October is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month, and there are plenty of ways to help the cause and make sure the breast cancer patients, surivors and their families feel seen and supported, from fundraising to donating to volunteering with a charity. The illness affects one in eight women at some point in their lives — so the chances that you or a loved one will be (or have already been) impacted are high.
We love pink attire, accessories and household appliances as much as the next person, and they, of course, get major bonus points when a portion of the proceeds goes to breast cancer research — but you don’t need to get your pink on to support people living with breast cancer. If you or someone close to you has breast cancer, it’s the practical things that matter.
When going through chemotherapy, radiation and surgery, items like hospital gowns and bras designed specifically for breast cancer patients will get plenty of good use. If you or someone you know has breast cancer, the following products will make the treatment process and the path to recovery just a little bit easier and more comfortable.
