Handmade Giveaway: Breast Cancer Awareness Bracelet by Beaded Embellishments

EDIT: Giveaway is officially closed. Congratulations to the randomly chosen 36th commenter, Anne-Marie!

Breast Cancer Awareness GiveawayUnless colorblind, you may have noticed the increase of pink products popping up in your everyday lives. That's because October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month! The amount of people supporting the cause is amazing. My favorite Mexican restaurant is even offering $2.99 pink margaritas on Mondays, and $1 of each sold benefits the Delaware Breast Cancer Coalition. Several crafters also donate to breast cancer research and programs, including all shops in my featured treasury of the week, PINK Charitable Donations.

I leaped at the chance when Denise of Beaded Embellishments offered me the opportunity to spread the importance of routine breast exams for early detection. You may remember when I hosted her Swarovski Crystal Earrings Giveaway last October - she is a registered nurse at a chemotherapy unit so cancer awareness is a huge concern of hers.

She uses her skills as a jewelry artist to help those that have been affected by cancer, and is giving away a piece for free. This pretty pink ribbon bracelet is strung with pink Swarovski pearls, frosted pink glass and silver metal spacer beads. It measures approximately 7.5 inches in length and closes with a silver metal lobster claw clasp.

  6. . For women with dense
    breasts, digital mammography may be better than
    film mammography. Tumors in women with
    dense breasts may be easier to find with digital
    mammography than with film mammography.
    A digital mammogram can be lightened, darkened
    or enlarged, possibly showing tumors that would
    otherwise be hidden

  39. Because of the high hormone levels related to pregnancy, there has been concern that pregnancy after breast cancer could affect survival. However, the studies done to date show having a child after treatment does not lower a woman’s chances for long-term survival [82-84].

  50. I learned that many factors are linked to breast cancer risk. Some factors affect risk a great deal and others by only a small amount. Some risk factors you can’t change. Simply being a woman and getting older increase your chances of getting breast cancer. Other factors you may be able to control. For example, leading a healthy lifestyle can help reduce your risk of breast cancer.
