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.
Andrea from Fox in Flats has a fab article on 27 dresses for 12 body shapes, sizes and stages
Nikki from Styling You is talking about 12 ways to support Frocktober 2012
Norlin from Baubles, Bubbles and Bags is rocking Frocktober – complete with fabulous “loo selfies”
Lexi from Potty Mouth Mama has been showing off her gorgeous array of vintage frocks
And, of course, there are lots and lots of posts from yours truly!
If you would like to help raise much needed funds for the early detection screening test quest, you can donate at my Everyday Hero Kimba Likes fundraising page. I’ve set myself a fundraising goal of $500.
