Spirits Unlimited promotes Breast Cancer awareness


October is the national Breast Cancer Awareness month and what would be a better way to show support than to help prevent it by spreading the word.

In the spirit of sharing and caring Spirits Unlimited Middletown has created an awareness booth highlighting the Hope Shiraz, selling at an amazingly low $10:99 (750 ml) per bottle, and the Houdini corkscrew at $29.99 each.

The shiraz comes from the Hope Estate, located in Hunter Valley, Australia. It's the vision and labor of love of a pharmacist turned winemaker, Michael Hope, who lost his own mother to cancer.

According to the official website, the shiraz exhibits an elegant style, with plum and spicy pepper characters that have been enhanced from time in French oak.

The wine is a product of the partnership between Michael Hope and the National Breast Cancer Foundation and the money raised is used for research work for prevention and cure.

According to the Mayo Clinic, breast cancer is cancer that forms in the cells of the breasts. Breast cancer can occur in both men and women, but it's far more common in women.

After skin cancer, breast cancer is the most common cancer diagnosed in women in the United States. But breast cancer rates have fallen in recent years, though doctors aren't certain why. Still, for many women, breast cancer is the disease they fear most.

Public support for breast cancer awareness and research funding has helped improve the diagnosis and treatment of breast cancer. Breast cancer survival rates have increased and the number of deaths has been declining, thanks to earlier detection, new treatments and a better understanding of the disease.
