In October, we wear pink. Breast Cancer Awareness Month is dedicated to help increase awareness of the most common cancer among American women, after nonmelanoma skin cancer. Breast cancer can also occur in men, but it is not common.
People wear pink ribbons to honour survivors, remember those lost to the disease, and support the progress we are making together to defeat breast cancer.
It is estimated that in the United States, in 2021:
- There will be around 281,550 new cases of invasive breast cancer diagnosed in women and 2,650 cases diagnoses in men.
- About 44,000 breast cancer deaths (43,600 women and 530 men) will occur.
- There will be more than 3.8 million breast cancer survivors, including women still being treated and those who have completed treatment.
G.M. Collin has partnered with CURE BEAST CANCER (Canada) and AMERICAN BREAST CANCER (US) foundations, in a pledge to donate $5 for each Ceramide Comfort Serum and Native Collagen Gel sold in October.
