As most of us probably know, October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

And for most of us, this is a cause that hits very close to home. Did you know that there is a woman diagnosed with breast cancer every TWO minutes! That's astounding, isn't it? Is it any wonder that so many of us have been impacted in one way or another by this disease.

For me, I have had many women in my family diagnosed, none closer than my mom. I can tell you that as a daughter that is a terrifying phone call to receive, but thankfully due to a routine self exam, hers was caught early and I am very happy to say she is now cancer free. Still, it was definitely a very scary time and one that too many of us can relate to--- be it our moms, our grandmas, our aunts, our best friends or even ourselves.

Every 2 minutes. Something has to change!

Every year starting in October, Carpet One Floor & Home does their part to help with their collection of Pink Ribbon Welcome A Cure welcome mats, which support breast cancer research. For each $24.99 ($34.99 CDN) mat sold, 25 percent of the proceeds directly support the five-star rated Breast Cancer Research Fund. To date, the company has raised almost $1 million from mat sales.

What is the Breast Cancer Research Fund and Carpet One?



The Breast Cancer Research Foundation (BCRF) advances the world's most promising research to eradicate breast cancer in our lifetime. Founded by Evelyn H. Lauder in 1993, BCRF has raised more than $500 million to fuel discoveries in tumor biology, genetics, prevention, treatment, survivorship and metastasis. This year, we invested $45 million in the work of more than 200 researchers at leading medical institutions across six continents. By spending 91 cents of every dollar on research and public awareness, BCRF remains one of the nation's most fiscally responsible charities. We are the only breast cancer organization with an "A+" from CharityWatch, and have been awarded a 4-star rating from Charity Navigator 12 times since 2002. Join us at www.bcrfcure.org.

I have had the chance to receive these stunning mats for the last few years and I must say, they just keep getting better and better. The 2017 pink ribbon mat collection features 18 designs, (http://bit.ly/2vxB0Zu) including interior design experts Melissa Davis and Lisa Mende, who pull from their personal experience to create dramatic, impactful mats that fit any home decor. In addition, graphic design artist Justin Niederkorn, a senior designer for an international non-profit agency, tapped his artistic talent and love for the women in his life, to create a mat that graphically tells the important story of a breast exam. Mikayla Chandler, a Savannah College of Art & Design advertising and illustration sophomore, created a powerful image of lines that seem almost inter-connected, and resemble the shape of a breast, swoop of a cup and wisps of hair. The two graphic designers have created edgy and thought-provoking artwork that add to the fashionable and functional collection.



While I have loved the mats from previous years, I have to say this year's collection may just be the best yet. Absolutely every one of this is just as gorgeous as the next. I love them all, but none more than this super fun 'Hello Gorgeous' mat. Isn't it gorgeous!? I actually decided to use this in my kitchen so I could see it each and every day! That's really the great thing about these mats, they work well both indoors AND outdoors and hold up very well. The mats I have in years past STILL look great. They are made to last. Most importantly, they give that little bit of a reminder about the importance of breast cancer awareness and self exams. And if you ask me, that's a pretty important message...right?


Mats are available in participating Carpet One Floor& Home stores throughout the U.S. and Canada. Want more info or ready to support the cause with your purchase? You can shop these beautiful rugs here: http://www.carpetone.com/welcome-a-cure
