Over the course of authoring this blog for over seven years, I have had the great pleasure to form online relationships as well as endorse products I use and believe in. Quite some time ago, I did extensive testing of the Tattler reusable canning lids and wrote a review on them. I've been using Tattler lids for a little over three years now. They quickly became and remain my preferred canning lid to use wherever possible. I should clarify the 'possible' which really means I don't like using them on home canned foods that will be gifted as they are meant to be kept and reused multiple times. Earlier this month, I received an email from Brad Steig, President of S&S Innovations, Corp. manufacturer of Tattler Reusable Canning Lids asking me if I would be interested in promoting their limited edition pink reusable canning lids in support of breast cancer awareness month with 35% of proceeds from their sale being donated to the Munson Medical Center Women's Cancer Fund in Traverse
City, Michigan. Through this program, 100% of donated funds go directly
toward assisting women in meeting the financial burdens associated with
battling cancer. This request was one I could not turn down!
Nearly 1.5 million world wide were diagnosed with breast cancer in 2010. While this statistic includes both male and female diagnosed with breast cancer, the disease remains the most common female cancer world wide. North America along with the UK and Australia/New Zealand have the highest incidence rates world wide, making these countries a priority for breast cancer awareness. October is breast cancer awareness month. Breast cancer affects everyone. Someone you know is now battling this disease or have lost their life to it. Like most, we too have been affected by breast cancer which is rather prevalent on my husband's side. In 2001 we welcomed our beautiful daughter-in-law into our family and hearts. Little did we know that we would see her go through the devastating pain of losing a sister from breast cancer who left behind a husband and two very young children.
