5 Finds that Benefit Breast Cancer

With an estimated 232,340 females and 2,240 males being newly diagnosed with breast cancer in the United States in 2013 alone** it's pretty safe to say that most of us know at least someone in our lives who's either living with this horrible form of cancer or who is a survivor. Breast Cancer is something that we hear about all the time especially during October, breast cancer month. You may or may not know how easy it can be to lend a helping hand in fighting breast cancer and finding a cure. It could be as simple as buying a few fun fashion and beauty finds from some of your favorite brands.
