Breast Cancer Awareness
by Patrick Austin
Why You Need to Get One
Do you have a friend or loved one with breast cancer? If so,
you definitely should consider showing your support by getting
a breast cancer awareness bracelet. I guarantee you it will mean
alot to the person afflicted with the disease to see you wearing
such a bracelet.
Even if you dont know someone with the disease, its
always a good thing to support a cause, and wearing a breast cancer
awareness bracelet would show people that you care about fighting
against one of the worst diseases in America.
Breast cancer is the most common disease effecting women in North
America and Europe. Every woman is at risk for breast cancer.
Over two hundred thousand cases of breast cancer have been diagnosed
in the past two years and that number is growing. Its been
reported that every twelve minutes, a woman in America dies of
breast cancer. Its is the second leading cause of cancer
death in American women behind lung cancer.
Thats why wearing a breast cancer awareness bracelet can
mean so much. The women afflicted with this disease should know
that theyre not alone. If a person sees you wearing one
of the best bracelets, you can tell them about it and hopefully,
they will go out and buy one themselves.
Purchasing a breast cancer awareness bracelet is very easy to
do. They can be found at your local Target store, or you can purchase
one online. They arent very expensive, ranging from five
to ten dollars. But, if you would like to spend a little more
on your bracelet, there are stores that sell bracelets made of
pink swarovski crystals, sterling silver, and 14k gold. They can
cost anywhere from sixty-five dollars to one hundred and thirty
Many of these bracelets have an inspirational message on the
side. Some have share beauty, spread hope while others
have hope, faith & love.
If you do decide to get a breast cancer awareness bracelet, be
sure to spread the word around about fighting the disease. Because
making women (and men) more aware, simply by passing on the word
about how to detect breast cancer early, and keeping the buzz
going to remind everyone to see a doctor for mammograms and do
those self- examinationsit actually saves lives, thousands
and thousands of lives.
