A mermaid in honor of National Breast Cancer Awareness Month

In October, we pay tribute to National Breast Cancer Awareness Month, which made me think about a few things while I was creating this mermaid.

1. We must check ourselves.

It’s so important to know how to do this, not to fear it. It’s super easy and can help us stay proactive.

2. Take the time to admire and listen to women who have survived.


It’s important to acknowledge their stories, and to let them know they have our support.

3. Find ways we can help.

It can be something as simple as telling your best friend that she should check herself or donating to the National Breast Cancer Foundation.

Hope all you strong mermaids swim by next week!
