October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month and I'm asking you to help me give back!
In 2012, it is estimated that among U.S. women there will be:
226,870 new cases of invasive breast cancer
63,300 new cases of in situ breast cancer
39,510 breast cancer deaths
And it's not just women!
Did you know that men can also get breast cancer? It is rare; however, in 2012 it is estimated that there will be 2,190 cases of breast cancer in men with 410 breast cancer deaths.
Whether you're fighting a personal battle or you know of someone who has, it affects so many of us at some point and time in our lives. A mother, sister, aunt, grandmother, cousin, teacher, friend...cancer knows now boundaries, age or social status.
Please help this cause by donating what you can afford (no amount is too small!) and for every dollar raised by October 31, 2012, Carrie's Experimental Kitchen will donate 10 cents*.
Thank you so much for your generosity. I am so lucky that I am in the position to help raise awareness for this cause that is near and dear to my heart and am fortunate that I haven't been a personal statistic...yet. Together we can make a difference!
*Carrie's Experimental Kitchen will donate 10 cents on every dollar donated on this page between 10/1/12-10/31/12 up to $100.
