October was celebrated as Breast Cancer Awareness Month. To support the cause and research, a number of fashion and beauty brands have come up with products that are designed to create public awareness. The products are designed and created in the color pink, which has become synonymous with this type of cancer. Much of the proceeds from the products sold will go to supporting breast cancer research.
