Breast cancer: if it hasn’t touched your life, there’s a good chance it’s touched the life of someone you love.
Millions of women around the world are fighting for their lives, and the Madison Braids team is gearing up to support them by helping fund potentially lifesaving research. Will you join us?
October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. For the first two weeks of October 2021, we’ll be donating twenty percent of all our proceeds to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation, America’s highest-rated breast cancer organization. The BCRF funds critical research, searching for ways to prevent women from developing breast cancer and to find a cure for the millions already battling it.
By buying Madison Braids products during the first half of October, you contribute to a worthy cause and take home gorgeous, time-saving accessories. It couldn’t be easier: you pick out your favorite braids, extensions or hair care products at madisonbraids.com. When you make your purchase, we make a donation. You don’t even pay extra! It’s the perfect opportunity to do good, feel good and look good.
You can make your impact go even further by posting on social media to raise awareness of breast cancer and the search for a cure. Snap a photo of yourself wearing your Madison Braids extensions or braids, completing the look with pink clothing or a pink ribbon in your hair. Add hashtags like #researchisthereason and #breastcancerfundraiser, and be sure to tag @madisonbraids and @bcrfcure.
It’s important to raise awareness because breast cancer happens whether we’re ready for it or not. About one in every eight American women will develop breast cancer in her lifetime—and she’ll have a better shot at surviving if she catches it early. By keeping the breast cancer conversation going, we can educate and encourage women to get mammograms on time, perform monthly self-exams and share concerns with their doctors. This is especially important this year since many mammograms and consultations have been canceled or delayed due to concerns about COVID-19.
Besides promoting early detection, breast cancer awareness can help morally support the millions of warrior women (and their families) currently fighting this disease. Hundreds of thousands of American women are diagnosed every year. Shouldn’t we be rooting for them? Your post might push someone to donate to a research foundation or reach out to a friend who’s been diagnosed and could use a little love.
