This Fall, we are excited to partner with Living Beyond Breast Cancer (LBBC) and donate proceeds from 2 of our breast cancer cause awareness scrubs, Celebrate Pink Black and Wild and Pink Black prints. We will be joining our sister brand, ChefUniforms.com in making a donation, over $5,000 in total towards the fight against breast cancer!
LBBC’s mission is to connect people with trusted breast cancer information and be a community of support because no one should have to go through any stage of breast cancer alone. They help anyone diagnosed with breast cancer: from being newly diagnosed, in treatment, living with advanced breast cancer or in recovery and even loved ones of those impacted by this disease. They offer a holistic approach to getting people informed and taken care of.
People are always ready to help and go all out in October. They wear pink, not only because it is a hot color but it looks good on everyone, female and males! But after reading one of LBBC’s blogs by one of their bloggers, Beth Caldwell speaking about October 13th being Metastatic Breast Cancer Awareness Day, we wanted to help educate and help people to donate more to this type of cancer.
She was passionate and spoke of what someone who is diagnosed with this type of cancer goes through.
Did you know it is vastly underfunded?
Sometimes you take it for granted that through the excitement from all the fundraising efforts in finding a cure for women and men diagnosed with breast cancer, that you don’t think that this is a daily reminder of their personal struggle with this disease. It is a rough month for thousands of people and their families. According to Metastatic Breast Cancer Network, Metastatic Breast Cancer is stage IV and represents 6-10% of new breast cancer cases and is deadly! There is no cure! The number of people living with this type of cancer in the US is estimated to be over 155,000 and the average survival time is 3 years. Unfortunately, funding dollars towards metastatic research is less than 5%.
With stats like that, let’s help spread the word about this brutal cancer and donate more dollars to help people affected by it.
Read Beth Caldwell’s personal experience titled Pink to Black on LBBC’s Blog. It was real and heartfelt.
