I am SO excited and proud to participate in Chictopia’s Week of Giving.
Being part of this community of fashion enthusiasts is already amazing to begin with, but now that we can all join hands and support a great cause/organization makes being part of this community even MORE important.
The charity I believe that deserves Chictopia’s support is the Susan G. Komen for the Cure foundation, who is dedicated to the fight against breast cancer in the world.
Being a woman, the chance of getting breast cancer is a very scary reality to face.
I think every woman can say that they know someone who has fought, struggled to fight or lost the fight to breast cancer.
Since 1982, Komen for the Cure has helped in every aspect to help the fight against breast cancer and has helped turn breast cancer patients into survivors.
A completely selfless person and inspiration to all women,
Susan G. Komen herself fought breast cancer and lost the fight. She is an inspiration to all women b/c when she was fighting breast cancer she dedicated her life to finding ways to help other women who were impacted by breast cancer.

See below facts directly taken from the Komen for the Cure site:
http://www5.komen.org
• More early detection – nearly 75 percent of women over 40 years old now receive regular mammograms, the single most effective tool for detecting breast cancer early (in 1982, less than 30 percent received a clinical exam).
• More hope – the five-year survival rate for breast cancer, when caught early before it spreads beyond the breast, is now 98 percent (compared to 74 percent in 1982).
• More research – the federal government now devotes more than $900 million each year to breast cancer research, treatment and prevention (compared to $30 million in 1982).
• More survivors – America’s 2.5 million breast cancers survivors, the largest group of cancer survivors in the U.S., are a living testament to the power of society and science to save lives.

OUTFIT DETAILS
I am wearing a hot pink Vintage dress to represent the official breast cancer awareness symbol, the pink ribbon.
It was interesting for me to find out that the first known use of a pink ribbon in connection with breast cancer was in 1991 when the Susan G. Komen Foundation handed out pink ribbons to runners in a NY racer for breast cancer survivors. It was from then on that the pink ribbon was adopted as the official symbol of breast cancer awareness.
My hot pink dress represents breast cancer awareness in addition to letting the color speak for itself—hot pink is fun, sexy, vibrant, cute and a color that every woman feel pretty in.

It is important for ALL women to educate themselves on breast cancer and how to do regular self-breast examinations.
Wear pink and support a cause—it will make you feel good, and pretty!
