Breast Cancer Awareness Month
October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Sadly, we all have a story to tell.
For our mothers, sisters, wives, daughters and for all who are currently fighting, and all we have lost in the fight against breast cancer. Please know, we are in this with you, on this National Metastatic Breast Cancer Awareness Day and always, we are here for you!
Phout, Be’s sister, created and handmade Breast Cancer Awareness masks.
She donated all the proceeds to charity.
Our team purchased masks from her to support this great cause. Be’ and Phout lost their Mother to breast cancer at the very young age of 48.
It is our honor and we are proud to #wearitpink, especially throughout the month of October, for all the women in our lives that have been affected by this awful disease.
Lori Hudanich, wife of Dr. Ronald Hudanich, is a breast cancer survivor.
Jessica’s mother, who has had a bilateral mastectomy with breast reconstruction, is also a breast cancer survivor.
We also honor Malinda, a former employee, and dear friend, that is still fighting breast cancer, and has been doing so for over 13 years.
Lastly, we would like to honor all that have lost their battle with breast cancer, like Emilie’s sister-in-law.

National Breast Cancer Foundation
National Breast Cancer Foundation, Inc. nationalbreastcancer.org
Founded on personal experience. National Breast Cancer Foundation was founded in 1991 by breast cancer survivor, Janelle Hail. She was diagnosed with breast cancer in 1980 at the age of 34. At the time of her diagnosis, there was little information about the disease, and she was forced to make a decision about her health with few options. After her treatment, Janelle made a commitment to help women around the world by educating them about breast cancer and the importance of early detection.
