Silk’n to Donate for Breast Cancer Awareness
October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. At Silk’n, we realize that millions of people are affected each year by breast cancer. The statistics on the disease are staggering. Did you know that 1 in every 8 woman will develop invasive breast cancer in the course of her lifetime? Or that in this year alone, 231,840 new cases of invasive breast cancer are expected to be diagnosed in woman in the United States? In 2013, nearly 40,000 people died from breast cancer.

With these numbers, it is no wonder that most people know someone who has been diagnosed with breast cancer. It is a devastating disease that affects not only the life of the diagnosed, but their family and friends as well. We are grateful for nonprofit organizations like the Breast Cancer Research Foundation, which spend days and nights researching the disease to improve treatments and find a cure.
According to it’s CEO, Myra J. Biblowit, the organization’s goal is to “Accelerate the breakthroughs bringing us closer to a cure to speed up the progress that will improve survivorship and quality of life for breast cancer patients today.” BCRF spends 88% of its money on breast cancer research, and 3% on awareness programs. It is an organization that is doing it’s best to make the world a better place for all of us.
Silk’n commends the organization for the work it is doing. To help increase awareness of breast cancer and further the cause, Silk’n will donate 20% of all proceeds from the Pink SonicCleanPlus and Pink Pedi device during the month of October. It’s our way of saying thank you to the many individuals who work so hard to better the lives of others. We urge you to donate to the cause of breast cancer, hoping that a cure will soon be found.
