October is Breast Cancer Awareness month and is full of walks, runs, benefits and events all in pink for this important cause. My friend Vicki of Dessert Divas in Maine was starting to plan a dessert table for a breast cancer event when she asked me to develop some printables to use in her design. I was happy to help, and the more I thought about it, the more I realized there were probably MANY of you out there doing something to raise awareness about breast cancer this month and would benefit from having these printables as well!
In the process of creating my own dessert display, I researched some of the breast cancer statistics–the Susan Komen Foundation was a great resource among others. Everything I read pointed directly to the fact breast cancer is something ALL women should take seriously. Risk increases as you age, and in the end, over a lifetime a startling 1 in 8 women will be diagnosed with this disease.
But the good news? Early detection is one of the best tools in fighting breast cancer. So mothers, sisters, grandmothers, daughters, friends…be aware, and be screened!
And this month filled with pink ribbons is the perfect time for little reminders–a Breast Cancer Awareness box full of pink chocolates or a cupcake with a pretty pink ribbon topper to a friend or loved one might be just the thing they need to remember to be well.
