It's October and you'd have to be living under a rock
( where did that expression ever come from?)
not to know that it's Breast Cancer Awareness Month.
Although, I'm late this year in sharing the information, I'd like to offer some suggestions,
as I have the past couple of years,to support some of the organizations, that work to
fight this terrible disease through research, medical care and education, while treating
yourself. Most these products will be available for the next few weeks, but I'd act
fast, if there's something you like or want to support.
