Sadly, I think it’s safe to say that breast cancer has touched just about all of our lives in one way or another, whether it be a family member, a friend, a co worker, whether they had a scare, battled breast cancer, lost their life, or overcame it. It’s scary to think how many of us have been impacted by this scary disease.
I feel like it is so important, that there should be more than just a month dedicated to raising funds for research, prevention and treatment. I know that people work 24/7/365, but it deserves even more than that, if that’s even possible.
On the same note though, it’s so overwhelming-in a good way- to see how much Breast Cancer Awareness month has grown over the years. So many people, businesses, companies donate so much time and money to help put an end to breast cancer.
This month, all of the brands of the Estee Lauder companies are taking part in the Estee Lauder Breast Cancer Awareness campaign: Hear Our Stories. Share Yours. The goal is to defeat breast cancer through education and research. Check out this year’s stories of intimate exchanges between relatable families about their breast cancer journeys….
