Breast Cancer Awareness month is much more than an excuse to wear pink. This month draws attention to a disease that affects one in eight women in the United States with an estimation of over 265,000 new cases of cancer in 2019 alone.
Companies and brands across the country focus their attention on the issue during the month of October, bringing consideration toward the high rate of diagnosis. Though the disease alone impacts under 300,000 new individuals per year, breast cancer can be destructive to an entire community.
TODAY style editor Bobbie Thomas visited our anchors to show them how you can give back by shopping at the same stores you know and love.
These ones in particular, donate a significant amount to the diagnosis and research of breast cancer, support of those involved and access to information around the disease.
