*This post is a press release, however on a personal note, I personally know two people who are very dear to my heart currently fighting the breast cancer battle. As women and mothers I hope we will all consider supporting breast cancer awareness and research in one way or another. It’s a fight no woman should have to endure.
Bless your heart ;-),
