Breast Cancer Awareness Month
Some women are our mothers, some are our sisters. Many of them, still, are our family, friends, and coworkers. It's likely that you love a woman, or at least have been loved by one yourself. Heck, there's a pretty decent chance are that you're a woman! Women are about half of everyone, after all. One could continue on, however the message may now seem abundantly clear; women play an irrevocable part of our lives and, frankly, of life itself.
Sometimes, obvious things like this can go with or without saying. What isn't obvious is the threat of breast cancer, and how to join in the fight against it.
Breast cancer is the most common cancer affecting American women, and the second most fatal. The American Cancer Society estimates that 2021 will see a total of 281,550 women diagnosed with invasive breast cancer; or about 1 in every 8. Of those women, 43,600 are expected lose this battle.
Breast Cancer Awareness Month - What can you do?
While it's not only women-led brands like Stella & Ruby that ought to do what they can to fight this, we are very proud to announce that 25% of every single purchase on our website this October, not just the pink items (though feel free to show off your support with them!), will go to the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation. It's that simple. No codes, no promotional items. Simply shop for your favorite styles as you like, and a portion will go towards saving women's lives.
Like we said, you don't need to purchase pink colored styles to take part in supporting the fight against breast cancer. If, however, you want to wear your allegiance on you body, or maybe you just like pink, we have plenty of options to choose from. Here are some of them:
These are only a handful of examples, maybe you'll find something you didn't even know you needed! We thank you again, and are excited that you can be part of our contribution to the fight.
