Johari Abdul-Zahir and Shishir Tallada discuss breast cancer awareness.

While October can be quite festive and very fun for many, October can also remind people of the difficult battles either them or their loved ones have fought. Many people take all their pink clothes out of their closets, take a few extra dollars out of their wallets to give to charity and are a bit more mindful of the experiences others have gone through.
