Breast Cancer Awareness

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

Every year, caring companies around the globe support this worthy cause by launching limited-edition pink ribbon products, with a portion of proceeds being donated to various organizations that support breast cancer awareness and research.

Breast cancer is a complex disease that will affect 1 in 9 Canadian women during their lifetime. In 2014, it is estimated that 24,400 women and 210 men in Canada will be diagnosed with breast cancer, and that 5,000 women and 60 men will die from the disease.*

Help support the fight against breast cancer this month and purchase pink ribbon products, like the five listed below.

For more information on breast cancer, visit either the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation or Rethink Breast Cancer.
