Fighting Breast Cancer One Blog Post at a Time
You might call her a Southern Belle.
You might call her a fantastic chef.
She is a Mommy, a friend and a fighter. I call her an inspiration.
Those who inspire most deeply tend to be the people who lead by example. Rachel from A Southern Fairy Tale does just that. She is dedicating her blog to fighting breast cancer for the entire month of October. As is typical of Rachel's sweet nature and wit, she is calling it Blogging for Boobs.
Last year she did a huge giveaway to drive traffic to her site to increase awareness and raise money through Ad revenue. This year, she is stepping up her committment. She is donating her entire site to the cause. Come October, her blog will turn pink and she will have guest posters sharing their stories, their tributes and information. Items have already been donated so she can do weekly giveaways - and she has set up a special page called, what else - Blogging for Boobs where people can donate directly to the Susan G Komen foundation.
Why is Rachel doing this? Not because she has to. But because she knows you and I have likely been touched, in some way, by this disease - and she knows a cure is in our future - if only we can continue to fight, spread awareness and raise money.
For Rachel, it is her mother-in-law and at least three friends who's moms have been affected. These women serve as a reminder of the pervasiveness of this disease. And it is for them that Rachel is Blogging for Boobs.
