I Heart Faces Brings Awareness to Breast Cancer

This is no monkey business.

Breast Cancer Is Not Monkey Buisness

In addition, about 207,090 new cases of invasive breast cancer will be diagnosed in women.

These numbers are staggering. And, when I think about the many many children left without their mothers as a result of this horrible disease, I almost cannot bear it.
On a positive note, at this time there are over 2.5 million breast cancer survivors in the United States, and we can raise this number! We can! Through education and awareness and the dedication of many individuals and organizations throughout the world, we will beat this disease!

Hot Pink Housewives is one such organization that I hope you will check out! Co-founded by my friend, and a Breast Cancer Survivor, MaryAnn, Hot Pink Housewives is a Facebook group "created to promote Breast Cancer awareness through love and support."

Note to my sister, Ashley, who walked in a Breast Cancer Awareness 5K this weekend: I'm very proud of you!
