October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, an annual campaign to increase awareness of the disease. Breast cancer is the second most common cancer in women and men worldwide — in 2012, it represented about 12 percent of all new cancer cases and 25 percent of all cancers in women — so almost all of you are affected by breast cancer either directly or through someone you care about.
Throughout the month of October, Lion Brand Yarn Company will donate 20% of the purchase price of a selection of pink yarns (see below) and our Knit for Life and Crochet for a Cause Kits to The Breast Cancer Research Foundation®, while supplies last. BCRF’s mission is to advance the world’s most promising research to eradicate breast cancer in our lifetime. For more information about BCRF, please visit bcrfcure.org.
You can help make a difference!
