Uniform Advantage partners with Living Beyond Breast CancerThis Fall, we are excited to partner with Living Beyond Breast Cancer (LBBC) and donate proceeds from 2 of our breast cancer cause awareness scrubs, Celebrate Pink Black and Wild and Pink Black prints. We will be joining our sister brand, ChefUniforms.com in making a donation, over $5,000 in total towards the fight against breast cancer!

LBBC’s mission is to connect people with trusted breast cancer information and be a community of support because no one should have to go through any stage of breast cancer alone. They help anyone diagnosed with breast cancer: from being newly diagnosed, in treatment, living with advanced breast cancer or in recovery and even loved ones of those impacted by this disease. They offer a holistic approach to getting people informed and taken care of.

People are always ready to help and go all out in October. They wear pink, not only because it is a hot color but it looks good on everyone, female and males! But after reading one of LBBC’s blogs by one of their bloggers, Beth Caldwell speaking about October 13th being Metastatic Breast Cancer Awareness Day, we wanted to help educate and help people to donate more to this type of cancer.

She was passionate and spoke of what someone who is diagnosed with this type of cancer goes through.

Did you know it is vastly underfunded?

Sometimes you take it for granted that through the excitement from all the fundraising efforts in finding a cure for women and men diagnosed with breast cancer, that you don’t think that this is a daily reminder of their personal struggle with this disease. It is a rough month for thousands of people and their families. According to Metastatic Breast Cancer Network, Metastatic Breast Cancer is stage IV and represents 6-10% of new breast cancer cases and is deadly! There is no cure! The number of people living with this type of cancer in the US is estimated to be over 155,000 and the average survival time is 3 years. Unfortunately, funding dollars towards metastatic research is less than 5%.

With stats like that, let’s help spread the word about this brutal cancer and donate more dollars to help people affected by it.

Read Beth Caldwell’s personal experience titled Pink to Black on LBBC’s Blog. It was real and heartfelt.

Are you in an adventurous mood to try all? Or which trend do you like the most and why?

Did you get a chance to see Miss America on Sunday??

Congratulations to Miss Georgia from the Peaches State!

Miss Colorado, Kelley Johnson did her profession proud on Sunday night when she spoke about what nursing represents, instead of doing the usual song and dance repertoires done by contestants. She portrayed herself very humbly and wore her purple scrubs and stethoscope to emphasize the role nurses play in the healthcare profession. It was pretty awesome to see her illustrate exactly what nursing is all about in the example she gave about one of her Alzheimer patients, Joe. What meant the most to him was the love she gave him through meaningful conversations and holding his hand when he needed it the most, and just providing a listening ear. She truly showed that she is more than just a nurse! Check her out in this YouTube video.

We at Uniform Advantage feel the same way because nursing is all about loving and caring for patients, and what nurses dispense from their hearts is irreplaceable. We first saw this popular reference from Nurse Kateri Allard when she wrote a fantastic article titled “Don’t Call Me Just a Nurse.” We had to include it in our Super Nurses infographic campaign last year. Check it out!

One of the memes we posted celebrating our Nurses during Nurses Week this year truly emulates Miss Colorado’s sentiments (see first meme)! Check out the rest of them below. We created several memes about the roles nurses play and how appreciative we are of their service.

Nurses are Angels. Happy Nurses Week! UA 2015 Nurse Meme - Nurses dispense comfortUA 2015 Nurse Meme - RN stands for Rockstar Nurse UA 2015 Nurse Meme - Cute enough to stop your heart UA 2015 Nurse Meme - A Nurse is an Angel

Nurses, you rock! Go Miss Colorado!
