As we all know, October is Breast Cancer Awareness month, and something we all need to be actively aware of. In 2012, 226,870 new cases of breast cancer have developed and 39,510 women have died due to breast cancer. Breast cancer is the second most common cancer in women in the US next to skin cancer and is now the second leading cause of cancer death, the first being lung cancer. Our statistics as women shows that we have a one in eight chance of having breast cancer in our life time. (www.cancer.org) That's quite a high number. Think of yourself and seven of your girl friends. One of you is likely to be diagnosed with breast cancer in her life.
The Positive: Thanks to organizations such as Look Good Feel Better, there are now 2.9 million breast cancer survivors in the US, and that number continues to improve. That's huge!
Look Good Feel Better's Mission: Look Good Feel Better is dedicated to improving the self-esteem and quality of life of people undergoing treatment for cancer. It is our aim to improve their self-image and appearance through complimentary group, individual, and self-help beauty sessions that create a sense of support, confidence, courage, and community.
Philosophy has now launched a line specifically to benefit LGFB. It includes a special message on the packaging, "No matter how rough the road, may it be a graceful journey." I think this is such a great idea, and amazing of Philosophy, since 100% of the proceeds will benefit LGFB.
The Philosophy "Graceful Journey" line features pure grace shampoo, bath and shower gel, and cards with inspriational words and thoughts for each day of the week. Each product is simply packaged (But still gorgeous) and has a nice clean scent, perfect for those who are undergoing treatment as they may be sensitive to scents. Each product would make a lovely gift to inspire someone who has cancer or just lift their spirits.
