Did you know that one in eight women will be diagnosed with breast cancer in their lifetime, and it’s estimated that 2,150 men will be diagnosed with breast cancer each year, too?
While these numbers are shocking, they highlight the importance of early detection, which can greatly improve chances of survival. In fact, you can create an early detection plan to help you remember to conduct self exams and schedule appointments for regular mammograms if you’re at risk or over the age of 40.
You can also show your pink pride and help support Breast Cancer Awareness Month and breast cancer research by shopping with the following retailers in October. Each one listed will donate a portion of the proceeds from your purchase to breast cancer research, and you’ll be able to show your support with fun pink products — or gift them to friends and family so they can show their support, too.
