Did you know every two minutes a woman in the U.S. is diagnosed with breast cancer? That’s insane. Luckily there are also more than 3 million breast cancer survivors so all those research dollars are obviously working, but more can be done. By the time you hit 40 you surely know one or two women who have been affected by breast cancer which makes this fight even more personal. Here are some items you should consider purchasing this month as a significant portion goes towards life saving research. No pink-washing here!
