Brands Supporting Breast Cancer Awareness Month
October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, an international health campaign to increase awareness of the disease, promote screening and early testing, and raise funds for research into its cause, prevention, diagnosis, treatment and cure.
According to the National Breast Cancer Foundation, in 2020, an estimated 276,480 new cases of invasive breast cancer will be diagnosed in women in the U.S. alone.
Well-known brands and retailers are working with nonprofit organizations to also raise money to provide information and support to those affected by breast cancer. Here are the ways brands are supporting Breast Cancer Awareness Month:
