The start of October also marks the start of Breast Cancer Awareness Month - an annual international health campaign organized by major breast cancer charities to increase awareness of the disease and raise funds for breast cancer research. Breast cancer is the second most common cancer in American women. It is estimated that in 2021, approximately 30% of all new women cancer diagnoses will be breast cancer.
According to the National Breast Cancer Foundation (NBCF), 1 in 8 women in the U.S. will be diagnosed with breast cancer during their lifetime. In 2021 alone, it’s estimated that among women in the U.S., there will be 281,550 new cases of invasive breast cancer and 43,600 deaths. Although rare, men can get breast cancer too.
While there are many ways to raise awareness and participate in Breast Cancer Awareness Month, you can also give back when you shop with us throughout the month of October. 15 percent of all proceeds from every purchase of the Baroque Pearl 14K Gold Filled Beaded Bracelet will be donated to Susan G. Komen, a foundation whose mission is to save lives by meeting the most critical needs in our communities and investing in breakthrough research to prevent and cure cancer.
Our 14K gold-filled, beaded bracelet will feature a lustrous pink pearl, in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month. This stretchy bracelet can be worn alone or stacked, is so chic & elegant, and is perfect for everyday wear!
With every purchase, we may just get one step closer to finding a cure for breast cancer.
