As we head into the last few days of October, we mark the end of Breast Cancer Awareness Month. The most common form of cancer in American women (aside from skin cancer), breast cancer awareness is a cause that's close to the hearts of many people. According to the National Breast Cancer Foundation (NBCF), 1 in 8 women in the U.S. will be diagnosed with breast cancer during their lifetime and over 40,000 women will die from the invasive disease this year alone. It isn't just women, either—in 2020, the NBCF estimates that 2,620 men will be diagnosed with breast cancer as well.
While there are a lot of ways to raise awareness and get involved with Breast Cancer Awareness Month, you can also give back while you shop, thanks to the brands and retailers that are donating to breast cancer organizations throughout the month of October. Proceeds from the sales will go towards everything from research to better access to screening and early detection.
Below are a few great items to shop for in case you forgot to make a purchase earlier this month!
50% of the proceeds from every purchase of one of our Breast Cancer charms will support our research grant through the Breast Cancer Research Foundation, The Kendra Scott Award in Honor of Holley Rothell Kitchen.
