Pretty In Pink 2017: 10 Amazing Brands That Support Breast Cancer Research & Awareness
As you (should!) know, October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, a yearly international health crusade aimed at increasing awareness of the disease and to raise funds for research into its cause, prevention, diagnosis, treatment and cure. It was founded in (you guessed it) October, 1985 and the pink ribbon campaign in 1991, by the Susan G. Komen Foundation. Over the years many businesses, companies and corporations have participated Breast Cancer Awareness Month, creating or revamping products for which they donate a portion of proceeds to various foundations in support of breast cancer awareness and research. Here are a few of my favorites. Most sales are only through October 31st, so act fast!
DID YOU KNOW? One in eight women in the United States will be diagnosed with breast cancer in her lifetime.
DID YOU KNOW? Breast cancer is the second leading cause of cancer death among women.
DID YOU KNOW? On average, every 2 minutes a woman is diagnosed with breast cancer and 1 woman will die of breast cancer every 13 minutes.
DID YOU KNOW? Each year it is estimated that over 252,710 women in the United States will be diagnosed with breast cancer and more than 40,500 will die.
DID YOU KNOW? Over 3.3 million breast cancer survivors are alive in the United States today.
I love all of these products so, so much! Much kudos to these companies and corporations for stepping up for the cause as well. Have you run across any cool products for Breast Cancer Awareness Month? Let me know in the comments below!
