Honor #NoBraDay By Supporting Breast Cancer Awareness & These Celebrities Who’ve Battled The Disease

breast cancer awareness month celebrity fighters

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month!

However, instead of just breaking out your favorite pink sweater — perhaps think about ditching your bra for the cause.

In fact, October 13 is officially #NoBraDay where women are encouraged to leave their bras at home in order promote awareness on the unfortunate disease, as well as to help raise money for research. LOVES it!

It’s said the origin of the “holiday” came from the fact that many women are unable to go braless after surviving breast cancer since the undergarments are needed to hold up their prosthesis following surgery. Wow, the more you know!

According to recent studies, around 12.3% of women will be diagnosed with breast cancer at some point during their lifetime. Even the most famous of celebrities have battled against the big BC.

Most recently, Shannen Doherty and Sandra Lee joined the long list of A-listers who’ve faced off against the sickness — including Giuliana Rancic, Sheryl Crow, and Kylie Minogue. Whoa.

Check out the full list (below).

I am a long way from where I was and a long way from where I need to be, but at this point I understand that right now I just need to complete this unexpected phase of a tough journey.”

As for Sandra’s longtime love, New York Governor Andrew Cuomo, it’s said that he left a Billy Joel concert and rushed to be at his GF’s bedside. We can only imagine how scary that was for the politician.

Neither party has yet to comment on the incident.

Our thoughts are with Sandra and her loved ones during this time. Feel better soon, m’kay?!

Sandra Lee Speaks Out Against Critics

People be hatin’ on Sandra Lee, but she’s having none of it!

The host of Semi-Homemade and author of 23 cookbooks has been called an elitist and out of touch.

Responded Sandra:

“I think everyone needs to lighten up. Our job is to serve the overextended homemakers, our job is to make their life better.”

She also addressed the people who criticize her for not cooking from scratch:

“The food world is something I know, and something I know top to bottom. People think I just know how to open a box or can. For the food purist, that’s bad, and from homemakers, that’s applauded.”

We├óΓé¼Γäóre not sure where this criticism is coming from! Everyone has their own style of cooking — if you don├óΓé¼Γäót have anything nice to say about Sandra├óΓé¼Γäós style, go watch something else!
