Time To End Breast Cancer

October is breast cancer awareness month and each year the Estée Lauder CompaniesBreast Cancer Campaign unites and inspires people globally in the mission to create a breast cancer-free world. Founded in 1992 by the late Evelyn H. Lauder with the launch of the iconic Pink Ribbon, the Breast Cancer Campaign is the Estée Lauder Companies’ largest corporate social impact program and supported by their employees worldwide. The campaign has raised more than $99 million to support global research, education and medical services, with more than $80 million funding 321 medical research grants through the Breast Cancer Research Foundation (BCRF).

Breast cancer is not a disease that has a single story. It is as diverse and complex as our global community and it profoundly impacts everyone it touches – patients, loved ones, doctors, caregivers, advocates and more. My mum had this terrible disease twice in her life and I am very grateful that she successfully fought it twice. However, I know about the impact it has on the whole family.

In support of everyone touched by breast cancer, this year’s campaign features layers of the Pink Ribbon—the universally recognized symbol for breast cancer. Shades of pink, textures, and designs intertwine to signify the diversity of the disease, the equity they hope to help achieve and the unity they have in support of the entire breast cancer community worldwide.

Together, the Estée Lauder Companies are accelerating the progress towards a more equitable and beautiful future for the breast cancer community and beyond. It’s #TimeToEndBreastCancer.

How can you help? The 2021 Breast Cancer Campaign has launched a new social media call-to-action to rally supporters and raise funds for BCRF: Join them in helping fund lifesaving breast cancer research by grabbing your favorite pink lipstick, drawing a ribbon, sharing your story, and tagging 5 people in your post to do the same.

Girls Support Girls

October is breast cancer awareness month and each year the Estée Lauder Companies launch some of their iconic products as a part of the Pink Ribbon collection, of which proceeds of the profits are donated to research. A movement that started with one woman, Evelyn H. Lauder. In 1992, the Breast Cancer Awareness Campaign was born when the visionary became troubled by the lack of awareness, funding and resources necessary to overcome the disease.

Even that this post is pretty late in the last days of October (I hadn’t received the infos in time…), I don’t want you to miss this beautiful initiative by the Estée Lauder Companies as raising awareness for breast cancer is very dear to my heart. My mum had it twice and survived it. Being close to someone that goes through this terrible disease, is eye-opening.

October_IWearPink

October is Breast Cancer Awareness month and wearing pink is a great way of showing your support. I am in love with this uber-cute pink ruffled silk-mikado mini dress by Moschino and those lace-up fuchsia rubber rain boots iconby RED Valentino.

Many companies, such as Estée Lauder and Bobbi Brown, sell special products to raise awareness and funds by donating part of the retail price. This year, Estée Lauder compagnies’ Breast Cancer Awareness (BCA) Campaign is celebrating its 20th anniversary in the fight against breast cancer and honouring the life and legacy of Evelyn H. Lauder, BCA campaign founder and Pink Ribbon co-creator. This is definitely worth supporting!
