As an Ambassador for Breast Cancer Charity Future Dreams, Breast Cancer Awareness Month is very important to Melissa and as 1 in 8 women will be diagnosed with breast cancer in their lifetime it's important to remember that your boobies are as important as your bikinis!
This annual campaign to increase awareness of the disease is an amazing opportunity for women to discuss any concerns and scares more openly.
Most people are aware of breast cancer, yet with such hectic lives it's so easy to let regular check-ups slip your mind and many ladies forget to take the steps to have a plan to detect the disease in its early stages - which is why bringing this to the forefront of our minds is SO important.
To help promote this wonderful cause we have decided to run a social media competition and are giving away a classic Key West Bikini in Flamingo Pink. Launching today, this will run for three weeks and the winner will be announced on the 23rd of October, the official #WearItPink day. This fundraising event encourages everyone to wear something pink for the day and donate what money they can to help fund more ground-breaking breast cancer research.
Supporting Breast Cancer charities and awareness is not something that's new to us here at Melissa Odabash. Thanks to our hugely successful collaboration with the Future Dreams Charity, which led to the creation of Melissa's debut mastectomy line earlier this year, we were lucky enough to meet, work with and be inspired by an amazing group of women who have shown that even if you miss the early signs of this disease, you can still catch it before it's too late and beat it!
