Breast Cancer awareness Month!

Its that time of year again where we support our sisters who suffered from cancer. An added bonus is the tons of great products supporting! Ill make a special page to put all the cancer related stuff, so you don't have to look to find it, as well as blog posts.

First, Kræftens Bekæmpelse is having "Lyserød Lørdag" (Pink Saturday) on October 6th. Make sure to check your local newspaper for events! 

Kræftens Bekæmpelse was founded in 1928, but got roots in the 1904 "Ordinary Danish Doctor Association Cancer Committee" and the related Radium foundation that gathered money so they could make radium stations for cancer patients to be treated.  KB does not only fight to treat cancer and spread awareness but is also deep in the scientific field. Since 1949 an institute for cancer research has been located in Copenhagen. The institute is considered among the worlds finest and is home to one of the largest collection of cell material in the world. It was also this institute that finally found a vaccine for cervical cancer (the one caused by virus), the so called HPV vaccine. 

As all ways several stores is supporting the cause by offering special pink merchandise. Today ill show some of my favorites from Kræftens Bekæmpelse´s webshop
