31 Days - Day 2

31 Days of Breast Cancer Awareness, Support & Remembrance - Day 2

For the past 25 years, October has been known as Breast Cancer Awareness Month.  While the organization that started the awareness month, the National Breast Cancer Awareness Association, the cause and the awareness month seem to reach past our borders.  Check out these cool buildings and how other countries are showing their support for Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

As we all know, breast cancer does not discriminate against race, color, religion, national origin and believe it or not gender.  These countries and many others join in the fight hard to eliminate the disease.

On our own land, the lights in the George Washington Bridge, 156 in all,  are pink.

Breast Cancer Awareness organizations have set out to increase awareness of the disease and to raise funds for research into its cause, prevention, diagnosis, treatment and cure.  While originally, awareness was a cause fronted by mostly cancer organizations, many other types of organizations such as clothing companies, celebrities and even your local firefighters have gone pink.  Breast cancer awareness is one of the most supported.

The number of websites and organizations working against breast cancer are countless.  I’m sure we've all been to a walk or two to support one of the organizations.

How do you support breast cancer awareness month?
