November is American Diabetes Month

November is just around the corner and you know what that means, it is American Diabetes Month. A time when we remind those who may have forgotten that we must work together to increase diabetes awareness to defeat the disease once and for all. Let’s all join the fight together to remind the world why it should care about diabetes. We have some things in store to honor the cause so keep an eye out on the site. We’ll let you know shortly. In the meantime, let’s focus on October. We’ll be featuring some popular men’s and women’s diabetic boots soon from the group that brings you a wide variety of orthopedic shoes as well as some news and resources on Breast Cancer Awareness. Thank you for your help and support everyone!

Breast Cancer Resources

We are enjoying this colder weather which seems like it couldn’t get here soon enough. Fall is just around the corner and the days are getting shorter. But for now, let’s talk a little bit about Breast Cancer Resources. If you’re on Twitter, one of the best accounts to follow is ‘The Breast Cancer Site’ at @thebreastcancer. The twitter account is managed by a site which helps fund mammograms for women in need. Make sure you follow them for updates, news, and stories of hope.

Of course, we can’t talk about Breast Cancer Resources without mentioning perhaps the largest known Pink Ribbon. I’m talking about the Susan G. Komen for the Cure. You can shop and support Komen, read on resources to better understand breast cancer, and more. Check out the site when you have time and remember to spread the word on breast cancer awareness.

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month

As the month of September comes to a close, school is back into full swing, the weather is getting a bit cooler, the days are a bit shorter, and we’re approaching breast cancer awareness month. Sports Illustrated magazine is even getting in on the action with the October 12th issue this year by promoting breast cancer awareness. It is important to work together to spread the word about the disease to ultimately provide greater access to screening services. Women should get breast exams regularly and consult with health care physicians to be aware of any changes that may occur. Let’s enjoy the rest of 2010 and promote breast cancer awareness in the month of October, as well as throughout the year.
