Breast Cancer Awareness Month

 

The best way to fight breast cancer is to have a plan that helps you detect the disease in its early stages. Create your Early Detection Plan to receive reminders to do breast self-exams, and schedule your clinical breast exams and mammograms based on your age and health history.” (National Breast Cancer Foundation, Inc.)

 

In addition to taking the steps to help you prevent and/or detect early stage breast cancer, it’s equally important to help those who have already been afflicted with this life-threatening disease by supporting charities and organizations that conduct on-going research in the prevention and treatment of breast cancer.

 

In honor of this campaign, a number of companies (including Clinique, Conair, Sephora, etc.) are participating by donating a percentage of the purchase price for specific products to the cause. Below are some items that are available for purchase that support Breast Cancer research.
