My Friends Help Me Create Awareness During Breast Cancer Awareness Month 2018
Hola Estrellitas! This past weekend, I took pictures with my friends, plus size models and bloggers Latonia Robinson and Nadia Peña wearing t-shirts to create awareness for Breast Cancer.
October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month and even though the month is almost over, you can still go and get checked out. Get a mammogram, it can save your life and encourage your friends, moms, sisters etc…to do it also.
This is a cause that is very close to our hearts. My Mom died of cancer and even thought it was not Breast Cancer, it was still cancer nonetheless. We all know somebody that has been affected by the disease, whether it is a co-worker, a friend or a family member, that is why we wanted to do this.
If you or someone you know has been affected by Breast Cancer, here is a list of resources that would help you get through it:
1-National Breast Cancer Foundation, Inc
2-American Breast Cancer Foundation
3-Breast Cancer Research Foundation
4-Florida Breast Cancer Foundation
You can donate money to any of those foundations to help find a cure or buy Breast Cancer Awareness Merchandise. Usually they donate a portion of the sales to the cause. The t-shirts that we are wearing are from Walmart but a lot of other retailers do it as well.
Shopping for a good cause is more fun, isn’t it?
In addition to creating awareness, this post is also about sisterhood, friendship and women supporting women. I am surrounded by phenomenal women and I am grateful for it.
Live, Love & Inspire
