There’s so much to look forward to in October (Fall foliage, seasonal spices are becoming frequent (aka spiced lattes and pumpkin bread) and cooler weather, but it also marks an incredibly important month – “Breast Cancer Awareness” month. With millions participating on a multitude of different levels, we’re all in it for one goal in mind – the fight for the cure.
Joining the search for the cure is much easier than you think – now-a-days you can even purchase a chocolate bar at your local drug store that gives back to BCA!
