October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month . . . and since the risk of breast cancer increases the older we get, the fab women of FASHION FLASH got together to create a theme around the issue, in honor of all those who are cancer patients, survivors or are working hard to prevent it! We’ve got articles on the best exercises to do, ingredients in beauty products we might want to be aware of, best ways to lower your risk, how to look and feel pretty no matter what you’re going through . . . and so much more!
I’m honored that THE BEST OF EVERYTHING AFTER 50 is hosting this week’s FASHION FLASH, and I’ll start the conversation going with my own blog post!
