Breast Cancer Awareness month!!!

October is one of my favorite months because it's Breast Cancer Awareness month!!!  I am a very big supporter of this cause, and over the last few years I have personally raised close to $8,000 for the cause.  It all started with my Grammie who survived breast cancer more than a decade ago.  Over my 25 years, I have known many women to battle this terrible disease, and I try to be as active as I can to support the fight against it.

In 2008, I walked 40 miles for the cause with my dear friend Amanda.  At the time I didn't have my blog, but I later wrote a mini recap here.  We walked it again in 2010 and together raised nearly $10,000!  She is walking it again this year in New York, and she's walking for my Grammie which means the world to me.  She's very close to her goal of $3,000 and if you'd like to make ANY contribution she and I both would be forever grateful.  Amanda's donation page can be found here.  Thank you in advance for you support.

Around this time, I like to find fun items that are fabulous and help support breast cancer research!  Some of my previous posts can be found here and here.  This year I have a few more fun things to mention :)
