Latest buy: Bracelet for Breastcancer

In Denmark we have a organization that fights cancer (with research and awareness) called "Kræften Bekæmpelse". A couple of times each year they do campaignes to raise money. Their most famous one is the one they call "Støt Brysterne" which roughly means "Support the boobs". As you may have guessed it's for breast cancer which 1 out of 9 women get in Denmark. That's way too many!! My grandmother (on my dads side) had breast cancer many years ago. She survived, but she lost one of her breasts in the struggle. I had to admit that I'm TIRREFIED of cancer - it's such a horrible and evil thing so when ever I get the chance I like to support Kræftens Bekæmpelse. This time they made these bracelets (available in black, baby pink and purple) and they're only 25 kr (£3 /$5)! So I just bought it yesterday and I actually like the look of it too. I'm thinking of using it with a lot of other thin bracelets.

----------------------

De fleste af jer kender nok godt Kræftens Bekæmpelse og de fleste af jer har nok også lagt mærke til deres "Støt Brysterne" kampagner. Jeg synes det er meget vildt at tænke på, at 1 ud af 9 kvinder i Danmark får brystkræft i løbet af deres liv. Prøv lige at tæl jeres veninder og kvinder i jeres familie og så tænk på at i faktisk kommer til, at kende flere der får den uhyggelige sygdom! Min farmor havde brystkræft for mange år siden - hun overlevede, men mistede et bryst i kampen. Jeg må virkelig indrømme, at jeg er SÅ bange for kræft. Derfor støtter jeg Kræftens Bekæmpelse hver gang jeg får muligheden for det - og det har jeg hermed også gjort igår, da jeg købte dette armbånd. Armbåndet koster 25 kr og kan fås i sort, lyserød og lilla. Jeg har købt mit i Netto, men jeg ved at der er mange supermarkeder der kører kampagnen pt (vist også Matas?). Ellers kan de købes her på Kræftens Bekæmpelses webshop - de sælger dog kun 3-pakker med alle 3 farver i. Men så kan man jo enten støtte med lidt mere eller gå sammen med nogle veninder.
