In honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, Yon-Ka is pleased to partner with Cancer + Careers as a way to give back to brave women and men who are fighting cancer. Cancer + Careers is a division of the Cosmetic Executive Women Foundation. Their primary focus is to give back to women and men who are currently fighting cancer or are in remission by providing them with services, whether they remain in the workforce during treatment or are looking to go back to work after cancer.
Through this partnership, you have the opportunity to give back to women and men in need throughout the month of October when you shop select products from the Yon-Ka range.
Breast Cancer Statistics
About one in eight women in the United States will develop invasive breast cancer during her lifetime. An estimated 252,710 new cases of invasive breast cancer are expected to be diagnosed in 2017, along with 63,410 new cases of non-invasive breast cancer. With so many cases of breast cancer being diagnosed all the time, it’s important that we do our part and give back. We can donate to help fund research for a cure, as well as give money to organizations that provide the right resources to women and men who are currently fighting this battle.
Why It’s Important to Help
For the women and men who are actively seeking treatment for cancer, it’s no easy experience. It’s both physically and emotionally exhausting, especially when you still have to go to work every single day. Fortunately, there are ways to help.
Cancer + Careers is dedicated to helping women and men who are battling cancer thrive in their workplaces. They provide all the advice and tools women and men could need to grow within their careers. Their website provides free publications, coaching, support groups, and much more. It’s designed to eliminate or reduce the fear people are facing and provide them with the confidence they need to go to work every single day.
The organization also helps survivors who are looking for work, either during treatment or after they’ve gone into remission, with job hunting and interviewing advice and a resume review service. All of these resources are free for the people who need them.
How Yon-Ka is Giving Back
Throughout the month of October, Yon-Ka will be running a donation campaign in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month. For each purchase of the Yon-Ka Pamplemousse, Phyto 58, or Vital Defense, $1 will be donated to Cancer + Careers.
To help you spot the products that are part of this donation campaign, all you have to do is look for the pink sticker that each of the three products will be labeled with. The sticker shows Yon-Ka’s commitment to fighting breast cancer, while also reminding you that you’re giving back to the cause.
How Else You Can Help
There are a variety of other things you can do to help women who are fighting breast cancer around the world. There are a number of research foundations you can donate to in order to provide funding to find a cure for this disease. Many organizations also have events and races you can attend and raise money for.
It’s also important that you spread the awareness about breast cancer by encouraging your friends and family to perform routine checks and visit their doctor for a mammogram every year. With so many new cases of breast cancer every year, the best thing you can do is to be proactive about your health.
