Every 2 minutes a woman is diagnosed with breast cancer.
Every 13 minutes a woman dies of breast cancer.
One in 8 women in the US will be diagnosed with breast cancer in her lifetime.
About 440 men will die from breast cancer this year.
Despite these alarming statistics, it is reassuring to know that today in the US there are over 2.8 million breast cancer survivors alive and well. Whether you know someone who has been diagnosed, know someone who was lost to the disease, know a survivor, have been diagnosed yourself or are just generally looking to get involved and informed, it is important to Think Pink this October. Breast Cancer Awareness Month is celebrated every October in a hope to raise international awareness and raise substantial funds for research into its cause, prevention, diagnosis, treatment and cure.
Each year, our team tries to emphasize not only the importance of this campaign but also the importance of promotional product that helps facilitate awareness. We want your company to engage in the fight and join in this powerful community. Plus, with October being a month away, there’s still time for great cost-savings on these items. Purchase Think Pink products to generate awareness at the office, host a fundraising event, join a walk, encourage annual mammograms, or just support, comfort and inform your employees and customers. You will be building your own internal community while aligning your company with a world-wide campaign underscoring the importance of teamwork, love and support. When it comes to fighting cancer, we are all one team. It is never too early or too late to join the fight. October may only come once a year, but breast cancer strikes millions of lives every day. All of our teams- our Strän team included- should be joining together to help build one Think Pink team. The easiest and simplest way to start is by preparing your promotional product for this October accordingly.
