The prize was provided by Nautica, but Nautica is not a sponsor, administrator, or involved in any other way with this giveaway. All opinions expressed in the post are my own and not those of Nautica.
I think it’s important because most of us know or will know someone who has breast cancer and I think the more we can do to fundraise and raise awareness the better.

My good friend Barb passed away from breast cancer this year. It’s a serious and deadly disease and not everyone who is diagnosed makes it out alive. I’m walking in the 60 mile Susan G. Komen 3-Day for a Cure in Barb’s honor this year and know it’s going to be a very powerful experience.

It’s so important to “Race for the Cure” (and now “Sleep in for the Cure” is a great option too!). I once participated in Breast Cancer Walk (it was for extra credit in school). The younger me thought “Eh, it will be just an easy stroll with a bunch of families.” I was so wrong! When I showed up and saw all those people and thought what the size of the crowd must of meant to them, I was blown away. It was like hope and love and sadness had all come together and manifested themselves in a visible net of support for everyone involved. My aunt died from breast cancer when I was very little and I just suddenly felt her there with me, as if she was saying, “Wow, I wish this had been around when I went through this fight on my own.” I feel so passionately about anything that supports awareness…keep on keeping on with this!

Women’s issues are still very much underrepresented and discriminated against in today’s society. Thus, it is very important to keep breast cancer a forerunner.
Most of us have been affected by breast cancer one way or another and we need to ensure that attention, funding, and research is a top priority!

Two people who were near and dear to me have had breast cancer and survived. i think it is important to be aware of it, because even those who are the healthiest and take good care of themselves are susceptible to breast cancer. The earlier it is the detected, the better your chances to overcome it!

It’s important to ‘Sleep in for the Cure’ because everyone can do it – now there’s no excuse! We do it for our mothers, our sisters, our daughters, our wives – ourselves.
