My Top 7 Favorite Products Supporting Breast Cancer Awareness 2014

As many of you know, October is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month, an annual campaign created to raise awareness about this treatable disease. By increasing awareness about early detection, this disease is easier to treat and control in its early stages. I’d like to share some very enlightening facts in an effort to raise awareness about this disease:

    • Every 2 minutes, a woman in the U.S. is diagnosed with breast cancer
    • In the U.S., 1 in 8 women will be diagnosed with breast cancer in her lifetime
    • Every 19 seconds, someone in the world is diagnosed with breast cancer
    • Every 15 minutes, a woman dies of breast cancer in the U.S
    • When breast cancer is detected early in the localized stage, the 5 year survival rate is over 95%
    • It has been estimated that if every woman over the age of 50 had her yearly mammogram, breast cancer deaths in this age group would drop by 25% or more

In an effort to support the BCA cause, many brands create special pink themed products to sell during the month of October to raise awareness and money to support this important cause. Following are seven BCA products that impressed and enticed me this year, hope you learn something new or find a product to try that supports the cause:

Ballerina Pink Tieks ($175) I adore the yummy, comfy, uber soft portable leather flats from Tieks. For BCA month this year, Tieks has partnered with the American Cancer Society in an effort to raise awareness about the importance of early detection of breast cancer. They are encouraging everyone to wear pink during the month of October in order to show your support of this important cause – like their adorbs Ballerina Pink Flats that I’ll be rocking all month long to show my solidarity for this cause.

Avon ANEW Vitale Night Cream ($28) is a refreshing hydrating gel night cream that helps energize and strengthen dull, overtired skin. Overnight it gives skin a youthful-looking well-rested appearance, and over time it diminishes the appearance of fine lines and enlarged pores and it revitalizes skin. And with every ANEW Vitale Night Cream purchase, Avon is donating $5 to the Avon Foundation Breast Cancer Crusade.

SWAROVSKI® ELEMENTS Rose Gold Plated Charm Bracelet ($85) is an elegant Limited Edition crystal rose pearl bracelet with a delicate filigree Victorian heart locket that you fill with Lisa Hoffman fragrance beads. And for the entire month of October, 100% of profits from this limited edition bracelet will benefit the National Breast Cancer Coalition.

Boob Tube+ Multi-Action Bust Firmer ($48) is a cult-fav lifting, firming, toning, smoothing and brightening bust revitalizing cream that’s safe enough to be used on your face too. This impressive bust cream comes with a leaflet that illustrates how to correctly do a self breast exam and a $1 from every Boob Tube+ sold during the month of October will be donated to Look Good . . .
