Why We Wore It | Pinktober

We are doing things a little differently for this 'How we wore it' series today.

Today, we are going to say 'WHY we wore it'

The reason being is that it is October, and that means Breast Cancer Awareness Month! And the colour for this cause is of course, PINK! I think it is fantastic that there is an entire Month dedicated to bringing people together and fighting for a cause that affects so many of us in one way or another. It's only the 4th and I've already seen people participating in runs/walks, sharing videos/articles, and of course sharing the popular Pink Ribbon to help bring awareness for Breast Cancer.

Today, we are wearing PINK. I personally don't wear a lot of pink (ginger problems), but there is one shade that I will wear, and that is this one. And of course I had to bring my best little lady on this shoot!

Just a little background of why this Month is so special to us; Maikal has two amazing woman (close relatives) that are very dear to our hearts, and they have both fought against breast cancer, and WON! One of which had to fight twice! Maikal's family has some strong individuals and it makes me so proud! That being said, Breast Cancer has had studies showing that Genetics has a part in Causing it. Which means that my little girl may be at risk. And it is my job as a mother to know our history and to be aware of the chance that she could have the gene and to get her tested at some point in her life.

I think Breast Cancer Awareness Month isn't just for the people whom already have it, but for making people aware that you, your children, your relatives could be at risk and to always check yourselves and maybe get tested if you have a close relative with Breast Cancer.

If you would like to know more about Breast Cancer, I have found a fantastic link that has a ton of information, as well as a donation section if you so choose:

http://www.nationalbreastcancer.org/

If you are currently fighting against Breast Cancer, I want you to know there is hope. I want you to know that people are fighting for you. People from all over the world. Don't give up, keep fighting and keep pushing forward. You are beautiful, and you are loved. There is hope for a cure, and everyday that goes by is bringing us one step closer to finding it.

So I encourage everyone to WEAR PINK sometime this month and share it! Whether it is an accessory, lipstick, clothing, or the simple Pink Ribbon. I know this generation is so Media Savy, so if you choose to spread the awareness, here are some Hashtags that will bring more people together and help fight for the cause!
