October is only a few days away, and not only is it a spooky season, but it’s also Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Let’s get ahead of the curve and support women affected by the disease. According to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), 240,000 women in the United States are diagnosed with breast cancer yearly.
Though you may not be able to donate large sums of money, companies have already begun rolling out initiatives to support breast cancer research with a simple purchase. From beauty fashion to jewelry, GU has curated a list of items you can purchase that will directly benefit breast cancer research.
