It’s that time of the year again when, across the country, summer slides languidly into autumn. The leaves begin their colorful metamorphosis, the air takes on a pleasant briskness and the promise of the holiday season looms large. October certainly signifies change.
But there’s another special significance to October: It’s the National Breast Cancer Foundation’s Breast Cancer Awareness Month, that annual rite when millions from coast to coast don pink ribbons in support of women afflicted with—and recovering from—the terrible disease. Indeed, even though awareness of breast cancer continues to be strong, sadly every 13 minutes a woman dies from the disease, and one in every eight women in our country will develop invasive breast cancer at some point in their lifetimes. Research into early detection and better treatment options continues, but can only thrive with the support of everyone who holds dear their wives, girlfriends, sisters, mothers, grandmothers, daughters and aunts.
As part of this year’s Breast Cancer Awareness Month, RegencyShop.com is holding a unique online auction event in support of breast cancer research, with three stylish lounge chairs—an Eero Aarnio Ball Chair, Hanging Bubble Chair and Ibiza Chair, all 100-percent custom designed and colored in pink, the NBCF’s potent symbol of moral support to victims—up for bid.
As RegencyShop.com notes, this is wonderful opportunity to become a “special kind of hero” in October by supporting a national and global cause injected with the fun and competition of an online contest. As the old saying goes, “be the change you want to see in the world,” and you may just get a one-of-a-kind lounge chair too boot. And of course, all proceeds from this unique virtual event will benefit breast cancer research charities.
This month, as you contemplate the coming winter, take a moment to think about the millions of women suffering from this deadly disease, and consider taking a seat for Breast Cancer Awareness Month.
