Last month was breast cancer awareness month. This is something that has a personal meaning for me. Last year my boyfriend’s mother, Fiona, was diagnosed with breast cancer.
At the beginning of October I wanted to send something to Fiona to let her know we were thinking about her. This is when I came across Lokai bracelets.
Lokai bracelets have a black bead and a white bead. Each point represents the highest point on Earth, Mount Everest, and the lowest point, the Dead Sea. The point of these beads are to keep you balanced.
For the month of October Lokai had limited edition breast cancer awareness bracelets for sale, with a portion of the proceeds going to breast cancer research. Upon learning about this brand I decided to order a bracelet and send it to England, as a surprise to Fiona. I thought the bracelets were such a great idea, I ordered one for myself as well.
According to the Canadian Cancer Society, breast cancer is a disease that effects 1 in 9 women. This type of cancer is the most common cancer in Canadian women. It is important that we keep funding research to find a cure.
