Martha Stewart and Ford celebrate Breast Cancer Awareness Month!

pink-ribbon-imageOctober is Breast Cancer Awareness Month so you tend to see pink everywhere you look. Pink ribbons on blogs and avatars. People are “racing for a cure” and even Sports Illustrated ‘went pink’ this month!

Well, if you tune in to “The Martha Stewart Show” Friday, October 16th, you’ll be seeing a lot more pink!!!

Tomorrow the Queen of Homemaking will be joined by a very special audience full of Breast Cancer survivors and supporters as she devotes the entire show to Breast Cancer Awareness!

Ford’s Warriors in Pink is teaming up with Martha to share with us how to reduce the risk of Breast Cancer (with special guest Dr. Dara Richardson-Heron), along with some delicious cancer-fighting recipes. They will also be unveiling a new limited-edition breast cancer stamp set featuring Ford’s “Symbols of a Warrior”!!!

You can watch a preview of tomorrow’s show HERE. You’ll notice in the preview that the entire audience is wearing pink, of course, but you may not have noticed the amazing scarf they are all wearing. The woven scarf, seen below on Martha, is part of the limited edition Warriors in Pink apparel and accessories created by Ford. You can purchase items like this scarf at FordCares.com where all net proceeds are donated to the Susan G. Komen fund.

    I am so glad that October is Breast Cancer awareness month. I lost my aunt to breast cancer and it seems that you can’t really understand what Cancer truly is what the destruction that it causes until you experience it first hand. I am so glad that getting information out there about breast cancer and the facts and myths is saving lives. Please enter me in the contest. I know right away that I would give the scarf to my mother. We try to support breast cancer awareness in any way that we can, therefore we have so much merchandise with the logo on it. Thanks for the giveaway.

    It is amazing to see how many people become “pink” in the month of October. Cancer is a disease that deserves not only attention for the month of October, but every day, of every month, of every year, until a cure is found! To all of those fighting, hang in there, to all of those surviving, keep smiling, to all of those supporting, god bless you, everyone needs someone by their side, especially through such a horrendous time.

  4. Lindsay says

    Please enter me in the contest. I love creating gift baskets and would love to see this one…plus the scarf is super cute!!!!

    Giving away these gifts to a cancer serviver a wonderful thing!! I too had cancer twice in my life but what I regret most and maybe feel quilty about, althought I know it wasn’t my fault, is that my precious daughter had to go throught her own breast cancer battle; not once, but twice!! I worry more about her and her family more than I did when I myself went throught my own personal cancer battle. I’me happy for whoemever wins these wonderful gifts. It’s so good to see someone that would benefit from these!! Right On!!

  7. says

    Wow what a great giveaway! My mom is battling BC for the 3rd time. I would love to share this warrior basket with her. She is a true warrior and my inspiration.

  8. says

    The scarf is lovely and this is a great giveaway. If I won I’d have to share the contents of the basket with the other women in my family – my mother-in-law lost her battle with breast cancer a few years ago and those of us who were left behind do our best to support research in hopes of finding a cure.

  9. Jen says

    What a great giveaway. I lost a cousin to breastcancer when she was only 32. I’d love to share this with her family.

  10. Barbara S. says

    It is refreshing to see how many groups of people help to support breast cancer awareness. Many of my closest relatives have survived breast cancer so it is especially near and dear to my heart.

  23. Deborah R says

    I watched my Mom battle breast cancer over 20 years ago, so it’s nice to see corporations and individuals stepping up to support finding a cure. Mom beat cancer, and together, every woman (and man!) can, too. asthenight at gmail dot com

  24. Janice J says

    What a nice giveaway for a wonderful cause!
    I watched my mother fight cancer, and for 18
    years she won, finally the cancer won, so sad.

  25. says

    I’ve been so impressed at how many campaigns I’ve seen to raise awareness this month! It’s refreshing to see people, both locally and online educating others about breast cancer!

  26. Estelle says

    I love that so many celebrities and companies are working together to get the word out about supporting such a great cause!

  27. says

    I’m encouraged to see so much celebrity support for breast cancer awareness. My stepmother is a breast cancer survivor; early detection was key in conquering the disease.

  28. Wendy Wallach says

    The importance of education regarding breast cancer can never be minimalized. This sort of item helps greatly in spreading the word and heightening awareness!

Thankyou for this giveaway in recognition of this very important cause.

    I am a fifteen year cancer survivor. But I have a couple of friends that are just beginning that journey. And I would use this basket to give them hope.
    THank you so much for the chance to win.

  37. Millie Brackett says

    I think that this is a great way to show women that you are working for a cure.

    I had a Mother who died of colon cancer, and a sister who had colon cancer, but is because of early finding is now cancer free, Praise the Lord, and I have another sister who had breast cancer and had to have both breast removed, so I am living and always trying to find ways to help prevent cancer.

    I would love to win this beautiful package so that I could share it with my sisters.

    Thank You for helping in the battle to prevent this terrible disease.

    Millie

  38. Kristy says

    This is a great prize to bring awareness to breast cancer and the importance of getting early screening… good luck to all

  39. says

    It is so wonderful seeing so many hopping on the bandwagon to find a cure to something we all are connected to in one way or another- I don’t know anyone who hasn’t known someone fighting the brave fight.
    Thanks for the opportunity to share such a great gift basket with someone special.

  40. Kristyn Martin says

    I would love to win this for my best friend’s mother who has breast cancer. Thanks so much for the chance!

  45. Elaina says

    My mom is breast cancer survivor and my hero. I would love to win this to give it to her. She went thru a lot with her fight with breast cancer because my brother was fighting to win his battle with luekemia at 16. I am happy to report that they are both doing wonderfully now.

  46. says

    In Martha Stewart Magazine and Food it says that new Ford Taurus will be given away by December of 2009–just the one on her show. I would love to enter my name. Just had a total mastectomy and must say, it is the hardest thing I have ever gone through. Chemo is next, and I am not looking forward to it.

    Thanks so much—-Pat Reeder/ Denver

  47. Marjorie Whitney says

    I’m so glad that cancer and breast cancer in particular are no longer considered “hidden” diseases. I love seeing how the rates of death from breast cancer have gone down in recent years.

  48. Cheribtx says

    I would love to win this basket, me and my mother are both warriors and it is so great to see a giveaway like this. Blessings Always! Live simply. Love generously. Care deeply. Speak kindly. Leave the rest to God.
