October’s almost over but there's still plenty of time to lend your energy and talents to benefit breast cancer awareness. The American Cancer Society reports that there are currently over 2.5 million breast cancer survivors in the United States and estimates that approximately 207,090 new cases of invasive breast cancer will be diagnosed in U.S. women in 2010.
Make a point of proudly sporting pink throughout the month. Purchase jewelry from Ice.com's Think Pink collection, where 10 percent of the proceeds go to benefit the cause. A hint of pink shimmer will express your support and concern. Search for unique pieces in the trademark shade, like pink topaz stud earrings.
Share the goodwill: A pink amethyst cocktail ring, a strand of pink pearls or a pink sapphire pendant would make excellent gifts for all of the women in your life. While donning pink jewelry in October can help to raise awareness for breast cancer and promote solidarity, remember that the sparkling pieces can be worn with pride year-round.
