FASH-LANTHROPHY: Top Style Picks For Breast Cancer Awareness Month 2012

by Naima Turner - Fleming

**This post is dedicated to the Breast Cancer survivors in my family: Aunt Annette and Cousin Roxanne.

You are what you wear, and with it being Breast Cancer Awareness month, wearing the following shows your awareness, support and fab style.

  • Handbag designer Patricia Nash, has teamed up with celebs and loyal customers of hers, to support Breast Cancer Awareness Month. One of her loyal customers, Terri Ferry of Tennessee had been dealing with breast cancer and wanted to maintain her style while undergoing treatment. It was then, that the two designed a handbag that would be ideal for other women going through chemotherapy or a mastectomy. The bag was created   with a detachable pouch to hold her ID, insurance card, and list of medications which she can easily remove when moving into her hospital room and made to be very light weight with thin straps which can be converted and worn many ways for comfort following surgery – cross-body, wristlet, shoulder, and more.

Celebs including January Jones, breast cancer survivor Giuliana Rancic, Elizabeth Hurley, Liv Tyler and more are joining Patricia Nash by auctioning off a signed handbag.  Each is filled with on-the-go must-haves – from lip gloss to sunglasses to their favorite book with 100% of proceeds going to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation.
