The month of October is synonymous for many with Breast Cancer Awareness campaigns. Everyone from Sephora to the NFL is seeing pink, and funds are flying into countless charities and organizations dedicated to helping those struggling with the disease.
For this Examiner, Breast Cancer Awareness strikes a personal chord as I lost my best friend, Bridget Spence, to the disease this year. A tireless advocate for Breast Cancer Awareness, Bridget walked literally hundreds of miles and raised thousands of dollars in the Komen Three-Day. My running shoes are a bit beaten down, so this October I’ll try to honor Bridget in my own way… by shedding light on noteworthy products giving back to Breast Cancer Awareness and Research.
I’ve always been a fan of The Organic Pharmacy, a leading non-toxic health and beauty brand that uses custom blend herbs and homeopathic ingredients in their products. Ever since they opened their first store in 2002 on Kings Road in London, savvy shoppers have been buying their products by the armful.
This October, for every Ultra Dry Skin Cream purchased, $1will be donated to the Breast Cancer Fund. Taking it one step further, the Ultra Dry Skin Cream is safe and effective for woman going through treatment. This super rich nourishing body cream loves dry, scaly or chapped skin. Enriched with Evening Primrose, Tamanu, Neem and Rose Hip, it goes to work quickly restoring skin to its former glory. It brings instant relief even to the most stubborn, dry skin.
The Breast Cancer Fund works to connect the dots between breast cancer and exposures to chemicals and radiation in our everyday environments. The Breast Cancer Fund translates the growing body of scientific evidence linking breast cancer and environmental exposures into public education and advocacy campaigns that protect our health and reduce breast cancer risk.
These products carry the voices of people affected by cancer to inspire and compel the changes necessary to find a cure.
