October & Breast Cancer Awareness

October & Breast Cancer Awareness

October is one of those months that brings so many things to mind, don’t you think? You’ve got pumpkin carving opportunities galore with the kiddos, sweater weather, firepits, Halloween candy by the truck load, and many other opportunities to create priceless memories. At this point, I’m just sad the month is almost over.

One of the bigger things that should spring to mind, too, is that October is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Not only that, but how can I – and, well, you too – contribute?

Breast Cancer Awareness month is more than just a time to think about loved ones who are continuing to fight or have lost their battle. It’s a yearly campaign that educates people, both men and women, about the importance of early breast screening and early testing. I am currently watching my dear friend, who is only 39 years old, fight this very battle. She was lucky and it was detected while at an early screening. That’s the blessing in all of this. Not to mention, she knows she isn’t fighting this alone. This disease has taken so many of our loved ones way too early in life, and there are countless non-profit organizations that want to help find a cure. Even numerous clients of ours, like Buckets & Bows Maid Service, have joined in this fight.

My very own friend, Debbie Sardone, started Cleaning for a Reason, a non-profit organization, 12 years ago through her Buckets & Bows company. Through this non-profit, it  gives the gift of free house cleaning to women undergoing treatment for any type of cancer. She has inspired other local businesses, like MaidPro Denton, to help educate people in joining us in the fight against Breast Cancer.

In this issue, information on screening and testing will be provided. Read these important facts, my friends, and let’s join together in early detection.
