Breast Cancer Awareness: Snuggie & $100 Amazon Gift Card (Ends 10/25)

 

Breast Cancer Awareness Giveaway
$100 Amazon Gift Card & 
PiNK Breast Cancer Awareness Snuggie

MamaNYC is proud to present another fantastic giveaway for readers! In honor of my grandmother whom I lost in late-June of this year to breast cancer, I am doing my part to spread awareness and any resources I come across for the month of October. As you probably know, October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Although I do what I can to raise awareness year round, October is special – we can hound and remind our co-workers, friends, fellow bloggers, or strangers on the street: do your self-checks and schedule a mammogram!

A few days ago, I posted my first Breast Cancer Awareness post. Click here if you would like to read my post and learn a little bit about what happened to my grandmother. I will be writing a few more posts throughout the month of October in order to do my part and raise awareness. I miss my grandmother dearly and have watched many other women in my life pass away or undergo mastectomies due to breast cancer. She lived a long and beautiful life that would have gone on for much longer if not for her diagnoses in November 2009.

She was 89-years old when she passed away and we would have celebrated her 90th birthday on October 25th. Therefore, I am pleased to giveaway two great prizes! Winner will receive (1) one $100 Amazon.com gift card and a limited edition PINK Snuggie! This giveaway will end on my grandmothers 90th birthday – so I am glad I can share her legacy with all of you.

This giveaway will run from September 28th until October 25th at 11:59PM EST. US & Canada; 18+ in order to be eligible for these prizes. Winner will be notified by email on October 26th and have 48-hours to reply or a new winner will be selected. All entries MUST be entered using Rafflecopter. I randomly check entries for validity and will delete ALL entries if (1) Mandatory Entry is not completed; (2) one of your entries is not confirmed or completed and I assume you did not check or possibly lied on your entry. Otherwise, thank you for coming by and good luck everyone!

  7. Shel says

    My stepmother had breast cancer; she got it in her late 40's and luckily, they caught it early. She's the reason I make sure I examine my own breasts and get yearly mammograms.

  8. SocialStudiesSoubret says

    My grandfather died of cancer. I know it isn't breast cancer but thankfully I don't know anyone who has had breast cancer :D

  9. says

    I am fortunate enough to not know anyone who has had breast cancer.. however, several of my family members have had died from other types of cancer. A cause close to my heart is animal rights. Thank you for the entry.

  13. Tracy says

    Lost both my grandmother and great-grandmother to the big 'C'. My mom battled twice and won, so this is definitely a cause near and dear to my heart! This is a great way to tribute her and remind women the importance of self examination and PREVENTION!

  14. Tethered Mommy says

    Hello there! I spread awareness by being constantly aware of my own health. This allows me to put more energy into caring for the health of others.

  16. Timbo says

    The only cause I think is worthy of spreading is that of the Word of God :)Please feel free to contact me at – sales4545 at gmail dot com

  17. Amber says

    This is a beautiful post. I lost my grandmother to cancer as well, it's been 10 years this month and I still miss her every day.

  18. Holly Wilson says

    I know several people that have or had breast cancer. Some are survivors and some are no longer with us, but I try to buy all the "pink" stuff when October comes around to spread awareness. Doesn't hurt that it's my favorite color ;)

  19. Nanbon44 says

    I have several friends who are survivors of breast cancer and I always visit the web site and push the button to help others get their tests….

  20. sksweeps says

    My mom is a breast cancer survivor. I'm sorry to hear about your grandmother but what a lovely and touching way to honor her memory!sksweeps (at) earthlink (dot) net

  21. Lynda Del. says

    Thankfully and I haven't experienced breast cancer nor have I known anyone personally who is/was afflicted by it, knock on wood. This is a fantastic Giveaway, so thank you for the chance!

  22. Heidi Gail says

    There is no pink ribbon for uterine cancer which is what I had, so I keep the breast cancer pink ribbon on my purse.

  23. Tes283 says

    My cause is to change 2 negative words "no" and "problem" into "My pleasure". It is small but kindness is always appreciated. I like doing random acts of kindness. Share an umbrella, say thank you, and be kind. tes 1283 yahoo

  24. mommytorres says

    I have a breast cancer pin, and a few pens that I use to keep awareness in mind. My other cause is homelessness. My husband, myself, and our 3 children were homeless for nearly a year (2008-09) and became members of the 'new face of homelessness' as we became homeless due to causes outside of our control. Our landlord passed away and while we were looking for a new place to live, my husband was laid off after 17 yrs with his company. We have no criminal history, no drug or alcohol issues, no domestic problems…we just had the rug pulled from under us. I now volunteer with the shelter that helped us when we had nowhere to go, donate when we can, and I serve on their advisory board.

  25. Susan E. says

    It's wonderful that you are calling attention to this. No one in my family has had breast cancer, but there have been other cancers.

  26. sustahl says

    Hi! My mother and maternal grandmother both had breast cancer, so I got my first mammogram when I was 35 and a DNA test for the breast cancer marker. Luckily, I don't have the marker, but there is still a chance I could develop breast cancer. I urge everyone to get their mammogramsprizeentry @ wesharewithyou dot com

  27. Amy says

    Breast cancer is too common these days, almost everyone would know someone who has it, friends or family members. We should do our best to talk to our girl friends whenever we have a chance.amy [at] utry [dot] it

  28. Lisa says

    Breast cancer is a very important cause but
    my fiance had testicular cancer and I think there should be a lot more awareness for men than there is. He was not diagnosed until the final stage and he was only 22 when diagnosed. I know that testicular cancer has a better prognosis than breast cancer but awareness for both are very important to me.

  32. brittney says

    my grandmother died of breast cancer, so it's something that is very close to my heart.
    brittneydejajason at gmail dot com

  33. kalea_kane says

    I am so sorry for your loss. My sister-in-law is a breast cancer survivor, and in the past two years, three of my friend have been diagnosed and are currently in treatment or recovering from their own diagnoses. It seems that no one is untouched anymore by this tragic disease. Thank you for posting for breast cancer awareness. We support breast cancer research with donations and by purchasing products that give to research. Another cause close to my heart are children and we support Compassion International by child sponsorship. We sponsor a little girl named Michele and have done so for four years now.

  34. says

    I'm all for any kind of awareness or fund raising for any kind of cancer. My mom had breast cancer at 25, hubby had Hodgkin's Disease at 9, and his mom and grandmother both had ovarian cancer in the last couple of years. They are all healthy and strong today so all this work people are doing is working.

  35. SmallFootprints says

    Thanks so much for this opportunity! There is a wonderful program in my town called "Ladies Night Out" … they offer free mammograms to women who don't have insurance. It's a great program … part of a Wellness program initiated by the county. So … to spread the word, I put their banners up all over town. :-)

    So Ladies … GET A MAMMOGRAM!!!

  36. says

    My grandmother died from breast cancer in the early 1980's. A dear friend of mine was battling cancer last year, and she beat it. She underwent a double mastectomy. I do everything I can to support breast cancer.

    itsjustme62613 at gmail.com

  37. says

    by spreading the word about the walks and fundraisers they hold. I also donate what I can to them. My grandmother had breast cancer and I have many friends who have parents or family members with it as well.

  38. PeaceLoveandPets says

    The cause near and dear to my heart is lung issues…..COPD, Emphysema, Lung Cancer. Having lost my Mom to COPD/Emphysema I am very affected by these diseases. I try to educate anyone I can of prevention.

  39. says

    Hello! I love seeing how breast cancer awareness is so wide spread. I especially love seeing 300lb men on a football field with pink sneakers on! :) Great cause and great support!

  40. says

    What a wonderful giveaway. I really do believe in breast cancer awareness. someone who is like an aunt to me has had it for five years now. another cause I care about is childhood cancer and st. jude's as well as kidney awareness.

  41. says

    I try my hardest to help spread awareness about diabetes as someone very close to me was diagnosed recently, so I've been learning as much as I can and sharing everything that I learn. Thanks for the chance! :)
    whitechocolatecherries at gmail.com

  42. Heather Fawcett says

    Breast cancer does run in my family and I do spread its awareness but I also want to spread another that is close to my heart. My youngest son has asperger's syndrome (High functioning autism) and want to spread awareness about autism.

  43. Michelle Riebeek says

    I think it's wonderful all people do for the cause. I don't have a close connection to it but I always want to support those who do!

  44. heather stevens says

    i try to raise` awarenes by calling my friends and asking them if they have done thier monthly breast exams

  45. Ann F says

    Several of my coworkers have or have had breast cancer. I participate in the annual breast cancer awareness fundraiser walk.

    abfantom at yahoo dot com

  46. says

    Apart from spreading awareness with the help of my blog about breast cancer, I also have other causes like helping under privileged children in our village.

  47. trishden says

    Hello, so sorry you lost your Grandmother to breast cancer. I had a good friend pass away due to this hideaous disease. She was only in her 50s and she suffered greatly. What a great homage to your grandmother. Thanks for the giveaway!

  48. Peggy says

    Hello…nice giveaway, and great to be aware. I'm stay on top of my own awareness by paying close attention to myself monthly…need to be here for my kiddos and everyone else who needs me!

  49. Heather Holmberg says

    I have been blessed, no friends or family or even extended family have been affected by Breast Cancer, or any cancer for that fact. I have seen what it does to families. Hope there is a cure soon.

  50. bridget3420 says

    I really hope they find a cure for any kind of cancer soon. I haven't lost anyone to the disease but I know if affects a lot of people. Heart disease is a cause close to my heart.

  51. says

    I understand everything you are talking about. My mother passed away on September 18, 2011 at the age of 45 from Triple Negative breast cancer. She lived and battled for 5 years and I guess her body just couldn't take anymore. I found myself blogging about it a few months before she passed and writing your feelings really does help. Triple Negative is something that gets talked about a lot, but you cannot cure it. The average life span is 5 years and those 5 years are a living hell for the person suffering. Hopefully one day they will find a treatment or a least find something so people diagnosed can live a long life

  52. Erin M. says

    My Aunt passed away when I was young due to Breast Cancer.
    I am so glad that through the years the awareness is building towards healing!!

  53. stephanie miller says

    thanks for the opportunity to win this, we could really use this right now. we usually have bake sales in oct, with the help of friend michelle, she has had several family members pass away from complications of breast cancer. this year my husband of 13 yrs walked out on my daughter and i last wk, i am disabled, and no income. so this year, i have no money to buy supplies to bake for the sale, i have no money for brigids birthday party, or even a halloween costume. this would be such a blessing!

  54. Carissa says

    When I go to the PBR rodeos, I see a lot of people wearing pink-men included! It really inspires me to spread awareness!

  55. says

    cancer is huge to me. My dad is battling stage 4 lung cancer and it recently spread to his brain. He will start radiation on his brain and iv chemo for his lungs once again. It hits so close to home. I know i need to be aware of cancer since it is clearly in my genes and i have seen a close one struggle with this.

  56. says

    My Mom is a survivor for Breast Cancer TWICE! That fact alone scares me! So I make sure to have a mammogram yearly for hers were found that way in early stages. I am spreading the awareness by educating my two grown daughters and in due time, my two beautiful granddaughters.

    Every and I mean EVERY woman should be diligent in herself to be checked, insist on being checked. Early detection is better than possibly ignoring it until it is too late!

    Women, Take care of yourself!

  57. Shannon says

    Great giveaway! I think I'd really love a pink snuggle and it's so great that you are helping raise awareness for breast cancer too.

  58. Roy F. says

    Hello. I support pink products in support of breast cancer. Another cause that's close to my heart is parkinson's, which my father had.

  59. Laura H. says

    Thankfully no one close to me has had to experience breast cancer and, God willing, it remains that way. However, my dad passed away from prostate cancer so I'm not unfamiliar, unfortunately, with the "C word" as my dad used to call it.

  60. says

    My cousin has breast cancer that hasn't gone in remission at all for the past 6 years. My mother and grandmother both had pre-cancerous cells removed from their breast, so breast cancer is a big deal for our family!

  61. June M. says

    My grandmother is a breast cancer survivor (15 years) and I support breast cancer awareness whenever I can. This is generally the only pink things I will buy for myself.

  62. Stacey A Smith says

    My Grandma had it and I keep hoping that know one else in my family ever gets it.So I'm very in to Breast Cancer Awareness.

  63. says

    My family has a history of heart disease and diabetes, but not cancer of any sort thank goodness. However, I found out this year that my favorite high school French teacher is a breast cancer survivor. *Thanks* for the giveaway!

  64. Tiffany says

    Thank you so much for taking the time to spread awareness of breast cancer. It truly impacts women and families of all ages.

  65. Faride Hale says

    I usually donate money. This year we participated in a church event, and purchased some items to benefit the cause

  66. Gracie L. says

    I am a 7 year very high stage BC Survivor and I spread awareness by using my own self as an example. breezyinaz at gmail dot com

  67. Penny W says

    Thank you for the giveaway! Another cause close to my heart is Autism awareness as I have a nephew that has autism.

  68. Pauline M says

    This is an issue that is very close to me. My mother has four sisters, all of which have had to deal with breast cancer, so just a reminder that mammograms are extremely important!

  69. Anne Taylor says

    My mom passed away from cancer 2 years ago this Oct 17th. Needless to say its become a cause I'm very passionate about!

    Thanks

  70. Marion Scharf says

    My grandmother died from breast cancer and my mother in law has survived twice. This is a cause that I support not only for myself but also for the people I love.

  71. Aaron Bretveld says

    I just found out in the last couple days that a co-worker has breast cancer, she isn't the first but is definitely the most recent.

  72. Rachel Brooks says

    Thanks for the awesome giveaway! This cause is important, but one that has always been close to my heart is hurt and/or neglected animals. I wish I could adopt all of the shelter animals and make them feel better!

  73. clynsg says

    Even if you are fortunate enough that there are no family members who have had breast cancer, it is almost impossible to completely escape having a friend, co-worker, etc, who has dealt with the disease,either themselves or one of their family members. And don't forget that men can also get breast cancer, although at a much lower rate.

  74. black Ultra Tall Ugg says

    Romantic Flower Uggs When I get bored in the office I just get started in browsing for most kind of weblogs. After checking a large amount of content, I similar the particular browser to be extremely bored as the articles and reviews work for a handful of words put together. Nonetheless, Making it very divulge i had been moving your website and I am floored with your content articles. Finally I found another kid that understands how to write a rare content approximately any usual affair. Well done! Ultimate Bind Uggs

  75. Teresa Moore says

    I have only known a couple of people with breast cancer. Unfortunately, one lost her battle to it. The other lady is fighting it now. Thank u for this giveaway.

  76. Natalie U. says

    I'm happy they are bringing more awareness to breast cancer. I noticed Safeway is also having something going that if you buy certain items, they will donate to the cause, and when you checkout they are also taking donations.

  77. linda r says

    So sorry about your Grandmother. I volunter with abused children and help to promote education. Good blog and thank you for the giveaway!

  78. says

    A really nice giveaway, both for the cause it brings awareness to and for the fact that Snuggies are getting kind of appealing as the weather turns cooler. Brrr.

  79. says

    I just had an aunt who went thru a full mastectomy due to breast cancer. It was hard on all of us, but especially the women in our family. As of then, our medical histories were pretty clear. And now it was kind of an eye opener that it was something to watch out for.

  80. says

    Hello there, simply turned into aware of your blog thru Google, and found that it is really informative. I?m gonna watch out for brussels. I will appreciate if you continue this in future. A lot of other folks will be benefited from your writing. Cheers!

  81. Stacey Dempsey says

    i dont have anyone luckily in my family or friends who have breast cancer , but we have dealt wit other kinds and people need all the support they can get, i love all the companies who are supporting this cause

  82. Doris Calvert says

    I used to walk but now that I am limited all I can do is donate! I have had 3 friends that died from this and they were only in their 30′s and 40′s!

  83. Juana Esparza says

    Thanks for the chance & for spreading awareness. When I was a kid I lost my grandma to cancer too, and 8 yrs ago I lost one of my male cousins to cancer.

  84. Lisa says

    I really appreciate that Snuggy is joining in on raising awareness and money for Breast Cancer especially since they are such a popular product that everyone loves.

  85. Jennifer Pickett says

    Thank you for a very nice giveaway and for raising breast cancer awareness. It’s lovely that you are doing this for your Grandmother. It’s a truly wonderful idea.

  86. Rochelle says

    Breast Cancer Awareness is so important! I am so sorry for your loss! Thanks for reminding all of us women to regularly check for lumps and get our mammorgrams.

  87. Karla Sceviour says

    Thank you for the giveaway! Anything that raises awareness for any kind of cancer is very dear to me as I lost my mother to ovarian cancer when she was 49 years old..
    ksceviour at hotmail dot com

  88. Leanne says

    Thank you so much for the giveaway and raising awareness for such a wonderful cause for so many people dear to our hearts. I have a very close friend who is going thru breast cancer for the second time in her life and is very young and this has been very hard on her and her family. I have been with her thru the good and the bad times and know that the good lord above is taking care of her and all the others who are fighting this ugly disease and know that one day there will be a cure for it. May god bless you all!

  89. ginette4 says

    great giveaway, thank you, I have lost so many people close to me from cancer, anything to raise cancer awareness I’m in, whether walking for cancer or book riots

  91. joannie sparks says

    I try to keep my daughters and granddaughter up to dare on their mamogram but more on cerical cancer. I had cancer in my womb and had hystoctoromy early so i try to make sure they at least keep their checkups, Thats all i can do i am disablility . i Live in pain 24/7 and have 2 rare blood diseases so i can barely help myselp. But i do stay on them. Thanks Joannie

  92. Geoff K says

    I try to spread awareness by supporting and sponsoring friends and family members in the Walk for the Cure, wearing my pink ribbon tee-shirt, and donating to cancer research charities directly. Thanks!

  93. Betty says

    At 13 my daughter babysat for a 4 yo who had JD. His mother was a nurse and really put a lot of effort into teaching my daughter about how to test, what to do, when to call the parents. Seriously, I was the one most nervous about this babysitting job.
    In a neighboring town, we have had the tragedy of an 8yo perfectly normal girl go into a diabetic coma during a sleepover. What a tragedy
    While our family has not suffered JD, we have friends and their our students with JD in both of my kids schools.
    There are days I have dark thoughts about how profitable it is to sell products needed because of these life threatening diseases, so profitable that development of a cure would create losses. hmmm like I said, dark thoughts

  94. Sarah L says

    Cervical cancer has killed 3 friends within the last year. I know at least a dozen breast cancer survivors.
    Thanks for the contest.

  95. Patricia Pinkston says

    I'm so sorry for your loss. It seems almost every family has had a loved one pass away from this disease. My husband lost an aunt and a sister to breast cancer. This giveaway is a wonderful way to honor your grandmother.
    (By the way, I had my mammogram last week)

  96. Debbie says

    Thanks so much for promoting awareness. Everything that can be done to raise more awareness to the horrible disease is awesome. I’ve lost several family and friends to this. So thank you.

  97. Sarah says

    Hello!
    I have not personally been affected by breast cancer. I think it's wonderful that you are spreading awareness about it, though. For me, a cause I really care about is preventing child abuse, having been personally affected by it myself. I spread awareness by keeping up with news stories and commenting on blogs, as well as posting information on my Facebook or Twitter accounts, and engaging in dialogue about the issue whenever the opportunity comes. I think a common theme between this cause and the cause of spreading awareness about breast cancer, is being afflicted by something over which you have no control. I have found that being an activist about my cause has made me feel empowered, and I hope your activism for breast cancer awareness gives you a sense of empowerment as well.

  98. Lanicsha Wynn says

    Thanks a lot for this giveaway and spreading awareness, and sorry for your loss. My aunt died in 2005 form breast cancer.

  99. Leigh Sabey says

    I recently made a donation for a friend who was doing the 3-day Susan G. Komen walk. Thank you for the giveaway!

  100. hcl says

    I spread awareness by talking about it with my friends, family and coworkers. Educating people on Learning Disabilities is another passion. It's amazing to me how people think learning differently, dyslexia, etc makes a child "stupid". Very sad.

  101. Katrina James says

    Multiple members of my family have passed away from cancers that were detected too late- It's really important to spread the word around to always be aware.

  102. Pinky Sade says

    My aunt passed away from breast cancer and she kept it a secret from people who were not close family, so it shocked a lot of people when she passed as she never looked like she was sick. She was a strong and cheerful person with an optimistic look on life.

  103. Kelly says

    With having so many aunts diagnosed with this awful disease, I do what I can to raise awareness! We don't have a run site here for the Run for the Cure, but we still raise funds (over 1000$ this year) and walk on the run date. I'm a teacher and decorate my cart that goes from class to class in pink for this month and always wear my Breast Action Coalition bracelet! :)

  104. Kerry says

    This cause is important to me. One of my friends was just diagnosed with breast cancer and will be having a bilateral mastectomy on Monday.

  105. Bobbi Kilbarger says

    I am an advocate for Colon Cancer research. My father died of it when I was 21. I want all cancers to be eradicated.

  106. DAYLE B. says

    What a amazing prize, love to read. Would be nice
    to snuggle up with the wrap.
    Have a much loved auntie that lost with breast C.
    So sad. Donate money and support when I can.

  107. says

    This awful disease has hit my family more than once. We lost my grandmother to it back in 1988 and my mother was diagnosed nearly 4 years ago. The cause is near and dear to my heart and I pray that one day there is a cure before it takes another precious life!

  108. ANGEL JACKLYN says

    LOVE THIS GIVEAWAY! ALL I HAVE TO DO TO SPREAD AWARENESS IS TELL PEOPLE HOW MANY WOMAN IN MY FAMILY HAVE BEEN AFFLICTED WITH BREAST CANCER & IN RETURN, HAVE HAD TO HAVE THEIR BREASTS SURGICALLY REMOVED. THAT SCARES ME, SO YOU CAN IMAGINE.

  109. Nicole S. says

    Breast cancer runs in my step sisters family. Her grandmother showed us how to do self checks when we were young (before we even had breasts).

  110. says

    My family and I spend a lot of time trying to raise awareness among young women. My sister was 23 when she noticed a weird lump, she died right after her 25th birthday because she didn’t have it checked for over a year.

  111. Shar Donoho says

    I have a close friend that was diagnosed with breast ca almost 5 yrs ago and she is doing great! (And I just had my mammogram done about 10 days ago with great results.) Thanks!

  112. says

    I will tell you that personally I haven’t done anything except support the cause and buy things that donate to the breast cancer research. Our town here is all in pink, pink ribbons, the post office painted their curb post, the hospitals put pink lights out to light up the outside. I am glad that it has become a major deal now, as it has always been in peoples lives.

  113. Marianne G says

    I lost a good friend to cancer in August. She was only 42 and died on my birthday. I want to do more to help cure this disease!

  114. Donna B. says

    Hello, and thank you for the giveaway! We do a lot of charitable things at work for BCA, it’s a cause close to the CEO’s heart.

  115. Mandala says

    Thanks for the chance. I am involved in our community cancer awareness program – we hold group educational meetings. Thanks!

  116. misskallie2000 says

    thanks for the giveaway.

  119. Brandi Stager says

    I have been an avid Breast Cancer awareness supporter long before it was a “big” thing, I’ve lost loved ones to the disease and I can only hope that in my lifetime or my daughter’s there will be a magic pill to cure it without the awful side effects that women face today.

      Kimberly,

      I actually changed my Twitter handle 2 weeks ago and didn’t update the Rafflecopter widget. I will do it now – my new handle is @Mamanycnet – Twitter “told me” that all of my followers would just be directed/automatically transferred to my new handle! Should have known.. Thanks!

  120. Jamie Brigham says

    I spread awareness about Breast Cancer by making purchases from sites that donate part of the proceeds if not a all to breast cancer research

  121. Audrey B says

    Glad you were fortunate enough to have your grandma for 89 years, my Gram is 102 and survived lymphoma after being diagnosed in her 90s.

  122. Ada Miller says

    Thanks for this awesome giveaway & raising awareness for this great cause.

    **have issues with staying connected via GFC on firefox which i use. When i close browser & come back it shows me not connected GFC & have to sign back in. On Chrome it shows i stay connected with all blogs GFC,so not sure if its FF being silly or really not staying connected. Just wanted to let you know im having issues because i do connected with ALL blogs regardless if its a entry into a giveaway or not because it helps me find my favorite blogs by going to google account

    • says

      Ada,

      Thanks for stopping by! The issue that you are describing is NOT just you – it is everyone! It is very annoying (I can’t stand it!), but you will probably have to sign back in every single time to make sure you are already following whatever blog you are visiting. It’s always been that way and I wish they would fix it! It amazes me that GFC is a Google product, yet it has so many technical issues! I use Chrome 99.9% of the time and constantly have to sign back in. It is a strange day when I come across 2-3 blogs in a row that show I am already signed in!

      Feel free to contact me if you have any other questions!

  123. Sara B says

    I like to support legal aid in central virginia. They help victims of domestic violence and cancer patients with legal issues.

  124. Lauren S. says

    I’m a graduate student conducting research on both lung cancer and chronic myelogenous leukemia. I hope one day, the element of “cancer” can be permanently removed from this earth!

  125. Chelsea Saulpaugh says

    I try to support all cancer causes including breast cancer. I purchase “pink” products and donate to the cause.

  126. Dawn says

    My job has a walking contest every year to raise money for breast cancer awareness. I hoping to raise the most money this year.

  127. Jolene Felster says

    Very sorry to hear about your Grandmother, and i think its incredibly nice what youre doing. I try to remind all of my family to remember to get their mammograms and get checked out by a doctor, as cancer runs in our family rampantly.
    So thank you for what youre doing and the giveaway! I appreciate it!

  128. Jayne Townsley says

    I have never personally known someone who had breast cancer. As far as charities, my favorite one to support is Red Cross. They were a blessing to our communities…Carl Junction in 2003 and Joplin 2011…when we were hit by tornadoes.

  129. Mary Beth Elderton says

    I had a scare a couple of years ago–a mammogram revealed a fairly large lump. Luckily a biopsy proved it to be harmless, but the wait for the results was nerve-racking. I spread awareness by encouraging women my age not to be afraid of the mammogram–it’s a bit uncomfortable, but it doesn’t hurt. And think of what it could find!

  130. Samantha Williams says

    My aunt is a survivor of breast cancer, I hope to raise more awareness by promoting self- screening and preventative measures.

    This giveaway is a wonderful tribute to your grandmother.

  131. Gloria says

    I’ll buy products that support the cause. My husband’s grandma had it in her eighties. She beat it, but said she wouldn’t go through treatment again. Thanks for the giveaway!

  132. Jen says

    Hello. I’m not too involved with breast cancer, but I do work to promote fundraising for childhood cancer and diseases.

  133. Jessica Welsh says

    Hello! I spread awareness by telling everyone about my grandmother and great grandmother who both lost their lives to breast cancer, and about my mom who owns a hair shop that supplies wigs and hair replacement for chemo patients… I am also an active member of Autism awareness, as I have a child with aspergers.

  134. Stephanie Gaffney says

    Thanks for supporting the breast cancer awareness cause! My grandmother survived breast cancer and it really hits home to see so many good things being done to support the cause.

  135. says

    I don’t do anything formal, just encourage my lady friends to do self exams and take care of themselves. Sometimes we forget to just take care of ourselves and it’s nice to get that “push” to do it from a friend.

  136. Tracy Robertson says

    I am so sorry for your loss, but it is good that your Grandma still had a very long life! Marie Claire magazine had a very interesting article in their October issue. Breast cancer (or any cancer!) research is such an important cause, but unfortunately a lot of companies are selling breast cancer items (the various pink objects) and we assume that some of the proceeds are going to breast cancer research, but that is not always the case.

  137. says

    Sorry to hear you lost your grandmother! I think it is wonderful that you are posting to raise breast cancer awareness though. What a great thing to do in her memory.

  138. Carole Spring says

    I’m sorry for the loss of your grandmother.
    I support the Susan G. Komen Race For The Cure. I purchase products that are donating a percentage of their profits to Breast Cancer Awareness or the Susan G. Komen foundation. I save & mail in the specially marked pink lids that are on Yoplait Yogurt.
    Thank you for this great giveaway!

  139. Pauline M says

    I have four aunt’s – all have had to fight breast cancer in the last 10 years…. all are doing great because it was caught early. I can’t stress how important an annual exam is for all women.

  140. Denise mcdonuts says

    The last time I supports bc awareness was Sunday at the cowboys patriots game I bought some pink shirts and other stuff!

  141. says

    The new imaging techniques are actually better than mammograms. They’re more accurate. Plus, mammograms use radiation, which can…cause cancer.

    I’m so sorry for your loss. :(

  142. Kasee Johnson says

    Cancer has taken several of my family members, so I do my best to support ALL cancer awareness. Thank you for doing your part and sharing your story.

  143. Holly S. says

    Hi! Thanks for supporting a cause that is so close to so many people. Great giveaway! Someone is going to enjoy this!

  144. Lisa M says

    Hi! I support breast cancer awareness as I much as I can, I donate whenever possible and purchase the pink ribbon merchandise when I can (I’m a college student, money is tight lol) Breast cancer runs in my family and it’s very scary because everyone in my family that has had it, passed away from it. I plan to make sure me and my loved ones stay healthy and get annual exams. Thank you for the giveaway! :)

  145. Brett Blose says

    Thanks for spreading awareness about this important issue. My wife’s friend recently became cancer free and she is just 29 years old.

  146. Andrea Williams says

    Thanks for hosting the giveaway! My mom was diagnosed about a year and a half ago so this cause is becoming a lot more real to me.

  147. Janene Scarborough says

    I haven’t been affected personally by this, thank heavens, but one cause that has been close to my heart is Cystic Fibrosis, My nephew passed away from this in 96 and suffered all his life, I now give monthly to them and Pray that no one has to go through what he did.

  148. Patricia E. says

    I have had several relatives on my father’s side of my family be diagnosed with breast cancer. My grandma’s sister died from breast cancer.

  149. Kaylie says

    This is such a serious issue. I hope that everyone gives a hand to every patients out there to cheer them up and give them mental support to get over their disease

  150. gibberish says

    Thanks for the giveaway.
    Just a suggestion : in your current giveaways box at the top right of this page, it would be really great if you could list if each giveaway was Canadian & U.S. or just U.S. etc.

  151. Robin Quick says

    Great giveaway. I wear my pink ribbon and buy a lot of the pink items to help raise awareness of breast cancer.

  152. hippie4ever says

    I’m glad that you were able to share so many years with your Grandmom. My paternal grandmother passed away when she was 83 from Emphysema, I miss her.

  153. says

    Breast Cancer awareness is fairly new to me – I haven’t known anyone with it until last week, when we all found out that my sister in law has a very aggressive cancer. Her youngest is only 3 and she has NO insurance. She works a good job, but in a small business that can’t afford health insurance for its employees. I have a feeling she’s going to become a poster case for universal health insurance.

  154. says

    I have a dear friend who is a breast cancer survivor. We just celebrated here 67th birthday last month. Being a woman well over 40 I now give myself the greatest birthday gift of an annual mammogram. I also remind my gal friends over 40 on their birthdays as well.

    Thank you for this wonderful giveaway!

    Weird…I went to enter one of your other giveaways, then came back here to add one additional entry for entering another giveaway, but the rafflecopter only showed that I had done the mandatory entry!? I re-did several of my entries here again, then thought I better let you know about this so I don’t end up with double entries.

  156. Kimberly Ann says

    Hi! I think a good way to raise awareness is to not be afraid to talk about it! Some people are so uptight & uncomfortable talking about their bodies that theyre too embarassed to ask questions or see a doctor when they think something is wrong.

  157. says

    I had a two aunts pass away from cancer. I try to support my cousins emotionally, and take care of my own health.I also try to do things for special needs children since I had a daughter that passed away in 2006 at age 4. I try to take what I learned to help others.

  158. katfam says

    I’ve never known anyone that has had it. While this is good, it is weird considering how much coverage this topic gets!

  159. patricia hamm says

    My best friend’s mom has breast cancer. I truly love the fact there is so much information out there to help those that have the cancer. The information can educate people that are lucky enough not to have to deal with the cancer.

  160. steph p says

    when i was growing up my mothers best friend Miss Helen took a special interest in me she became my second mother,from her I learned about gardening and cooking and living your life with joy. she won her first battle with breast cancer when i was about 10,but she ended up devolping breast cancer again and died when i was 14, she is my hero. She taught me about patience and love and i miss her still 24 yrs later

  161. Aisling says

    My mother lost her battle with breast cancer, so I’m conscientious about self-exams, mammograms and reminding others.

  162. Amber H. says

    I try to donate in any way I can, whether it be monetarily, volunteering time or anything else. I also try to remember to be thankful for every day & for my family & friends’ good health, even when they are driving me crazy!

  163. Charlotte Varner says

    Thanks for the awesome giveaway!! Breast Cancer Awareness is very important and to make sure women are go to their doctors on a regular basis for checkups, and to get mammograms. It’s also very important to do self exams and if you find something out of the orinary don’t blow it off like it’s nothing!! Very important to raise awareness of all of these. Also, to stay fit and make sure your getting your exercise.

  164. Letessha W says

    Hi! I spread awareness at facebook and twitter. Other causes I care about are diabetes, epilepsy, autism, and astma.

    We live in a very small town and the lady that owns a restaurant here in town found out she has breast cancer. My daughter works for her.

  167. Carol L says

    Thank you for helping to battle this disease. My 24 year old daughter is a survivor of Osteo-Sarcoma. She’s been in remission since she was 8 years old. :) Thanks for the opportunity.

    I will do whatever I can to help with breast cancer awareness. I like to buy “pink” products to help give money to breast cancer charities.

  169. Deedles says

    We have not been affected by breast cancer but my father and brother but had-have lung cancer.
    All cancer awareness is important. Great cause and giveaway!

  170. Heather! says

    I love that so many bloggers are celebrating Breast Cancer Awareness month with this event and others! This horrible disease has hit hard this year. I lost a coworker and friend to it a few months ago, and right now another good friend of mine is still fighting…and kicking breast cancer’s ass! Thanks for supporting the cause!

  171. says

    I really don’t do much too promote breast cancer awareness. I might buy a little something here or there where the funds go to research or awareness.

  172. NeraCaligula says

    I donate to breast cancer foundations as much as I can/ when I can, and buy a lot of products that are for breast cancer awareness that give money to a foundation. I also have a breast cancer ribbon tattooed on my arm in honor of my mom and grandma. So hopefully when people see it it reminds them about the importance of breast cancer awareness and being proactive with their health.

  173. Crystal says

    I am so glad you had a wonderful grandma!! We must find a cure,thank you for participating in breast cancer awareness :)

  174. Christy Ann says

    Sorry about your grandmother. I lost my own grandma to cancer and both of my aunts are breast cancer survivors. Thanks for spreading awareness!

  175. Janet Jackson says

    thanks for the chance to participate :) cancer in genral and altimers are the 2 causes that have most closely effected my families life.

  176. Olivia Merifield says

    This cause is very close to my heart because my mother-in-law was affected by it. Another cause which I feel very stronly about and really would love to spread awareness about is Intracranial Hypertension. I was diagnosed about a year ago. It is a rare disease where the spinal fluid doesn’t regulate correctly and puts pressure on the brain. There is no cure and it has an impact on my life daily! It’s important for us to recognize the struggles that each of us go through, whether they can be seen on the outside or not.

  177. Rachel Runyan says

    My Grandmother and Aunt both had breast cancer. My Aunt is a breast cancer survivor and an inspiration to all of us. I make sure to spread the word about early detection and where to get more information. I hoping one day, that i will be well enough to participate in a walk. My fingers are crossed for next year since the doctor’s just discovered I have Addison’s Disease and I’m finally now receiving treatment.

  178. Angela Winesburg says

    My grandmother died of breast cancer just before I was born, I want to educate others to prevent them from becoming statistics, thanks

  179. ACMommy3 says

    Wow, I think it is really special how you cherish your grandmother, I’m sorry for your loss. We too lost someone to this cancer and during the month of October too (awareness month), making it even harder.

  180. Carolyn Daley says

    I am sorry for your loss, but I am glad your grandmother had a long life and that you still keep her close to your heart.

  181. Nicole Fall says

    Thanks for holding such a great sweep! My Grandmother died from cancer just before I was born, so every October we go PINK!!

  182. Chelsey says

    I’m so sorry for the loss of your Grandmother. I think it’s wonderful that you raise awareness in her memory :)

  183. Rebecca Peters says

    I personally don’t know anyone with breast cancer but if affects all of us women.. One day I may know some one with it or have to go thru it.. we all have to check ourselves and go in for mamograms.. so it does affect us all.

  184. Jen Harriman says

    I do all I can to support breast cancer awareness & research. I buy pink as often as possible and support fund raisers when I can

  185. cathy miller / rewcath says

    I am a 10 year survivor of Breast Cancer, I spread awarness where ever I can when ever i can by talking to folks about surviving cancer nupa123atgmaildotcom

  186. Deborah Rosen says

    I’d like to offer my prayers, good vibes, positive thoughts, total support and utmost respect to the women and men who are fighting this terrible disease. My Mom beat breast cancer and you can, too!

  187. Jamie Anderson says

    Hi there :) I just wanted to say that I think it’s wonderful that you are taking part in such a wonderful cause. This giveaway rocks, seriously. Raising awareness, and giving away an Amazon card…it doesn’t get any better. Unless of course, we found a cure. But until then, I will continue to take part in the Susan G Komen “race for the cure” each year in Chicago. I do this with my best friend, her mother, her aunt, and their close friends/family/neighbors (whoever wants to join us each year- it usually gets bigger lol). My bff’s aunt has survived two bouts of breast cancer, and seeing it first hand- not only how it affected her aunt…but their entire family was really something else. It opened my eyes to this disease, and how real it is. I’m glad to get to take part in something like this each year, and I look forward to it. It’s become a tradition for us, and I think it brings us just a little bit closer everytime we go ;) Anyhow, thanks for holding such a great giveaway. Good luck everyone!

    My daughter and I just participated in the American Cancer Society’s Making Strides Breast Cancer Walk this past weekend. We walked on a team in honor of my cousin – she’s been undergoing breast cancer treatment this past year and is now cancer free!

  189. Shirley Hicks says

    I personally dont know an;yone who has been affected by breast cancer…i buy products that donated to breast cancer research..like yoplait yogurt…

    I like to support through donations and buying pink products. Thank you so much for hosting the giveaway and spreading awareness! :)

    The one year anniversary of Daddy passing to colon cancer is this Saturday so finding a cure is close to my heart. We’re marking the day by running/walking in the Undy 5000-Dallas to help raise awareness and money for a cure in his honor and memory.

  192. Ericka says

    I have not been personally affect by breast cancer but I hold it close to my heart. Another cause I hold close to my heart is PDE (Pug Don Encephalitis) research. Our beloved pet/family memeber just passed from it
    ericka082 at gmail dot com

  193. MelissaO says

    Another cause that’s close to my heart is gang intervention and providing jobs and skills trainings for urban youth.

  194. Theresa Mahoney says

    Sorry for the loss of your grandmother. I lost my grandmother to breast cancer also. Unfortunately for me, I never got to meet her. I feel such a loss because of that. I hear from my cousins what a lovely lady she was and how she spoiled her grandkids rotten. Would have loved to have the chance to see that for myself. Now I make sure to discuss with the other ladies in our family the awareness of breast cancer because of grandma. We all check up on each other to make sure we are getting our regular screenings done.

  195. Michelle Spayde says

    I love that breast cancer awareness keeps growing. So many woman are now getting checked, when they may not have in the past. I lost a friend to breast cancer because she put off treatment due to the cost. Is that sad, or what?

  196. Rhonda Struthers says

    Cancer is prevelent in our family. I have had three aunts diagnosed with breast cancer and numerous others with other types of cancer

    Thanks for hosting this great giveaway….my mom and aunt both survived breast cancer so my family always does a lot of cancer awareness and fundraising

  198. Jodi Kershuk says

    Recently, a good friend of mine was diagnosed with breast cancer. Unfortunately, it went undetected far too long and she had a Mastectomy. Please get a mammogram and do monthly at home checks.

  199. Toni Marie Caravello says

    I am saddened to know that awareness for breast cancer is not already worldwide – check them monthly girls! Keep your tatas healthy and keep them!

    I’m passionate about everything I believe in – no halfway or shades of gray for me. I devote most of my energy to animals because they can’t speak for themselves.

  202. Tiffany Hoyt says

    I had a teacher in 1st grade that died from breast cancer, it was the first time that I had ever heard of cancer and I was so sad seeing her still coming to school and volunteering at the library even after she lost her hair.

    Thanks for the giveaway…we participated in our local Race For The Cure earlier this month, in support of BC research !

  204. Erica G says

    Thanks for the giveaway! I think breast cancer awareness is important for everyone, not just women. I love companies that support the cause by giving up some of their profits!

  205. Elizabeth Tichenor says

    My mom was just diagnosed with stage 3 on it’s way to 4 a few weeks ago. Breast Cancer Awareness month has hit me like a ton of bricks. I will be donating my hair to an organization who supplies wigs to chemo patients.

  206. Bridget Heiple Reich says

    My aunt died from breast cancer years ago. I’m really glad that there is more awareness and research being done now. Thanks for the giveaway!!

  207. Sand says

    I have had many family members and close friends who have battled breast cancer. Some have unfortunately lost that battle.

  208. Michelle Hayden says

    Thanks for the giveaway! I have an aunt who is battling lung cancer and her strength and positive attitude are truly inspiring!

  209. spirit_kim says

    I think the t-shirts that are all so cute remind everyone about the cause. We should all be getting checked I think the idea that they now don’t recommend as many mammograms was a step backwards.
    gabe411 at hotmail dot com

  210. Jenifer R says

    Cancer awareness is so important. I have not been touched in my life by breast cancer but unfortunately I have had to deal with other cancers in my family. It is a disease that we need to continue to work against. Thank you for your help. reejen at comcast dot net
