Oo-la-la, pink is the color this month & buying in will help raise money for the fight against breast cancer. October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month & retailers & brands are taking part by offer products that give a percentage of the sales to the cause.
Seeing as it’s Breast Cancer AWARENESS, before skipping to the goods take a second and take a moment to read these breast cancer statistics from U.S BreastCancer.org.
- About 39,620 women in the U.S. were expected to die in 2013 from breast cancer, though death rates have been decreasing since 1989 — with larger decreases in women under 50. These decreases are thought to be the result of treatment advances, earlier detection through screening, and increased awareness.
- In 2013, there were more than 2.8 million women with a history of breast cancer in the U.S. This includes women currently being treated and women who have finished treatment.
- A woman’s risk of breast cancer approximately doubles if she has a first-degree relative (mother, sister, daughter) who has been diagnosed with breast cancer. About 15% of women who get breast cancer have a family member diagnosed with it.
- About 1 in 8 U.S. women (just under 12%) will develop invasive breast cancer over the course of her lifetime.
Okay, now on to the product details.
