going pink for breast cancer awareness
on a health-related topic...
Breast cancer is too common (all cancer is, for that matter), and October is the month to raise awareness of and funding for research against this insidious disease. You'll notice pink in a lot of unusual places this month - that's a good thing.
I'm sure we all know someone who has been affected. On a personal note, my mom is a breast cancer survivor, and I'm thankful everyday that she stayed around long enough to meet her grandkids.
