This is where October comes in.

October is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month, which is obvious as many buildings, household products and even football players are draped in pink. National attention to breast cancer detection and treatment is still an important cause, and there are many ways to participate beyond simply wearing pink (but that helps too).
