In a perfect world, breast cancer or any other type of cancer would not exist. I know by first hand how devastating this disease can get. Having lost my grandma to it, and having my mother go through it, has made me aware of how vulnerable all of us, both women and men, are to this illness.
According to studies, about 1 in 8 U.S. women (about 12%) will develop invasive breast cancer throughout their lifetime. In 2020, an estimated 276,480 new cases of invasive breast cancer are expected to be diagnosed in women in the U.S., along with 48,530 new cases of non-invasive (in situ) breast cancer. Although these numbers might be alarming, nowadays, people have a higher chance of survival if there is early detection.
Amidst the current worldwide pandemic, many brands are still giving back to find a cure by launching limited-edition collections and empowering campaigns to bring awareness to the disease. Here are some brands giving back for Breast Cancer Awareness Month.
This is the scarf that gives back. 50% of the purchase price (up to $25,000) of this limited-edition silk scarf goes directly to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation.
