Every October, individuals across the world join hands in support of those battling breast cancer. The National Breast Cancer Foundation’s mission is to help “those affected by breast cancer through early detection, education and support services,” and we want to join the fight!

To honor people at all different stages of the breast cancer journey, we’ve collected our 10 favorite spaces adorned with pops of pink! We hope to inspire strength and comfort this Pinktober, so we encourage you to visit the National Breast Cancer Foundation’s website to give, volunteer, share educational content, and learn about the symptoms.
