Since the first organized movement in 1985, the month of October has been known as National Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Breast cancer campaigns have focused on educating the public, raising funding for research and support, and bringing attention to the risks and dangers of the disease.
During the month of October, pink is more than a color. It is a symbol for survival, remembrance, and perseverance. For those who continue to fight breast cancer each day, actively battling the disease that plagues their body. For those who are proudly living their victory, quietly praying that their battle is truly over. For those who have lost the fight, who are no longer here to raise their voice and say this disease must be, should be, needs to be eradicated. For those left in its wake, too removed to be considered victims but too close to be ignored. It’s difficult to look around and find someone who hasn’t been touched in some way by this disease. For these reasons, we stand together wearing pink in October.
Bee Inspired Too is proud to support Franklin Needs, a local nonprofit organization focused on supporting breast cancer health for Franklin County residents. Franklin Needs offers mammograms for uninsured and under-insured Franklin County residents, as well as provide support and help cover certain expenses.
During the month of October, Bee Inspired Too will be selling pink hand-dyed head scarves and wraps in support of this amazing local organization. All profits from the sales of these beautiful scarves will be donated to Franklin Needs. The silk wraps are available in five sizes and can be purchased online or in store. Add a splash of pink to any ensemble in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month!
