Beauty Products Against Cancer by Michela Marra
Hi Pretty Birds,
As you already know, October is dedicated to the fight against breast cancer. BCA (Breast Cancer Awareness) is the universal symbol in the campaign, as desired by Evelyn H. Lauder in 1922, in order to raise awareness among women regarding the importance of prevention and to support research. For 24 years now, October is the month of the BCA Campaign that unites women and men from all over the world to spread information and awareness and to raise funds. To that end, Estée Lauder and all of its brands, along with other cosmetics companies, have decided to donate a part of the money they earn from the sale of some of their products to research in the fight against cancer and to support women who’ve been diagnosed with the disease.
