October is not just Fair Trade month, but also Breast Cancer Awareness month and people all over are rallying around the cause.
Breast cancer awareness is an issue for anyone who has 8 female relatives, 8 female friends, or 8 female co-workers. Every day in America, over 500 women will be diagnosed with breast cancer: more than 200,000 wives, mothers, sisters and friends every year. There is a 96% survival rate for breast cancer detected at an early stage. You can help in the battle through donations, volunteering, and taking action, and by learning about the disease and the options available to those who fight against it.
