October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, the annual national health
campaign to increase awareness of the disease as well as raise funds
for research and offer indispensable information and support to those
affected by it. It’s also “Boss Day” on the 16th, an American event that has made the voyage across the Atlantic. We all have a boss and some of us are lucky to have a good boss too. Why not wish yours a happy boss day?
