It is October, and that means it is Breast Cancer Awareness Month! Bras and Honey are raising fund for Breast Cancer Awareness Month with the Wear it Pink event from Breast Cancer Now. We are very excited to be a part of this fantastic cause that raising not only fund but also awareness to this disease that effects so many women. This Year we have set up a Just Giving page for our customers to get involved and donate. And as a thank you for donating to our page we have a discount code for an extra 5% off items already discounted by 15%.
Breast cancer is still a something that effects many people across the world, and while we have made great strides to improve womens chances of surviving the disease, there is still much to be done. We have a few facts that will show you the work that still needs to be done.
1 in 8 women in the UK will be diagnosed with breast cancer at some point in their lifetime.
31% of cancers diagnosed in women are breast cancer.
1 in 5 cases of breast cancer are in women under 50.
Breast cancer rates in England have increased by 90% since records began in 1971.
Wear it Pink
The Wear it Pink campaign is a collective force of scientists, supporters and people affected by breast cancer. This cause, fought by hundreds of thousands of people, fund cutting edge research that aims to ensure no one dies from breast cancer by 2050.
There is definitely more that can be done to help prevent breast cancer having a devastating impact on so many lives, and we want to help in any way we can. That is why we are not only setting up the Just Giving page but we are also fundraising in the Bras and Honey office in a number of ways.
