Let's Get Pink

Did you know ?*

All women are at risks of getting breast cancer?

That African-American women have a higher chance of mortality from breast cancer  than any other racial group?

1 out of 100 cases of breast cancer happen to be men.

With early detection and confided to the breast,  the five year survival rate from breast cancer  
is  98 percent.

Breast cancer is a devastating disease that not  only ravages the person but it also devastates families, friendships, communities, workplaces and even classrooms. Victims of breast cancer are mothers, daughters, sisters, colleagues, students and friends.  Now in it's 25th year, the month of October has been designated as National Breast Cancer Awareness Month. In order to fund research and hopefully a cure to a disease that strikes 1 in 8 women every year, some of my favorite beauty products, jewelery companies and clothing labels are going pink for the month of October.

Marilyn Make A Difference Jean from NYDJ

NYDJ short for  Not Your Daughter's Jean has the  Marilyn Make A Difference Jean which is a flattering fit and wash for a lady with a fuller figure.  If you purchase the Marilyn, NYDJ will donate $10 to  Susan G.
