6 Prayer Shawls to Make for Breast Cancer Awareness Month

6 Prayer Shawls to Make for Breast Cancer Awareness Month
October marks Breast Cancer Awareness Month, and we're turning our thoughts to sharing comfort and sympathy to those in our lives who need it most. Breast cancer is the most common form of cancer for women worldwide, and the second most common in the United States.

Whether you walk or run for the cure or donate to a chosen charity, support for breast cancer awareness is strengthened when we unite for a cause worth fighting for.

One of the best ways to support awareness of breast cancer is to support those around us who have been affected. Making a prayer or healing shawl is a thoughtful way of reminding someone that you have them in your thoughts.

Here are six of our favorite shawl patterns, all beautiful ways to show your support to whomever the receiver may be. Make one in pink, the color used to recognize breast cancer awareness, or use your favorite soft yarn in the color of your choice. No matter the look, the message and meaning of the shawl is what counts most.
