Unfortunately, breast cancer touches all of our lives and is becoming more prevalent each year. One in Eight women in the US will be diagnosed with the disease in her lifetime. That’s crazy!! My life was personally affected by this disease recently and that motivated me to get involved. I don't want to imagine my sister, best friend, or favorite cousin having to go through this; we have to find a cure now!
The American Cancer Society's mission is to create a breast cancer free world where there are more birthdays celebrated by survivors! Proceeds from Making Strides Against Breast Cancer are sourced solely to breast cancer funding. They have fabulous local programs like Road to Recovery, Reach to Recovery, and Look Good… Feel better. The other portion of money raised goes toward national research to help finish the fight against breast cancer! ACS is the number one non-governmental contributor to cancer research; with 46 of their funded researchers winning the Nobel Prize. So it’s a pretty reputable organization that I feel proud to support!
To support the amazing work that the American Cancer Society's Making Strides Against Breast Cancer is doing every day, we are donating 30% of all PINK sales this month to Making Strides! We have a special section, Style with a Cause, set up in our Etsy Shop to showcase each style that is available in PINK!
