October is Breast Cancer Awareness month, which is a cause near and dear to my heart. My grandmother is a breast cancer survivor. I feel passionately about helping others by raising awareness and helping to find a cure.

Komen for the Cure Foundation – is one of the nation’s largest non-profits, and one of the most successful triumphs in public health marketing and changing health habits.” Charles Duhigg
