Pink Ribbon BCA Breast Cancer Awareness

Every October is Breast Cancer Awareness month. I am reminded by the women in my life that have battled and overcome breast cancer. It’s also a great time for people and companies to give back to organizations that aim to eradicate this terrible disease. The brands below are offering a portion of their proceeds toward Breast Cancer research and prevention. Breast Cancer Awareness Month has offered retail brands an opportunity to give back to a very important cause.

Breast Cancer Facts

  • About 1 in 8 U.S. women (~12.4%) will develop invasive breast cancer over the course of her lifetime.
  • Besides skin cancer, breast cancer is the most commonly diagnosed cancer among American women. In 2017, it’s estimated that about 30% of newly diagnosed cancers in women will be breast cancers.
  • In women under 45, breast cancer is more common in African-American women than white women. Overall, African-American women are more likely to die of breast cancer (due to early detection and income).
  • A woman’s risk of breast cancer nearly doubles if she has a first-degree relative (mother, sister, daughter) who has been diagnosed with breast cancer. Less than 15% of women who get breast cancer have a family member diagnosed with it.
  • Women who started menstruating (having periods) younger than age 12 have a higher risk of breast cancer later in life. The same is true for women who go through menopause when they’re older than 55.
  • About 85% of breast cancers occur in women who have no family history of breast cancer due to genetic mutations that happen as a result of the aging process and life in general, rather than inherited mutations.
