National Breast Cancer Awareness Month

October is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month, an annual international health campaign organized by major breast cancer charities to increase awareness of the disease, and to raise funds for research into its cause, prevention, diagnosis, treatment and cure.  The National Breast Cancer Awareness Month Organization is celebrating 25 years of educating and empowering the public about the disease, and the global leader of the breast cancer movement, Susan G. Komen for the Cure, has invested more than $1.9 billion since its inception in 1982 in its efforts to end breast cancer.

Like all too many of us, I have had family members and friends diagnosed with the disease, and I pray that a cure will soon be found.  In support of this cause, SKCreations, LLC has created Lil' Somethin' Somethin' Bags and Clutch Wallets crafted from fabric designed with the Breast Cancer Awareness signature pink ribbon.  They are now available on our website.  A portion of the proceeds from sales of these items will be donated to the Susan G. Komen for the Cure organization.
