October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month

We love October because we love the fall weather and all that comes along with it. But October is more important than that! October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, and we at Coppin’s Gifts figured it would be a good idea to pass along a bit of information.

Breast cancer is caused by malignant cells in the breast tissue. And breast cancer doesn’t discriminate. It affects people of all ages, races, and it even affects some men. American women actually get breast cancer more than almost any other cancer (it’s only surpassed by some forms of skin cancer). It’s second only to lung cancer as a cause of cancer death in women. So we urge each and every one of you to know how to properly perform a monthly breast self-exam. After all, early detection is the best medicine out there.

If you want to support the cause, we have some Pink Ribbon DaVinci Beads for you to choose from. It’s a simple way to let a survivor know that you’re thinking about them. It’s also a great way for you to fashionably join the fight against breast cancer. These DaVinci Beads are the perfect gift for those special women in your life— whether it’s October or not.
