October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month and although most of us are reminded of the severity of the disease on a daily basis, this annual campaign is a good reminder of how important early detection of cancer really is. It also gives us the opportunity to help others who are dealing with the disease while also balancing other difficult tasks that life throws at us all every single day. This year alone there will be an estimated 1,658,370 new cancer cases diagnosed in the United States alone. With those high numbers it is easy to say that we all are either dealing with cancer in our own families or know others who are currently fighting it.
Throughout the years there have been so many wonderful organizations that have been developed to help bring awareness and raise money to help those in need. Community Cares is a very special local non-profit organization . They help patients undergoing chemo and radiation treatments by offering everyday services like housekeeping, laundry services, food shopping and transportation for the patient and their family during that critical time in their care. By partnering with local businesses, Community Cares makes life easier for woman who are currently fighting cancer as well as other illnesses. Life can be stressful for anyone, especially a mother who is not only receiving cancer treatments but also has to worry about things like making sure her family is fed and the house is kept clean. Community Cares helps families by providing these services, relieving them of these worries so that she can focus on getting better.
This month General Knot & Co. is just one of the many businesses that is helping to raise money for these much needed services. We will be featuring our very own “Pink Collection” consisting of Neckties, bow tie and pocket square. 100% of the profits made on these products will be donated to this amazing organization.
By supporting local charities, we can each make a difference in our communities and help those individuals that need so many different levels of care.
