Breast Cancer Awareness Products 2013



Statistics tell us that one in eight Australian women will be affected – in some way or another by breast cancer. This is a pretty scary reality, right? 


The question is, how can we help? 



October is National breast Cancer Awareness Month. This is a time where anyone and everyone can help show their support of the National Breast Cancer Foundation (NBCF) by fundraising, donating or buying Pink Ribbon products. The NBCF’s hopeful goal is that by 2030 there will be zero deaths caused by breast cancer. 


So girls, if you are like me and beauty products are your guilty pleasure, pick up a product that helps support the NBCF during National Breast Cancer Awareness Month! 


Here are some of the beautiful products that are available in stores NOW!

  7. I love the fact that every pink item helps for breast cancer.
    Last year I bought a pink sweater from YesStyle, because they are also doing the same type of fundraising. I don't know what I'm going to buy this year.
