We love the month of October because it celebrates and raises awareness for so many causes that are very near and dear to our hearts – breast cancer, Down syndrome, and ADHD. Last week, we discussed our huge Breast Cancer Campaign. So, this week, we’d like to honor Down syndrome and ADHD awareness with some information and a few small ways we can all make a difference.
There are more than 400,000 in the United States alone living with the genetic condition, Down syndrome. The National Down Syndrome Society summarizes this awareness month the best, “During the month of October, we celebrate people with Down syndrome and make people aware of our abilities and accomplishments. It’s not about celebrating disabilities, it’s about celebrating abilities.”
Ways to Make a Difference –
Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD)
Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder, better known as ADHD is a result of an imbalance of chemical messengers, or neurotransmitters, within the brain. Its primary symptoms are inattention, impulsiveness, and, sometimes, hyperactivity. CHADD, The National Resource on ADHD aims to use this month to “help improve the lives of the 17 million children and adults in the United State living with ADHD, their family members, teachers, and professionals working with them.”

October is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month, which aims to spread awareness of this disease and also to work towards finding a cure. Breast Cancer touches the lives of many people across the globe every year. According to the American Cancer Society, there are approximately 255,180 new cases of breast cancer in the U.S. alone in 2017.
There are so ways to support the efforts being made to research a cause, reduce the rate of occurrence, and ideally, find a cure for Breast Cancer. This year, we have a new way for you to support the cause: Wear your support.
