October is the Breast Cancer Awareness Month

In support of the Breast Cancer Awareness Month which falls in October, I've created a few PINK sets in Polyvore. Just to give ideas and be creative as well as to contribute something for this campaign.

A cousin of mine have to undergoes several chemo therapies to cure her cancer. Alhamdulillah she's in good health now but still needs her monthly check-up.

What exactly is Breast Cancer Awareness Month (BCAM)?

Accroding to Wikipedia (yes... now lot's of people are referring to this online encyclopaedia) BCAM is
... an annual international health campaign organized by major breast cancer charities every October to increase awareness of the disease and to raise funds for research into its cause, prevention and cure. The campaign also offers information and support to those affected by breast cancer.

As well as providing a platform for breast cancer charities to raise awareness of their work and of the disease, BCAM is also a prime opportunity to remind women to be breast aware for earlier detection.
In regards to that, here I present my Breast Cancer Awareness Month Sets.

I'm going to wear my PINK hijab a few times this month. As a woman, I'm going to support this campaign as part of my contribution towards health awareness because Islam encourage us to always be healthy.

This collection is great and will certainly help in raising awareness. Any help is helpful, especially when it comes to cancer and diseases that we know so little about (like Alzheimer's and breast cancer).
