Urbanistas Give Back-Breast Cancer Awareness Month
As Urbanistas we should not only care about our outside appearance, but should take good care of our bodies. Start by eating a well balanced meal (I know it's not easy), getting regular medical checkups, and performing a monthly self breast examination. Breast cancer can happen to anyone, young or old. I have a Soror who is in her 20's and although she was not diagnosed with breast cancer, she has Hodgkin's Lymphoma, a form of cancer. I decided to mention her so we can realize that this thing is real and just because you are young, doesn't make you exempt. My Soror is so brave and I am so proud of her. If you can take some time, read her blog about her journey and if you could make a small contribution to her, she would be beyond grateful. Here is the link: http://dionasjourney.blogspot.com/
Urbanistas, you can do your part and support the cause too! There are several beauty companies offering products that when purchased, a portion of the sales will go to breast cancer research. Here are some of my faves:
Brighton has created a Power of Pink Bracelet. If purchased, they will donate $5 to support Breast Cancer Research and Awareness. Visit Brighton @ the St. Louis Galleria.
Elemis is donating a portion of the proceeds to Breast Cancer Care when you buy their Essential Beauty Secrets Kit, $95. You can get it at Nordstrom or Nieman Marcus.
