Breast Cancer Awareness Jewelry -- Pink Coral Earrings

October is Breast Cancer Awareness month, a month where women all over the world are asked to remember their breast health. Early detection and awareness is the best weapon against this horrible disease. I am lucky enough to say that my Mom is a survivor of breast cancer. She had a mastectomy back in 2000 and has been cancer-free ever since. She was diligent about having regular mammograms and her cancer was detected early enough for doctors to take action. So October for me is an important month and I'd like to encourage women, no matter what age, to take control of your health and at least get informed with information!  With Peggy Li Creations jewelry, you also have the chance to help me support breast cancer awareness with a pair of earrings for Breast Cancer Awareness Month.
Pink Coral Earrings for Breast Cancer Awareness Month
Everyone knows the pink ribbon as the symbol for Breast Cancer Awareness. In honor of this symbol, I am donating 50% of sales of my Pink Coral Earrings during the month of October to the Susan G. Komen foundation, the largest and best-funded breast cancer foundation in the U.S.  With partnerships in over 50 countries and over $2 billion in funds going towards education and cancer research, the Susan G. Komen foundation is a solid foundation that I am proud to support. Read more about the Susan G. Komen foundation on Wikipedia.

The BCA month was in created in 1985 as a partnership between the American Cancer Society and the pharmaceutical company now known as AstraZeneca. The history of the month as a fund-raising and awareness opportunity is outlined on the National Breast Cancer Awareness Month page on Wikipedia.

Thank you for helping me support breast cancer awareness with great jewelry for a great cause!
