October may mark the onset of the fall season, but it is also home to Breast Cancer Awareness Month. As the second most common cancer affecting women – 1 in every 8 women will be diagnosed with breast cancer in her lifetime – there is a great demand to raise awareness for breast cancer’s signs and symptoms. With early detection it is possible to survive breast cancer, which is why doctors push for women between the ages of 40-49 to begin scheduling their mammogram appointments. Even more importantly, women between the ages of 50-74 should continue prevention by getting mammograms at least once a year.
Breast cancer awareness is the reason why you see pink everywhere throughout October. In February, pink is the color of love and romance. However, in October, pink takes on a tougher persona. It becomes the color of the physical and mental strength these warriors battling breast cancer wield.
To honor Breast Cancer Awareness Month, and those whose lives it has affected, Saint Vintage is going pink in October by donating 50% of ALL pink jewelry sales to Stand Up to Cancer all month long! We have just uploaded some new pink jewelry onto our online store so that you can begin shopping for a cause!
