    Since it's breast cancer awareness month. How do you support and help increase awareness?

    I don't know that this is tied to breast cancer awareness month, but I used to work for a breast surgeon who specialized in treating cancer (not a plastic surgeon). His biggest piece of advice? Get rid of plastic. Use glass water bottles, heat or freeze food in glass containers (plastic lids are fine as long as you remove them before putting them in the microwave). He said the estrogen mimicking chemicals released by plastic when stressed (so frozen or heated - room temperature is fine) - even BPA free plastic - has caused an increase in breast cancer. That's been the biggest change to my life and my most shared piece of advice.
