Breast Cancer Awareness Month Kickoff

Today marks the start of breast cancer awareness month in the U.S. Across the nation the color pink is popping up in the form of tributes, product launches and support efforts. While many companies choose to take this opportunity to strengthen their brands or draw attention to their products we would like to draw everyone’s attention back to the point of it all, BREAST CANCER AWARENESS.

Here are some quick facts courtesy of the Susan G. Komen foundations:

breast cancer awareness month1 in 8 women will be diagnosed with breast cancer.Each year there are 1.7 million cases of breast cancer diagnosed.Breast cancer accounts for 1 in 3 cases of cancer diagnosis among women.

While advances in detection and treatment have advanced significantly there is no cure for this potentially deadly disease.

It is with these statistics in mind that we take time today to remind everyone why they are seeing pink and what it all means. As always, JUST GIVE! If you would like to learn more about breast cancer please visit: http://www.komen.org .
