Unless you're new here, you know that it's Down Syndrome Awareness Month.

You may already know that it's National Breast Cancer Awareness Month as well.

Both hold a special place in my heart. My mother had breast cancer and passed away in January of 1995 and Playette was diagnosed with Ds in June of 2007.

Someone asked me why they share the month. Honestly, I really don't know why both fall in October, but what I do know is that there's enough room (on my wrist, even) for both issues to be brought to light.

I have two more Ds Awareness bracelets that I received at the Buddy Walk. If you'd like one, please comment and I'll send one to you.

I was admiring your bling - but looks like the extras are spoken for :)

That's okay - my kids would fight over it if I only had one!
