Extra! Extra! Breast Cancer Wrist Bands
Trends: At best they can be impressive
and entertaining, at worst pointless and wasteful. But as of late,
there is a different type of trend sweeping across the US. People
everywhere are buying the
breast cancer wristband that raises

The breast cancer wristband is more than a
means to raise money and awareness, it is an emblem of caring––and
we as human beings are lucky to have such a splendid adornment

all of your friends to buy one, you’ll actually be doing something

Breast Cancer is a difficult, often scary
reality for women, taking thousands of lives every year.
Conversely, the wristbands are ingeniously simple.
Just think it over for a moment: cancer feels senseless, and when
it strikes we strive to make sense of it. But often we feel
powerless to do anything. However, with these wrist bands
we CAN make a difference.
This little, seemingly innocuous thing, a small pink breast cancer
wristband is a wedge of possibility into the answer; the small cog
in the wheel of change that makes a difference! Any prospect that
can make that happen, to manifest the means to fund breast cancer
research, is something to get hold of––especially when it’s so
user-friendly! It truly is a no-brainer, so why would anyone shy
away from the possibility to help?
YOU can make a difference.
YOU can HELP!
This is more than a trend, this a giant
wave racing towards the future in the guise of a pink wristband and hopefully it will come crashing down soon,
washing away this unfortunate disease called cancer that has held
us in it’s fearful grip for so long.
Help for the scourge of breast cancer has
arrived in the simple form of a cute pink wristband ! Buy one or
twenty and tell everyone you know!!
