Curious about the recent surge in pink products and breast cancer awareness promotional items? Breast Cancer Awareness Month (October) is only a few days away, and organizations including the American Cancer Society, Susan G. Komen for the Cure, and others are busily preparing for annual walks and fundraising drives. In 2011, it is estimated that 230,480 new cases of invasive breast cancer will develop among American women alone. Additionally, 39,520 breast cancer deaths are anticipated by year’s end. It is the most common cancer in women worldwide.
As I mentioned in a Nashville themed blog post last November, Nashville, Tennessee is one of my all-time favorite cities. While I only spent a short period of time there, I was devastated to hear about the floods that swept through the vibrant city. My heart goes out to all of the victims, but especially to my friend Jamie’s grandparents, who have temporarily relocated to her house in Atlanta while their house is repaired.
