It’s the beginning of April, it’s Friday, and it’s Easter weekend! There are so many reasons to smile today.
And for those of you who celebrate, the Saint Vintage team wants to wish you a Happy Good Friday as well!
As you know, a new month means another month dedicated to a specific cancer cause. For April, it is Esophageal Cancer Awareness Month, which means we will be raising awareness in periwinkle all month long!
Did you know that 3,410 women will be diagnosed with esophageal cancer this year?
Developing cancer in the esophagus is much more common in men than it is women and there are quite a few stages that esophageal cancer can be found in. Like any cancer, the earlier it is detected, the easier it is to treat. Treatment for esophageal cancer has greatly improved over the years, so, currently, around 20% of patients survive at least 5 years after their first diagnosis!
But that’s not enough – we want that number to increase! That is why our special Esophageal Cancer Awareness Love Links donates 50% of proceeds to Stand Up to Cancer! The more money that goes into funding cancer research, the closer we can get to finding a cure.
Our beautiful, handcrafted periwinkle Love Links is now available online! See it here.
Do you know someone who is an Esophageal Cancer warrior, survivor, or hero? Purchase a bracelet in their honor! You will also be investing in the lives of others who are currently battling this horrible disease. But don’t wait – this bracelet will only be available online until the end of April!
Spread the word, join us in the fight, and help us raise awareness by posting your own esophageal cancer awareness pictures as well!
