October is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month.
Breast cancer awareness month is now celebrating it's 25th year and the support is continuing to grow. The most recognizable symbol of support is the pink ribbon. The pink ribbon was first given out in 1991 during a Susan G. Komen race in New York City. It was a year later when the NBCAMF (National Breast Cancer Awareness Month Foundation) adopted the ribbon as it's official symbol. Now, you can not only wear a pink ribbon to show your support, but you can also purchase items from kitchen appliances to clothing as well as office supplies and medical jewelry that use the color pink in the design to show support.
