October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, which is an annual campaign to increase awareness of the disease. While most people are aware of breast cancer, many forget to take the steps to have a plan to detect the disease in its early stages and encourage others to do the same. A lot of progress has been made in treatment & research, but we still have a long way to go!

There are many ways that we can help fight this disease. We can donate to help research for a cure, host a fundraiser, participate in a walk or fundraiser or benefit that will help all of the women that are greatly affected by this disease. Here are some wonderful organizations that support such an important cause:

The Donna Foundation

Pink Up The Pace
