My favorite cousin, who was also an award-winning writer, passed away from breast cancer before she even turned 50. And I can’t go through a single month, let alone the month of October (designated as Breast Cancer Awareness month) wondering what else she might have achieved, if breast cancer hadn’t killed her. Hardly anyone is completely untouched by this terrible disease. Whether a family member, a friend, a co-worker or someone else you know has suffered from breast cancer, many more women survive today thanks to education, early detection, and better ways to treat the disease.
This October, as in years’ past, Conair and Scuunci, (a division of Conair), will be offering a selection of hair accessories through their “Power of Pink” program. They take some of their favorite products, and “pink” them up with special editions in varying shades of pink and black. The product will make you look good, and help support the work of the Breast Cancer Research Foundation. This is the fifth year that Scunci and Conair have participated in helping to stamp out breast cancer through this program, with a portion of the proceeds from these special products, donated to the Conair will donate a minimum of $100,000 to BCRF. Here are some of my favorites, although I have to apologize for the photos….I’m still living out of a suitcase and a box while my apartment is being renovated, and am left with few resources to photograph and upload my own photos. I’m making do with photos that may not be the actuals. But you’ll get the idea….
