A Show of Pink: National Breast Cancer Awareness Month

The color pink is the color of universal love of oneself and of others. Pink represents friendship, affection, harmony, inner peace, and approachability.

Breast Cancer Awareness ribbons are symbols meant to show support or raise consciousness for a cause. The pink ribbon is an international symbol of breast cancer awareness. Pink ribbons and the color pink in general, identify the wearer or promoter with the breast cancer brand and express moral support for women with breast cancer. The breast cancer ribbon was originally used in peach by a woman whose sister, daughter and granddaughter had breast cancer. She distributed the ribbon to call attention to the inadequate funding for Breast Cancer research. In 1993, the Estee Lauder Companies founded The Breast Cancer Research Foundation and established the pink ribbon as its symbol.

National Breast Cancer Awareness Month was founded in 1985 in October as a partnership between the American Cancer Society and a pharmaceutical company who produced anti breast cancer drugs. The campaign was to create awareness and to promote mammography as the most effective weapon in the fight against breast cancer.

We’re Glad to Help

A family friend had requested that Bravo come up with this new mastectomy pad as she couldn’t stand the weight of other mastectomy pads. They pulled her shoulder down, and she was finding them painful to wear. https://www.brapads.com/shop/post-mastectomy-breast-forms/

In addition to the breast form we also offer our Shaper Plus to use during reconstruction surgery. https://www.brapads.com/shop/shaper-plus-bra-pads/ . This shaper pad can be turned into position, which means it can be adjusted to fill specific areas as needed.
