So many of us take our health for granted, and unfortunately, it’s not until we’re faced with a devastating diagnosis that we’re reminded how fragile life is. This year, approximately 230, 480 new patients will be diagnosed with invasive breast cancer, and the American Cancer Society estimates as many as 39,520 sufferers will die from breast cancer this year. These staggering statistics are what drive us to make a difference.
October is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month. The purpose of the dedication is to educated women and men about the importance of early detection. More and more women are getting mammograms to detect breast cancer in its earliest stages and as a result, breast cancer death rates are declining. Support breast cancer awareness and encourage the women in your life to get mammograms on a regular basis and to practice breast self-awareness.
In honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, the team at SunglassWarehouse.com would like to dedicate this month’s contest to the millions of women and men fighting the battle against breast cancer every day. We’re asking you to spread breast cancer awareness by adding this button to your personal blog or website.
By adding this button, you are supporting those currently battling breast cancer, survivors and past fighters. For doing so, we’d like to thank you by giving one lucky winner a pair of pink sunglasses, a pink scarf, and a pair of special breast cancer awareness socks!
Together, we must show those currently battling the disease that they’re not alone, and that we are here for them each and every step of the way.
