Go Pink for October
According to statistics by the National Cancer Society 1 in 8 women and 1 in 1,000 men will develop invasive breast cancer in their lifetime. Of course, those with breast cancer are so much more than just number; they are friends, family, co-workers, and neighbors. While there's still no cure, there is hope. Doctors estimate thousands of lives are saved each year through early detection, and that thousands more can be saved by spreading awareness, increasing education, and expanding screenings.
In recognition of National Breast Cancer Awareness month, I am pleased to let you know that over the next five days (through 11:59 PM MST on 10/5/12), 30% of all Weaving Today Shop proceeds go to benefit the National Breast Cancer Foundation (NBCF). The NBCF provides education and free mammograms to help people detect cancer at its earliest—and easiest to treat—stages.
