Do It For the Girls: Shop the Brands Supporting Breast Cancer Awareness Month
Breast cancer is the most common cancer affecting Australian women. In 2020 alone it's predicted that 19,998 women (and 170 men) will be diagnosed with breast cancer*. That's a lot!
While it's important to check your boobs year 'round, October is National Breast Cancer Awareness month, so we shine an extra special light on it in order to remind everyone (women and men!) to Check. Their. Breasts!
It is important to remember that while most people survive breast cancer, (in 2011-2015 that number was 90.8 percent*) many of us are affected by it and every small donation counts. As a show of support, many brands release limited edition goodies and donate percentages of products sold to breast cancer charities across Australia.
Below, we've rounded up a handful of products you can buy this month knowing that a good portion goes towards breast cancer research and helping those affected by it.
