Because October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month (BCAM)I have decided to make my first week's photos along the lines of ‘Think Pink.’
The purpose of of BCAM is to raise awareness of breast cancer, encourage women to be breast aware and is a crucial fundraising opportunity for charities, such as Breast Cancer Campaign. The money the Campaign generates during the month funds innovative, world-class breast cancer research throughout the UK.

"Reflection"
Reflecting over my past 9 months this year, it is obviously a year I would not wish to repeat and one I am pleased to have survived!

“Cherish”
I cherish the momory of a very special Aunt who after a long battle died of Breast Cancer in 1961. Luckily through research and much more breast awareness, the detection and treatment is much better and more successful today than then.

“Hold”
Holding a pair of scissors in one hand and some lovely pattern paper in another is pure joy.

As always I am moved by your posts and in awe of your photos and originality. My friend has recently completed treatment for breast cancer so this is a subject close to my heart.

Breast Cancer Awareness is such a worthwhile cause, and it's great that so many companies are pledging their support financially - hopefully together we can make a big impact!

If any ladies are looking to update their hallway or back doorstep with a shiny new doormat, now's the time to buy as I've found that doormatsdelivered.com will be donating £1 per sale this month for Breast Cancer Awareness - which is rather nice!

If more suppliers started committing to raise funds we could raise so much money without actively trying to do so.

Hope the heads up helps! Do you know of any other companies doing this too?
