October is Breast Cancer awareness month. People often wear pink ribbons and shirts and ramp up their support to charitable organizations during this time.

In support of women who have lost their breasts due to the disease, designer Stella Mccartney created a double mastectomy bra. It is available for free to those in need.

Cancer is devastating to all those involved. Don’t wait for a special reminder to get checked. Keep up on your annual screenings and visit your doctor for checkups. Many cancers are treatable if detected early.
