BREAST CANCER AWARENESS

Posted by Mary Oppel on Fri, Oct 05, 2012 @ 02:45 PM

In honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, we pay tribute to Evelyn H. Lauder, daughter-in-law of Estee Lauder, whose fight for a cure founded the Breast Cancer Awareness Campaign (BCA Campaign) and co-created the iconic pink ribbon.  A decade later, the campaign has raised more than $35 Million to fund grants for medical research.  To learn more about the BCA Campaign, visit http://www.bcacampaign.com.

The CDC reports that breast cancer is one of the leading causes of cancer deaths among women, and is the most common cancer among women in the U.S.,affecting 1 in 8 women. The American Cancer Society estimates this year 226,870 U.S women will be diagnosed with new cases of invasive breast cancer-resulting in over 39,500 deaths.

You can  help fight for a cure by simply shopping for a cause.  Look for products that support breast cancer research. Many retailers like Bloomingdales, offer beauty and clothing products with 100% of the proceeds funding breast cancer research.
