It's October, which means it's Breast Cancer Awareness Month!
My family has not had much history with cancer. However, my 100-year old great grandmother has dealt with breast cancer for the past eight years. One of my aunts has always for a long time been a supporter for the fight, she even shaved her hair off at one point to support the ones who are diagnosed with it.
I am thankful that my family and friends have not been diagnosed with this illness and I pray daily that it won't happen to anyone I love. I also pray for the women out there who are diagnosed with it and remain hopeful that someday a cure will be found. Every two minutes, a woman in the U.S. is diagnosed with this deadly illness. This month, I have decided to support this awareness, and you can too!
Lokai is known for their popular bracelets that represent the highest and lowest points of the Earth. The white bead contains water from Mount Everest and the black bead contains mud from the Dead Sea. These elements are a reminder for the wearer to live a balanced life - to stay humble in great moments and to remain hopeful during tough times. The company has also helped greatly in supporting various charities by donating money from whoever purchases their bracelets. This month, in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness, they have made hot pink bracelets to help the Breast Cancer Research Foundation find a cure. Basically, these bracelets are like wearing a pink ribbon as a symbol of support and a reminder to stay hopeful.
Lokai will donate $1 to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation for each hot pink Lokai Bracelet sold between now and October 31, with a minimum contribution of $300,000. Join the fight and purchase your pink ribbon/bracelet on the website down below! Your purchase and donation is just one step closer to finding a cure.
