Breast Cancer has taken the lives of so many wonderful women. I often feel helpless when I hear about someone I know who has been affected by this horrible disease. Disclosure: Received the t-shirt in exchange for this post. 

One item on my bucket list is to participate in the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure. I discovered the Race for the Cure about 12 years ago when I was involved in the Mother’s & More group. Due to conflicts, I will not be able to participate in DC’s Race for the Cure this year, but I still wanted to help spread the word.

Hanes Honors Those Affected by Breast Cancer

In May we honor our mothers and it’s a wonderful time to remember those who are affected by breast cancer. The survivors, the husbands, the children, the friends and the parents and those who have lost their battle with breast cancer. Hanes has partnered with the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure to become the official T-shirt for the race. All race participants will receive a Hanes T-shirt.

Strength, Hope, and Fearlessness

One of my favorite actresses, Melina Kanakaredes of CSI:NY has designed three Hanes T-shirts as part of the Passionately Pink for the Cure campaign. The T-shirts come in 2 shades of pink, black & white and show strength, hope, and fearlessness for those affected by breast cancer. In exchange for this post, Hanes is sending me the pink Hope T-shirt and will send the same T-shirt to one of my readers. (details of contest at the end). Melina will also participate in several public service announcements sponsored by Hanes to increase awareness of breast cancer.
