Breast Cancer Awareness October

Breast Cancer Awareness October

October is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month.  Pink is everywhere this month.  Whether is the NFL, college football or local races, someone is wearing pink!  Last week, I had the pleasure of participating at my friend’s Kat healthy walk at the business offices of Progressive Insurance in Brandon.

She asked if we could set up a table to promote healthy eating at her event.  Jordan Parke and I had a great time meeting some awesome people and enjoying the great Florida weather!  Yes, it was breezy out there.


We brought some granola for the walkers to snack on as well as some pumpkin butter and coconut butter.  Everyone was very impressed with the granola ingredients and nutritional facts.  Although, I think they secretly wished I had brought samples of our strawberry cookies.  :)  Maybe next time.

Last Sunday, I gathered up the courage to run my first 15k.  While the event did not raise funds for breast cancer, it was aptly named Pretty in Pink to raise awareness.

Breast cancer is one of the most “preventable” forms of cancer because of all of the early detection programs available.  If you need help finding a low cost screening center, follow this link.

Hi! I'm Xiomara. My love for strawberries started at a young age. As a child growing up in Puerto Rico, eating strawberries was a special treat. Fast forward to 2007, we packed our home and moved to Plant City, the winter strawberry capital of the world.
