Roughly one in eight women in the United States will develop breast cancer over the course of her lifetime. While breast cancer still claims the lives of over 43,000 women each year, the overall death rate from this terrible disease has decreased by about 1% each year since 2013. This decline in mortality is, in part, due to an increase in awareness about the disease.
October of every year is recognized as Breast Cancer Awareness Month in the U.S. For the past several years, French-inspired skincare brand Yon-Ka Paris has partnered with Cancer + Careers to raise funds toward the non-profit’s mission of eliminating fear and uncertainty for people working with cancer.
This year, a portion of the proceeds from each purchase of Boosters collection products will be donated to Cancer + Careers. Will you join Yon-Ka Paris in the fight against breast cancer?
Empower and Educate with Cancer + Careers
Cancer + Careers invites survivors to become the boss over cancer. This organization works to empower and educate people with cancer to help them thrive in their workplace. Cancer + Careers provides interactive tools, online resources, and expert advice and puts on educational events toward this mission. They cover topics such as handling discrimination at work, understanding legal rights in the workplace, and how to find meaningful work.
Each year, Cancer + Careers provides aid to over 500,000 people in person, in print, and online. They recognize the growing need for resources as the number of cancer survivors in the United States continues to rise and seeks to do their part in meeting that need. For over 20 years, Cancer + Careers has dutifully served the community of cancer patients, survivors, friends, and families in this role.
Buy Boosters to Benefit Breast Cancer Awareness
Could your skincare game use an upgrade? Sometimes it’s the little things that make the biggest difference and Yon-Ka Paris’ Boosters collection offers a simple way to add some extra oomph to your daily skincare regimen. Choose from three boosters to supercharge your favorite Yon-Ka Paris moisturizer and know that a portion of the proceeds will be used to honor the mission behind Breast Cancer Awareness Month.
One of the following three Boosters could be just what your skin needs:
- Booster Nutri+ – Composed of 99% natural ingredients, this booster delivers a hefty dose of nutrition to dry and damaged skin, restoring the look of skin affected by environmental aggressors with the power of antioxidant vitamins E and F.
- Booster Lift+ – This concentrated anti-aging serum helps restore the skin’s elasticity through a blend of 20 plant extracts designed to tighten the skin for a visibly lifted and toned effect.
- Booster Hydra+ – Help your skin recover its natural glow with the hydrating benefits of this water-based booster featuring a complex of botanical actives including black currant extract, vegetal glycerin, and sodium PCA.
These boosters are intended to be mixed with your usual day or night cream to deliver an added dose of nourishment, lift, or hydration. Simply add a few drops to your favorite Yon-Ka Paris moisturizer and apply to the face and neck after cleansing and spraying on Lotion Yon-Ka.
Support the Mission in Other Ways
Breast Cancer Awareness Month runs from October 1, 2022 through October 31, 2022. It’s the perfect time to support your favorite breast cancer research fund or give to non-profit organizations that provide aid for local cancer patients.
If you’re looking for a forward-thinking cause to rally behind, hitch your wagon to the National Breast Cancer Foundation, Inc. This year they’re raising funds to ensure that every woman has access to essential breast cancer screenings through their RISE campaign: Rally in Screening Everyone. On their website, you’ll also find opportunities to share the story of how your family has been affected by breast cancer or leave a message on the Wall of Support to encourage others on their own cancer journeys.
Should financial support not be the right fit for you and your family at this time, you can always give the gift of your time. You can also raise awareness among friends and family while being proactive about protecting your own health. Talk to your primary care physician about what screenings you might be eligible for and other steps you can take to stay cancer-free.
