Think pink....

Even though October is winding down, you can still help the fight against breast cancer by supporting many worthwhile causes. Breast cancer, unfortunately, will affect all of us in some way in our lifetime. In 2011, it is estimated that there will be 230,480 new cases of invasive breast cancer. But this year, there are also more than 2.6 million breast cancer SURVIVORS in the US -- thanks to all of the research and attention this terrible disease has received.

My mom is a breast cancer survivor (GO MOM!) and looking better than ever. She received such great treatment and amazing support and we know it is only by the generosity of others that the fight against this disease has come so far.

So with the last 6 remaining days in October, help the fight against breast cancer, while at the same time scoring some amazing products.

Philosophy's Hope in a Jar moisturizer now comes in a limited edition pink jar. $5 of every purchase goes to fight breast cancer. 
Support the cause at Philosophy.com

Run out and get your OPI Shatter Pink of Hearts 2011 Limited Edition polish because OPI has made a donation to the Susan G. Komen for the Cure in the US and Rethink Breast Cancer in Canada.

Want to look Fergilicious while you join the fight? Show your support for the cause when you wear the Fergie Awareness pump. A portion of the proceeds support Susan G. Komen for the Cure.

Old Navy has teamed up with Komen for the Cure to create a limited edition pink T. The front says "Together We Can, I Promise We Will" and 5% of each purchase of this shirt will go toward the fight.

Kiss Breast Cancer goodbye with this cute tote from Avon. For just $5 you will get a Lips for Life Novelty tote and a Breast Health Resource Guide, and the money will help increase Avon's support for research and access to care for all.

There are so many great ways to support Breast Cancer Research -- and look good while you're doing it. But the #1 way you can help cut down on the instances of breast cancer in this country is to GET A MAMMOGRAM! If you are over 35, schedule your appointment today. Honestly, getting my ears pierced hurt worse than a mammogram. And getting it done gave me peace of mind that I am taking control over cancer. 

Happy shopping and thanks for supporting the cause - I know my family and my amazing survivor mom thank you for it! 

And a special shout out to my dad who was an amazing support for my mom during her treatment. Go DAD!
