Carson Dellosa shows support for Breast Cancer Awareness


October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month and in honor of this, I wanted to share some exciting news with you! 

From October 4th- 31st, Carson Dellosa will donate $1 from every online purchase from carsondellosa.com and Learning Spot Library to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation, up to a maximum of $10,000.
So head on over to carsondellosa.com and get your SHOP ON for a wonderful cause!

I recently read some promising news about breast cancer research in my local newspaper. I read that doctor's and researchers are continuing to study other options besides chemotherapy. One doctor discussed a woman in her 40's with small children and a full time job. He was able to provide her with other medications instead of chemotherapy. 

Very promising news!
This is why early detection is key. Don't wait until your 40 to receive a mammogram if you feel something is not right. My mother was diagnosed with early stages in her 60's and the fear is always in the back of my mind. I am in my early 30's and regularly do self- check-ups. I will also have a mammogram next year to make sure everything is ok- but the fear is still there. 

Did you know that in 2012 is is estimated that over 226,000 women will be diagnosed with invasive breast cancer?  The Breast Cancer Research Foundation is dedicated to preventing breast cancer and finding a cure in our lifetime by funding clinical and translational research worldwide. For more information about BCRF, visit www.bcrfcure.org.

         Have a great day friends!!
