I normally use the Get Spirit blog as an opportunity to showcase our company’s products and express its humorous side; but with October being Breast Cancer Awareness month, I’m taking a more serious tone with this blog post.
With more than 10 percent of women being diagnosed with breast cancer during their lifetime, this ailment is one that affects many of us. My family is no exception. The day my mother told me she had been diagnosed with breast cancer was one of toughest days of my life.
That’s why it’s so heartwarming to see companies order pink apparel to raise breast cancer awareness. I see orders for everything from T-shirts to wear at marches to polos for the office staff. Regardless of the order, it’s a reminder that so many others are out there facing the same battle my family had to endure.
