Each of us probably has been touched by breast cancer in some way. The statistics are staggering – 1 in 8 women will be diagnosed with invasive breast cancer in their lifetime.
I can name way too many incredible women who are no longer with us because of this devastating disease – and can name even more survivors who have battled breast cancer and are in recovery, including members of my family. I always considered myself lucky because none of the women in my family had breast cancer – until my aunt was diagnosed.
Thankfully she is now in remission. But even if you don’t have anyone in your family who has been diagnosed with breast cancer, you need to know that less than 15% of women who get breast cancer have a family member diagnosed with it. We all need to be doing regular screening and self-exams.
Lands’ End’s Pink Thread Project will once again prove that a little pink does a lot of good, the company is raising awareness and funding for the Breast Cancer Research Foundation (BCRF) through the annual campaign, created to further support the BCRF’s mission to be the end of breast cancer by advancing the world’s most promising research.
