October's Breast Cancer Awareness Month ~ Take Time to Honor Your Heroes in the Fight

breast cancer awareness month

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, and we at Diva Girl Parties and Stuff want to honor those amazing women who have fought through the pain and the fear of life's uncertainties and yet still dare to dream, and those equally amazing women who have held their hands, wiped their tears, and made the journey a little more bearable.

Every three minutes a woman is diagnosed with breast cancer, and every 13 minutes, one of those women will lose her life; but, the millions of survivors world wide are living proof that even the most formidable of obstacles can be overcome. 

Make a donation for the cure during Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

Although preventative measures, early detection, and new treatments have resulted in lower statistics and higher survival rates, anyone who has experienced this indiscriminating disease knows that the most powerful form of medicine is the unconditional love and unwavering strength of those closest to us.

Cancer support groups have realized the invaluable power of connecting with people who have had similar experiences , the immeasurable strength of will gained by a listening ear, an encouraging story, or a knowing embrace.

When cancer takes a life, it also takes a young child's mother, a husband's wife, a mother's daughter - it has a ripple effect that impacts the hearts, hopes, and aspirations of so many others and leaves a void of unfulfilled dreams and lost passions.

It is in those times that we determine to "go pink", face the giant head on, and fight for a world that is completely cancer free.

It makes us want to grab the hands of the precious women in our lives and join forces to make a difference. Together, we can play a part in creating a world where little girls still have mother's to hug, husbands still have wives to hold, mother's don't have to bury their daughters, and friendships really will last forever.

Many of us know someone whose life has been touched by breast cancer or someone who has made a difference in the area of breast cancer awareness. Maybe you have a friend or colleague whose tireless efforts have raised much needed money for breast cancer research, or a neighbor or family member whose participation in cancer walks or runs may help end the disease forever. If you know any of these amazing women, please take a moment to honor them with a special message below.

During this Breast Cancer Awareness Month let's take time to celebrate our heroes in the fight against cancer.
