Accessories from MobileMars.com Benefiting Susan G. Komen®

susan-g-komen The story of how the Komen Foundation was established never fails to inspire. In 1982, Nancy G. Brinker promised Susan G. Komen, her dying sister, that she would do everything to put an end to breast cancer. And that is how the Susan G.

They seem to abide by a condition that they will almost always get tangled, even when you’ve taken pains to wrap them neatly and carefully for storage.
