October is Down Syndrome Awareness Month 🎗️⁠ ⁠ Down Syndrome Awareness Month seeks to break down barriers and focus on promoting advocacy for people with Down syndrome. Men, women, and children with Down syndrome are more than their number of chromosomes. ⁠ ⁠ They are composed of their families, the people they love, the music they play, and the sports they follow. Their interests and friendships are as broad and varied as their personalities. Just like every other human being on earth, they have dreams and goals, too. Through support and advocacy, their achievements know no bounds. ⁠ ⁠ How are you celebrating this month?⁠ .⁠ .⁠ .⁠ .⁠ #parcfl #supportedemployment #disabilityemployment #specialneeds #downsyndrome #theluckyfew #autismawareness #autismspeaks #autismacceptance #autismsupport #disabilityempowerment #disabilityrights #disabilityadvocate #upsidedowns #nothingdownaboutit #downsyndromerocks #downsyndromeawareness #upsyndrome⁠ ⁠

Myth or Fact: Drinking milk (or dairy) causes breast cancer? 🥛⁠ ⁠ Several myths persist about the correlation between dairy intake and the increased risk of breast cancer. Over many decades, studies have shown that dairy consumption does not increase the risk of breast cancer. ⁠ ⁠ October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, a great time to educate yourself and others about the truths and myths about Breast Cancer. You can also show your support by sporting pink. The color pink became associated with breast cancer after the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure distributed pink ribbons to breast cancer survivors in its New York City race in 1991. ⁠ ⁠ Stop by our gift shop today to pick up these pink ribbon magnets made by some of our artists!⁠ .⁠ .⁠ .⁠ .⁠ #parcfl #breastcancer #breastcancerawareness #breast cancerawarnessmonth #stpetersburg #breastcancerawareness2019 #breastcancerawarenessmonth2019 #breastcancerwarrior #breastcancersurvivor #breastcancersurvivors #breastcancerfighter
