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

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.
