Ice.com has supported Breast Cancer Awareness month (and year) for as long as we can remember. We know just about everyone here has helped a friend or family member diagnosed with cancer. The support from loved ones is an immeasurable help throughout their battle. Ice.com believes that one of the fastest ways to reach a cure is through awareness, which is why we love seeing the pink ribbon and any other pink wearable items (clothing, flowers, stickers, jewelry 😉 ) to show support.
Ice.com wants to spread the word and show you how you can help quicken the cure! The National Breast Cancer Coalition (NBCC) has declared a deadline to end breast cancer, setting a target of January 1, 2020. Ice.com has been supporting this deadline for several years and know it can be reached.
Here are some things you need to know about breast cancer and being aware:
1. Breast Cancer is the most commonly diagnosed cancer in women.
2. 1 in 8 women will be diagnosed with breast cancer in their lifetime.
3. Each year more than 220,000 women in the U.S. are diagnosed with breast cancer.
While these numbers are scary, they are on the decline year over year. Continuing this trend is up to all of us: it starts with word of mouth and your support. Stay in the know by checking out the National Breast Cancer Foundation website on how you can help support the cause.
Ice.com is also showcasing a Think Pink Jewelry Sale to support and raise awareness for Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Check out the jewelry pieces here and save 10% on all pink jewelry throughout October. Use code PINK10 at checkout.
Above all, the most important thing is to get checked regularly and make sure you are up to date on breast cancer information and resources.
We’d love to hear your stories and how you support the cause so please share below.
