EVERY year October marks Breast Cancer Awareness Month. A month dedicated to both raising awareness and money for this increasingly important cause.
It is predicted that one in every eight women will suffer with breast cancer in their lifetime. Whilst survival rates have improved drastically over the past few decades, around 11, 400 people still die every year. Awareness campaigns such as Breast Cancer Awareness Month are key to lowering these numbers andhelping us to beat breast cancer one step at a time.
So, what can you do? Well each October, many companies get involved with the charity spirit and create special products in order to raise money and awareness for breast cancer. Here are just a few of the products you can buy to help the cause:
