I am a huge supporter of breast cancer research and awareness groups. Like many others out there, my family has been touched by this cancer. In the summer of 2009 we lost my mother in law to breast cancer, she left behind 9 kids and quite a few grand babies. That same year a dear friend of mines mom won her battle against breast cancer. Her mother was like a second mother growing up for me so the year of 2009 was a bitter sweat one. We all know that early detection is the best way to beat breast cancer, but for those like my mother in law, the only way to beat it would have to be a cure. There is so much research out there and everyday they are continuing with this research so that one day we can beat this horrible cancer and find a cure.

Find hope. Be inspired. Know you are not alone. Join the 2011 Pink Together campaign now in its fifth year of celebrating hope by visiting PinkTogether.com to connect with a unique online community of people who have been touched by breast cancer and share a passion for the cause. Individually we are strong, but together we are stronger. Visit PinkTogether.com to share your personal story and messages of hope and read about others’ personal journeys. To encourage personal connections, General Mills will donate $1 to the Komen organization for each Message of Hope that is sent to someone who has shared their story on PinkTogether.com (up to $25,000) during October. This is in addition to a $2 million donation General Mills is making to the Komen organization. This year, for the first time in its five-year history, at PinkTogether.com consumers can choose how $1 million of this donation will be shared between two important Komen programs: the Treatment and Assistance Program, which assists women in securing care they otherwise may not be able to afford, and Prevention Research, which helps unlock the keys to preventing breast cancer. Visit PinkTogether.com from September 19, 2011 through April 14, 2012 to make your choice. Results will be announced on Mother’s Day 2012 – Sunday, May 13. Meet the 2011 Pink Together Survivor Ambassadors, and hear their amazing stories of courage and survival on PinkTogether.com and the Pink Together YouTube Channel. General Mills will also be turning the packaging of participating products pink in recognition of National Breast Cancer Awareness Month this October. To help celebrate I was sent a prize pack like the one pictured below and I will be giving the same away to one of my amazing readers!!
