Frocktober : The Final Countdown

 

 

I’ve been Frocktobering my little heart out.  25 days down and only six days left to go.  I’m absolutely loving the experience of 31 dresses in 31 days (but I am looking forward to pants!).  Just quietly, I’m quite shocked at just how many dresses are actually in my wardrobe.  I think the Welshman has been a little surprised too.  This may be the only downside of Frocktober!

During Frocktober, I’ve been sharing the experience all over social media on Instagram, Facebook and Twitter.  So many selfies!  I’ve also been taking the opportunity to talk to people about Frocktober, the Ovarian Cancer Research Foundation and just how important this cause is.

People are truly shocked that there is no early detection screening test for ovarian cancer, yet it is the seventh most common cause of cancer death for women.  The five year survival rate for breast cancer is 88%.  For ovarian cancer, it’s only about 40%.

Social media is awash with Frocktober  – and I love it!  Let’s get the word out there, raise some money and cross our fingers that future generations of women will not have what is known as “the silent killer” affecting their lives.

There are also many fabulous ladies sharing their Frocktober experience on their blogs.  Here are a few of my favourites.
