October is a month where men and women push for awareness for breast cancer but to those that struggle with breast cancer, it’s an every day fight.

The Madison College TruStyle Salon is having a promotion with half the proceeds going to Breast Cancer Recovery. For $6 you can show of your sparkling pink eyelids in shades of pink and purple, or eyes and lips for $10.

The challenge on campus is to show support for the fighters and admire the survivors with breast cancer.

In 2013, an estimated 232,340 new cases of invasive breast cancer will be diagnosed among women, and approximately 39,620 women are expected to die from breast cancer this year. The only other cancer that accounts for more cancer deaths in women is lung cancer, according to the American Cancer Society.

A common misconception among youth is that breast cancer can’t happen to them. In reality, half of women are diagnosed before the age of 60.
