October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month

Oh wow, blink twice and already we're half way into October! I've been crazily trying to prepare for what may well be the most un-fun conference ever, but I do want to take a minute to talk about Breast Cancer Awareness month. As some of you may know, the members of the created a campaign last year, both to raise funds for various cancer charities, and to raise awareness about cancer prevention and treatment. It was such a success that we're doing it again this year!

I'm excited to participate -- not only will I be writing some pink-related posts, I'll also be doing the Comments for a Cure fundraiser. For every comment left on this blog on October 22nd, 23rd, and 24th, I'll be donating $1 to the Canadian Cancer Society, up to a limit of $50. (That's Wed, Thurs, and Fri next week!) Plus, there's going to be a contest for a great prize! So please stop by on those days to comment about the Pink campaign, share stories about how cancer's touched your lives, or just say 'hi'!

Of course, the best part is that the whole BBN is involved in this! Check out the "Think Pink" widget on the sidebar for links to Breast Cancer Awareness-related posts by network members, and do stop by the blogs below and drop a comment on their fundraising days. Every comment is another step in the fight against cancer!
