October Breast Cancer Awareness Month

Many of us know coworkers, family, and friends who have battled against breast cancer. And here at Sunglass Warehouse, we firmly believe in fighting for meaningful causes (some of you might even remember our BCA Campaign from last year).

According to breastcancer.org, one in eight women in the United States will develop invasive breast cancer in her lifetime. And besides lung cancer, breast cancer death rates are higher than those for any other cancer.

The month of October is devoted to educating men and women about early detection, raising funds for research, and supporting the millions fighting the battle against breast cancer every day. We challenge you to spread the support. Start by wearing pink: many of you have already spotted flashes of pink on the football field and around your community.

It’s the little things – wearing pink loud and proud, practicing breast self-awareness, urging others to get a mammogram, and telling a friend why you support the cause – that make a world of a difference.
