Shop Pink for Breast Cancer
We know most of our MSL readers have been impacted in one way or another by breast cancer, whether it’s been you personally, a family member, friend or acquaintance that’s dealt with the disease. October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month and one way you can support the cause, in addition to donating or participating in Race for the Cure in your area, is by wearing pink and purchasing products that give a portion of sales to breast cancer charities.
The fashion industry every year comes out with a range of products in support of the fight against breast cancer. We found some of the most fashionable items for 2014 that you’d like to have in your closet or in your home, all the while helping support this oh-so-worthwhile cause.
