Not to be overshadowed by Halloween, Breast Cancer Awareness comes to a close as the 31st marks the end of the October month. I will certainly miss the touch of pink splashed across the NFL field as players sport their pink cleats, gloves, sweatbands, and towels in support of Breast Cancer Awareness.
When the opportunity arises, continue to offer words of encouragement to the current fighters and survivors, without forgetting those who have passed on. Breast Cancer Awareness should be remembered today and going forward throughout the year as over 200,000 new cases of invasive breast cancer will occur among women in the United States in 2010. So please, remember to check your lovely lady lumps as an early prevention measure to lower your risk of breast cancer.
I’ve always admired OPI’s Pink Heart’s campaign which developed a light pink nail polish, free of DBP, Toluene, and Formaldehyde, to support Susan G. Komen for the Cure to put an end to breast cancer forever.
I love nail polish and was inspired by the campaign to use my five mini canvases to show my appreciation for Breast Cancer Awareness. Here is my interpretation of how I like to wear my pink ribbon.
In memory of my Auntie Junie who lost her fight to cancer. We love you Auntie and your memory continues to live on.
