Breast Cancer Survivors Rock ‘I Earned My Pink’ Lapel Pin

October is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month where women are urged to get the proper screening and testing to avoid breast cancer. All across the nation men and women are sporting pink as an awareness ribbon to promote  breast cancer awareness.

But, there is another group out there – breast cancer survivors. Those brave souls who have fought the cancer demon and won. Now women who survived breast cancer are sporting a new kind of lapel pin – I earned my pink. These pins are a reminder to women of all ages to get their screening done and help prevent breast cancer by exercising and eating properly.

They answered some questions, dodged others. Promoted themselves, tore the other guy down. And just in case an hour of yapping onstage wasn’t enough to make their case, Timothy M. Kaine (D) and George Allen (R) said it with lapel pins.

Virginia’s two former governors and U.S. Senate hopefuls, polar opposites on most things, pursued strikingly similar suit-adornment strategies in Monday night’s debate: Each wore a pin meant to puncture the claims his opponent was floating about him.

Allen often accuses Kaine of supporting massive defense cuts, so Kaine fought back by sporting an American flag pin.

Kaine says Allen would deny women access to abortion, birth control and equal pay. Allen countered with a pink breast cancer bow.

October: Breast Cancer Awareness Lapel Pins

 

Breast Cancer awareness is one of the most important issues facing society today. Breast cancer, like many other forms of cancer, are highly treatable when caught at an early stage – and even preventable. October is breast cancer awareness month and everybody should be talking about it. The First Lady and Mrs. Romney both wore pink dresses at the town hall debate, the Empire State Building is lit up in pink etc. Now police officers and other law enforcement officials are starting to sport pink on their uniforms to raise awareness for breast cancer. Pink lapel pins are part of the Uniform in October.
