October ushers in Breast Cancer Awareness Month and in 2016 and 2017 The Suburban Monk partnered with Susan G. Komen of Greater NYC to raise money and awareness for a cause that sits so near to my heart.

When I was 23 years old, my mother discovered a lump on her breast that would take her life a year later. As I write this, 36 years later, I can recall the exact moment she told me. It’s a memory which still causes my heart to ache, the tears to well, and my throat to tighten. She and I were tied at the hip.

But life goes on, and I now get to raise money and give back through Syd and my company, The Suburban Monk. How lucky am I?! Therefore, during the month of October, The Suburban Monk will be donating 20% of sales of the Lucky Pink Syd, Rockin’ Raspberry Syd (or any little Syd for that matter!!) to Susan G. Komen.

Learn more about how The Suburban Monk is giving back.

Do you have a story about Syd gives back in your life?

Please share yours. I could discuss these things all day.
