5 Ways to Support Breast Cancer Awareness with Paracord

Posted by Brita on Oct 5th 2017

October is Breast Cancer Awareness month. Many of us have been affected by breast cancer in some way or another, whether it be a close friend, family member, or even ourselves. I have been affected by breast cancer in a variety of ways – both close family and friends have been diagnosed (and beaten!) the disease. However, there are some who are not as fortunate. 

Here are some fast facts about breast cancer in the US:

With that in mind, there are many ways to help, raise awareness, give back, and show your support for those affected by this disease. Here are 5 ways to show your support for this noble cause:

1. Breast Cancer Awareness Paracord Colors

These colors are great for showing your support this month. Any paracord project will immediately become festive and supportive when the colors are added.
