October is Breast Cancer Awareness month, bringing people around the world together to raise awareness and funding into research and support.
In the UK, nearly 55,000 people are diagnosed with breast cancer every year, that’s the equivalent of one person every 10 minutes. Breast cancer is the second most common cause of death from cancer in women in the UK, with around 11,500 people dying from breast cancer each year. Breast cancer also affects men, but it’s rare – around 370 men are diagnosed each year. 1 in 8 women in the UK will develop the disease in her lifetime.
Early detection is crucial to successful treatment, so it's important that we continue to spread awareness and raise funds to advance the understanding of breast cancer and its early detection and treatment.
That's why we're proud to introduce the BLK BOX Breast Cancer Awareness range. We will be donating 20% off all sales of the BLK BOX Breast Cancer Awareness t-shirt and Breast Cancer Awareness Squat Stand to the Pink Ribbon Foundation.
ABOUT THE PINK RIBBON FOUNDATION
The Pink Ribbon is an international symbol for the fight against breast cancer. The The Pink Ribbon Foundation is a grant making trust with a mission to fund projects and provide financial support to UK charities which relieve the needs of people who are suffering from, have been affected by breast cancer, or who work to advance the understanding of breast cancer and its early detection and treatment.
The Pink Ribbon Foundation Foundation has very little infrastructure and relies on the hard work given by Trustees, interested parties and its Patrons. This is done in order to maximise the amount that goes to the charities that benefit from the funds raised. Show your support today and go pink!
