Fashion Targets Breast Cancer

Cancer is a scourge, but unfortunately one that will touch 1 in 3 people during their life time.  It is something we dread, something we fear, and rightly so.  Nobody wants to hear those two life changing words ‘it’s cancer’. So what can we do about it? Not one of us can map out a future for ourselves or the ones we l0ve.  In the face of possible adversity, and worldwide tragedy, I think a pro-active stance is always the way to go.  We run the marathons, we jump out of planes.  We scale buildings to raise money for Cancer Research to h0nour loved ones passed, or loved ones triumph.

This month was breast cancer awareness month.  I can think of nothing more synonymous with womanhood as our breasts.  They are a symbol of our sexuality, of motherhood, of a beautifully curvy female figure.  A threat to ones womanhood can shake a person to her core.  It is such a defining part of ones person it is difficult to face a change to who you are, to how you see yourself.
