Nominate a Breast Cancer Survivor to Raise Awareness and Win a Prize

October is typically recognized as Breast Cancer Awareness month and here at Filters Fast we want to draw both awareness of the disease and also pay tribute to the survivors. In lieu of our normal contest we’d like to hear from you and ask you to nominate a breast cancer survivor for a chance for them to win a pink Crane humidifier. E-mail us at manish@filtersfast.com between today, Monday October 24 and Friday October 28, and we will hold a drawing at the end of the week to randomly select a winner.

In order to be eligible, please include the following in your e-mail:

–          Your name

–          The name of the breast cancer survivor you’re nominating

–          Their contact information

–          How their story is an inspiration to you

After all the submissions are in on Friday we will hold a drawing to randomly select a winner. The nominated breast cancer survivor will win a pink Crane cool mist humidifier in an attractive drop shape. This humidifier relieves cough and cold symptoms, including congestion, sinus irritation, and dry skin, and is especially useful in the dry and winter months.

While Breast Cancer Awareness Month only lasts for 31 days, it’s important to continually raise awareness and educate ourselves about this disease.
