This year in April, I became a survivor of this dreaded disease that effects 1 in 9 women every year, stealing lives well before their time. Breast cancer also effects 1 in 100 men and earlier detection is saving lives.
As October is Breast Cancer Awareness month I want to share Global Illumination with you , which is taking place worldwide. Help celebrate by making a donation where ever you are in the world and help save more lives and support the many different services to help breast cancer patients.
Estée Lauder Companies has arranged to have more than a dozen world-famous landmarks illuminated in pink light to draw attention to the importance of mammography screening for early diagnosis of breast cancer as well as the research for finding ways to cure and prevent breast cancer. Some of these landmarks are:
|The Harbour Bridge||Sydney||Australia|
|The Hangzhou Department Store||Hangzhou||China|
|The Eden Project||Cornwall||England|
|The Majestic Hotel||Cannes||France|
