October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month and as many of you know, Charitable Creations donates 10% of our sales year round to many charities and causes.
In honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, from Oct. 1st through the 31st, I will be donating 15% from select items in my Etsy Shop, to The Breast Cancer Research Foundation.
The Breast Cancer Research Foundation is an independent 501 (c) (3) not-for-profit organization whose mission is to achieve prevention and a cure for breast cancer in our lifetime by providing critical funding for innovative clinical and translational research at leading medical centers worldwide, and increasing public awareness about good breast health.
It is estimated by the American Cancer Society that in 2009 about 192,370 new cases of invasive breast cancer will be diagnosed among women in the United States. At this time there are about 2.5 million breast cancer survivors in the United States.
In 2009, ACS estimates that about 40,170 women will die from breast cancer in the United States. Breast cancer is the second leading cause of cancer death in women, exceeded only by lung cancer.
In men, 1,910 new cases are projected in 2009, with 440 deaths.
Help us raise funds for Breast Cancer research and many other important causes and charities.
