I am partnering with Dean’s Dairy during Breast Cancer Awareness Month to share their goal of generating resources for the fight against breast cancer here in Kentucky and Indiana.

Bubbles asked me the other day why she was seeing so much more pink around town.  Pink is one of her two favorite colors, so she definitely noticed the uptick in it’s usage.

During Breast Cancer Awareness Month, purchase Dean's Dairy's DairyPure Milk and they will make a donation for each gallon purchased

Since she’s only five I had a more vague conversation about Breast Cancer Awareness Month than I will when she’s a little older.  I told her that people are wearing and using pink to remind others about a disease that many people have.

Breast Cancer Awareness Month

As a woman breast cancer is something that I started to be aware of from a very young age.  You don’t have to be scared, but you have to be informed and vigilant.  As a Resident Advisor in college I remember helping to hand out the shower hang tags to remind residents to do self-checks.

A few years ago breast cancer hit pretty close to home when my Mom’s cousin was diagnosed.  She had a great support circle of friends and family to help cheer her on and thankfully she is now in remission.  It was definitely hard to watch her and her kids go through it though especially since she had lost her husband to cancer when the kids were very young.

Dean’s Dairy & the American Cancer Society

According to Kendall Anderson, the senior director of corporate relations at the American Cancer Society, breast cancer is the second-leading cause of death for women in Kentucky.  So as part of the American Cancer Society’s 19th Annual “Making Strides Against Breast Cancer”, Dean’s Dairy is partnering to bring awareness and generate resources for the fight against breast cancer right here in Kentucky and southern Indiana.

Look for specially-marked packages of Dean's DairyPure milk during Breast Cancer Awareness Month with the pink ribbon and ACS logo

For each gallon of specially marked Dean’s DairyPure white milk sold in the Louisville area Dean’s Dairy will donate five cents to the American Cancer Society.  This pledge kicked off back on September 26th and will run through the end of October.  Look for the bottles with a pink ribbon and the ACS logo in most major retail outlets in the area.

I wasn’t familiar with Dean’s Dairy until I moved here but their DairyPure milk was my husband’s milk of choice.  The milk is tested for antibiotics, contain no artificial growth hormones, and comes cold-shipped from trusted local dairies.

Will you buy a gallon of Dean’s DairyPure milk to support Breast Cancer Awareness Month?
