancy with my instagram)!!! Let me know what you think- and think PINK!!

  1. Having breast cancer, going through a mastectomy and dealing with your altered perception of your body image is something that can overwhelm any woman. After I had a total mastectomy for my left breast, just to help boost my self-confidence I had breast implants in perth done.
