Heather here today, I don’t think there is anyone out there that does not know someone who has been diagnosed with breast cancer.  Although it should be on our minds all year round, October is one month of the year where we all should donate, participate and/or pray for all the lives touched by this horrific disease.  Luckily living in a big city, like Houston, we have many options to make an impact.  Listed below are just a few of the many events happening in our great city that benefit Breast Cancer.  Do what you can to support this worthy cause!



Susan G. Komen More Than Pink Day

This might be the easiest way to help support the breast cancer cause.  Tomorrow, October 6th, join the Susan G. Woman Houston group and WEAR PINK.  It is that simple.  You can also share your photos with the tag #IAmMoreThanPInk to further promote the campaign.  Due to Hurricane Harvey, the annual Susan G. Koman breast cancer walk has been rescheduled to January 2018.  Click here for more information and to register for the walk.
