When it comes to the fight against breast cancer, not all pinks are equal. As we become more aware of the “pinkwashing” of America, we know that buying something in a shade of pink isn't necessarily doing anything to help the fight against breast cancer -- and some products can actually hinder it. That's why, as we spend our October supporting Breast Cancer Awareness Month, getting the word out and doing our individual best to fund the cause as we see fit, we need to make sure we're supporting the fight well. (And of course, looking good while doing it -- that's also nice.)
There are many fundraisers out there from selling candy to hosting car washes, but Simple Pickup created a fundraiser like no other. This month they want to contribute by donating money to help fight breast cancer.
Is possible for a bra to detect breast cancer?
Well, according to First Warning Systems, the answer is a resounding yes. The Reno, Nevada-based company says they have invented a sports bra that comes complete with built-in heat sensors that can allow doctors to see malignancies through a state-of-the-art thermal imprint.
October is Breast Cancer Awareness month. 'The Spirit Indestructible' singer Nelly Furtado is the latest pop star to join the fight against breast cancer by speaking up and lending her voice and her image to the cause.
In America, any women between the ages 20 and 50 have heard just about every lovable, tacky, horrendous, eye-rolling and hysterical term for those two mammary glands that sit on her chest. October is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month, so what better time than now to spread knowledge on taking care of breasts (for both men and women)?
