The breast kind of support..charitable shopping

October is official Breast Cancer Awareness Month and there are a million different ways that everyone can get involved to help spread awareness and fight for a cure to a disease that effects both men and women all around the world. According to The American Cancer Society's most recent estimate for breast cancer in the United States for 2009, about 192,370 new cases of invasive breast cancer will be diagnosed in women. Current statistics state that every two minutes a woman is diagnosed with breast cancer, and one woman in eight who lives to age 85 will develop breast cancer during her lifetime. Much progress is being made in understanding the disease, but we still do not have a cure. Luckily, tons of companies have designed signature items for breast cancer awareness month, and have agreed to donate a portion of their proceeds to the cause. Great news consumers! You can do your shopping and do good at the same time! double yay. So take a look at some of these adorably charitable items and make a very worthy, generous purchase. Be a breast friend, support the cause to finding a cure for breast cancer!
