Sprightly Goes Pink in October for Breast Cancer Awareness
One in eight women in the United States will be diagnosed with breast cancer in her lifetime. Breast cancer is one of the most commonly found cancers in American women, and it is estimated that in 2020, approximately 30% of all new cancer diagnoses in women will be found in their breast. According to The National Breast Cancer Foundation, in 2020 an estimated 276,480 new cases of invasive breast cancer will be diagnosed in women in the United States, as well as 48,530 new cases of non-invasive breast cancer. An estimated 42,170 women are expected to die from breast cancer this year in the U.S. alone.
Although these stats may seem disheartening, it is important to note that there are over 3.5 million breast cancer survivors in the United States. Death rates from breast cancer have been declining since about 1990, in part due to better screening and early detection, continually improving treatment options, and increased awareness. This is where Sprightly comes into play! At Sprightly CBD, we want to see more grandmas, moms, aunts, sisters, and daughters living their best life, breast cancer free.
Sprightly CBD + Gardeners for Hope
For the month of October, we have made it our goal at Sprightly CBD to bring more awareness and hope to the fight against breast cancer. For every product sold, we will be donating $1 to Gardeners for Hope, a local Eastern North Carolina non-profit organization that directly supports individuals in the community who are battling breast cancer by helping with basic needs and providing gifts to patients to help nurture and lift their spirits. Gardeners for Hope (GFH) was established over a decade ago in honor of an East Carolina University employee who died of breast cancer. The organization assists women financially by paying their rent, electric, and water bills as well as covering the costs of medical services and medications. Our loyal customers can also use the promo code PINK5 to receive $5 off their purchase. It is our goal at Sprightly CBD to help in the fight against breast cancer, especially those suffering within our local community.
If you would like to donate to Gardeners for Hope, we encourage you to do so locally at The Painted Peacock in Greenville, NC! A few items they are in need of include:
- Gas Gift Cards
- Dove Sensitive Skin Body Wash
- Aquaphor Lotion
- Individually Wrapped Snacks
- Adult Coloring Books
- Crossword Puzzles
- Pens and Pencils
- Colored Pencils
Here are a few other ways that you can spread awareness for breast cancer:
- Wear pink: Participate in the national initiative to wear pink for breast cancer on the 18th of October.
- Help a cancer patient: Find a way to make their life easier. Rather than asking how you can help, tell them how you plan to.
- Educate yourself and others: Talk about family history and preventative measures that can be taken, like self-checking for abnormalities and mammograms.
- Know your risk: You have a 12% relative risk for breast cancer just by being a woman. Take this Breast Cancer Risk Quiz to learn more about your personal risk.
- Share your story: Whether it’s about you or someone dear to your heart!
