Every two minutes a woman in the United States is diagnosed with breast cancer. One woman dies from breast cancer every 13 minutes. One in eight women will be diagnosed with breast cancer in their lifetime. Over 245,000 women are diagnosed with breast cancer each year, and over 40,000 will die from it. Over 2,500 men are diagnosed with breast cancer each year, and over 400 will die from it. Breast cancer is the most common cancer among women worldwide.
Hearing these facts and statistics made us want to help find a cure.
Over 2.8 million breast cancer survivors are alive in the United States today, and one of those women is Carol M. Baldwin, right here in Central New York. This made our decision to team up with the Carol M. Baldwin Breast Cancer Research Fund of CNY, INC. one of the easiest decisions we've made.
Throughout October we will be holding a raffle, collecting donations, and selling small items to raise as much money as we can for the fund. Raffle tickets will be sold for $1 each; prizes include sunglasses from Kate Spade, RayBan, Polo, Vera Wang and Oakley, and several other items. Every single dollar collected will be directly donated to the fund. Along with collecting the donation money, we will also be donating 10% of the frame price of select "Pink Ribbon Frames" purchased throughout the month.
