With October and the beginning of fall comes an important month in the year where we acknowledge Breast Cancer Awareness and support education and medical research to help defeat this terrible disease that is the most common cause of cancer in women worldwide, affecting nearly 1.7 million new cases in 2012.

How can you help? There are so many ways that you can show your support, from making a donation to wearing pink nails to purchasing products where a portion of the proceeds help fund research. breast cancer awareness, breast cancer awareness beauty, bobbi brown breast cancer awareness, clinique breast cancer awareness, origins breast cancer awareness, tory burch breast cancer awareness, eos breast cancer awareness
