I have to admit: I can get a bit overwhelmed with the flood of pink on social media, and all over town, as the calendar flips to October. I’m still a rookie. It’s only my third year looking at breast cancer awareness month through the lens of someone who has had breast cancer. While I wouldn't consider myself cynical in nature, I am very aware that too many businesses take advantage of our emotions and try to capitalize on this disease. 

Everyone has been touched by cancer or breast cancer. Whether it's ourselves, a relative, or a friend, we all know someone who has battled cancer, making this a highly personal, and emotional, disease. Everywhere you look, there are pink products to buy. Some claim to donate money to the cause, while others are for the pure profit of the manufacturer or business.

In this episode I talk about the Month of Pink - Breast Cancer Awareness Month, and we look at some of the things to consider before you give away your hard-earned money. 

There’s a whole month devoted to AWARENESS… and I think most of us know what breast cancer is already. There's little need for awareness... so in this month of pink, I want to shift the focus a bit, and spend some time talking about some other topics related to breast cancer. In this episode, of course, I also talk about exercise, and how it can help cancer patients as they recover and beyond.
