How You Can Help Defeat Breast Cancer: A Partnership with Susan G. Komen
Cancer continues to be one of the most significant risks to our lives and the lives of those closest to us. Apart from skin cancer, breast cancer is the most common cancer of all cancers among women in the U.S. and the second most fatal for women.
October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month
Breast cancer is a pervasive threat. It's the second deadliest cancer for women in the U.S., only surpassed by skin cancer. This isn't a new issue; its history traces back to ancient Greece. But it gained media attention in the 1980s, thanks to public figures like former First Ladies Betty Ford and Nancy Reagan, and Susan G. Komen founder Nancy Brinker.
Understanding the Risk Factors
A combination of risk factors causes cancer; some we may be able to control, such as lifestyle choices, and others that we cannot, such as age and unknown contributing factors. Spreading awareness of breast cancer and its risks allows individuals to take steps in their own lives, but there is room for progress elsewhere. Much work still needs to be done to find cures and get us to our vision of a world without breast cancer.
So what can we do to change the current situation?
So, what's the next step? We at Farmers Defense have partnered with Susan G. Komen to launch our Defeat Breast Cancer Sleeves. These aren't just sleeves; they're a statement. A statement that says, "We're committed to ending breast cancer." When you buy a pair, 10% of the sale goes directly to Susan G. Komen.
