Breast Cancer Awareness Color: Pink
Breast Cancer Awareness Month: October
October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Breast cancer affects one in eight women during their lives. Breast cancer is the most common form of cancer among American women. Awareness Depot donates a percentage of this sale to the Susan G. Komen Foundation to help fight breast cancer. You can show your support by displaying breast cancer awareness product such as pink ribbon pin, pink awareness bracelets etc...
A pink ribbon is the most prominent symbol of breast cancer awareness. Pink ribbons, which can be made inexpensively, are sometimes sold as fundraisers.
The pink ribbon is associated with individual generosity, faith in scientific progress, and a "can-do" attitude. It encourages consumers to focus on the emotionally appealing ultimate vision of a cure for breast cancer, rather than on the fraught path between current knowledge and any future cures.
During Breast Cancer Awareness Month each October, people raise money by organizing activities such as theme parties or a "pink day" (when employees wear pink clothing or accessories) at work. The money raised is donated to the organizers' choice of breast cancer care or research programs.
