National Breast Cancer FoundationThe Hanes company has been donating to the National Breast Cancer Foundation since 2009.  Cancer in some form or another has touched so many lives.  My Mom battled breast cancer and was able to overcome it, though not all share her results.  We have been very blessed!

The National Breast Cancer Foundation's mission is to save lives through early detection and to provide mammograms for those in need. Their mission includes growing awareness through education, providing diagnostic breast care services for those who need it, and providing nurturing support services.Did you know there are 7 types of breast cancer, altogether 6 stages?  I'm not a scientist, so my contribution to helping the cause is limited to prayers and donations.  This year, approximately 200,000 women and 1,700 men will be diagnosed.  Please pray for those people and take a moment to do your part to contribute as well!  
What a great statement!!!  To further support what they are doing, Hanes is donating $1 for each unique free virtual care package sent from their facebook page.  That means if you make 10 virtual care packages, send them to ten friends, on facebook or otherwise, $10 goes toward their cause! 

The Free Virtual Care Packages can include up to six things.  Notes, personal photos, music, personal videos, T-shirt designs, and even a recipe of choice!  (I chose chocolate, but I'm sure you can guess why!)  Take a few minutes to go and do your part to get one more dollar donated!  Every little bit counts, if you've ever rolled change in desperate need of gas or groceries, you know what I'm talking about!!!  You can also go here and leave a message of hope for those who need it!

When you finish, go and do some research on how to do self breast exams.  They say the best thing is to detect it early, better to be safe than sorry! 

I would love to hear some messages of hope for those who may need them right now!  Feel free to leave a comment or contact me!
May God bless you and Keep You!
