Hello beautiful people! About a month or so ago, a wonderful bookstagrammer reached out to me in regards to a fun October 2020 read-a-thon challenge. Sam @ Turning the Page on Cancer created this amazing read-a-thon to help spread awareness on Metastatic Breast Cancer (MBC) and raise funds for researchers to find a cure.
After reading her story and getting to see what kind of incredible human being she is, there was simply no way I could say no to not participating and joining her team. Please read about Sam, her story, the creation of her read-a-thon, and ways you can help simply by being an avid reader. It doesn’t take much to make a huge difference.
