P&G Breast Cancer Awareness Campaign & Gift Basket Giveaway

You guys already know how I feel about Breast Cancer Awareness Month given that my favorite aunt battled the ugly disease for over a year. If you didn’t read my post, read about it here. Well, I’m back to tell you about how P&G is supporting Breast Cancer Awareness month and spreading the word about early detection. Yes, it’s true one of the keys to treating this disease is to detect it as early as possible! My aunt was a true witness that early detection is really the key!

Here are some facts:

  • One in eight women will get breast cancer in her lifetime. One in eight. That is equivalent to an inner circle of girlfriends or the women in an extended family. While breast cancer rates are lower among non-Caucasian women, death rates are higher among African American and Latina women. In fact, every hour and a half a Latina woman dies of breast cancer in the United States.
  • Early detection is the best defense against breast cancer. The earlier breast cancer is detected, the higher the survival rate. In fact, when detected during the early (localized) stage – the five year survival rate is 98 percent.* 

This year, the P&G Breast Cancer Awareness Campaign has partnered with The National Breast Cancer Foundation (NBCF) to not only educate women, but also the men in their lives, about the importance of early detection. Ladies, you can help save lives by spreading the message that early detection is the best defense in the fight against breast cancer, and creating and following an early detection plan while encouraging others to do the same. Gentlemen, this October, decide when your “day of action” will be and encourage the women in your life to take action and create an early detection plan.

You can visit http://www.pgeveryday.com/bca to hear P&G employees’ inspiring stories about moments made possible in their lives due to early detection and download the NBCF’s Early Detection Plan App, available throughout the month of October.
