Breast Cancer Awareness – Giveaway & Fundraiser

breast cancer jewelry collageOver the last year, I have had one too many people in my circle be diagnosed and treated for breast cancer. Last year, I featured a story on a veteran mom who battled cancer and survived. I know there are many, many more stories similar to Lenore's that have yet to be heard. It is still true that 1 in 8 women in the US will develop some form of breast cancer. So we have to remain proactive, and continue to look for ways to possibly decrease our chances of being diagnosed with breast cancer. And while doctors have come a long way in terms of treatment and research, we still have a long way to go. 

I'm always amazed at the power of social media, and met the sponsor of this giveaway (T & A Jewelry), through my Facebook fan page. I saw all of the beautiful breast cancer awareness jewelry, and immediately asked if there was a way to collaborate, so we could both fundraise and raise awareness at the same time. They had no hesitation in providing a piece of their jewelry for this giveaway. And in addition, 10% of all proceeds purchased through their website during the month of October will be donated to charity to support breast cancer research and treatment. T&A Jewelry understand the importance of breast cancer awareness and support, as their mother, aunt and family friend are all survivors.

The inspiration for this jewelry business came from being a customer in support of a family member's business. As a result, they started their own business, and provide jewelry that they wear themselves, and that their customers request. Their top three items sold in support of breast cancer are below: pink ribbon charm bracelet, breast cancer key necklace and the pink ribbon survivor charm bracelet. Click here to view complete listing and photos of available jewelry.

    My mom is a three time cancer survivor. Breast cancer twice – she is still going strong. I think of Whitney Houston singing the words “I didn’t know my own strength” these words hold truth for many survivors. Thanks Christine you’ve encouraged me to blog on this…I Didn’t Know My Own Strength. -Deborah

    My mom passed from breast cancer way to young and her message was if you have a family history get checked early and often. Id love to win this necklace, so cool.

      Hi Dawn, I’m so sorry to hear about your mom. Thank you so much for sharing her message with us. It’s so important, and it definitely something I will keep in mind. I literally watched an aunt of mine pass from breast cancer and it was so tough to see that.

    Hi Christine! I'm still waiting on results from my breast biopsy last week and my mom had a double mastectomy this past March and she is cancer-free! Love the giveaway and sorry I didn't get a chance to talk with you more at blogalicious. Continued success to you!

    My aunt passed away from breast cancer several years ago. I was diagnosed at the same time, and I am a survivor. Thank you for all you do to support awareness for the cause! And I love the necklace, such a beautiful way to remember, show support, and spur conversations!
