Breast Cancer Awareness Month starts now. It is a time to remember how strong our mothers, sisters, wives, daughters, aunts, cousins and friends are. Breast Cancer is something that isn’t new to our society, but we need to remember that it is also something that should not become the norm and that we can all beat – together. Savor every bit both of yourself and those who have been fighting breast cancer.
Holy October!! Really? I can’t believe I will be turning 32 this October! Looking back, I am extremely proud that I have savored each day and plan to continue to savor every bit of my life and myself. Will you join me in savoring every bit of your life and yourself?
I believe there are many layers to savoring our overall identity – internally, physically, and, of course, our lives and those involved in our lives. To me savoring means appreciating, acknowledging, respecting, believing, supporting, and loving as much as you can authentically. This is something we should never stop nurturing, right?
One part of savoring a bit of my life and myself involves giving back to the community. Since turning 30 two years ago, I’ve been more focused on giving back each year for my birthday. This year I want to raise money for Sole Ryeders, which will donate BFFL (Best Friends For Life) Bags.
Breast Cancer Awareness
All of Identity’s October articles will be representing the charity Sole Ryeders. Sole Ryeders will be raising money for a fund to supply Breast BFFL Bags to the under-served in White Plains, NY at White Plains Hospital. The Breast BFFL Bags offer comfort, convenience, and caring for women facing cancer surgery. The bags are stylish and full of all the little things a woman would need for in-hospital surgical recovery and any post-surgical chemotherapy or radiation. Tax deductible donations can be made directly to the Hospital or Sole Ryeders.
Can you help us raise for breast cancer awareness month?
It would be great to set a goal and raise enough to donate 32 BFFL Bags for my 32nd birthday. Can you help? All you need to do is read Identity as much as you can this month and share the articles that are released this October as they will all have a logo and link to donate!
So start savorying every bit of yourself by spreading our October mission to donate and give back to Sole Ryeders and BFFL Bags.
