October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month!
I own an ezine called Mobile Cuisine Magazine which covers the food truck industry. Today's post is a simple list truck owners can use to show their support.

According to CDC figures, over 200,000 women will be diagnosed with breast cancer and about 40,000 will die from this disease this year. Breast cancer is the second most common cancer in women, after non-melanoma skin cancer. Although progress has been made over the years and mortality is decreasing, the goal of Breast Cancer Awareness Month is to promote efforts toward more research and efforts to get women screened and treated earlier, particularly lower income women.

2010 marks the 25th anniversary of Breast Cancer Awareness Month. We at Mobile Cuisine Magazine have created a list of things you as a mobile vendor can do to help support this noble cause. Do your part and hop on the fundraising bandwagon to help in the fight.

Find the list here - http://mobilecuisine.wordpress.com/2010/10/06/october-i...
