-- National Breast Cancer Awareness Month (NBCAM) is an annual international health campaign organized by major breast cancer charities, every October, to increase awareness of the disease and to raise funds for research into its cause, prevention, diagnosis, treatment and cure. The campaign also offers information and support to those affected by breast cancer.
NBCAM was founded in 1985 as a partnership between the American Cancer Society and the pharmaceutical division of Imperial Chemical Industries. In 1993 The Breast Cancer Research Foundation established the pink ribbon as its symbol, though this was not the first time the ribbon was used to symbolize breast cancer. In the fall of 1991, the Susan G. Komen Foundation had handed out pink ribbons to participants in its New York City race for breast cancer survivors.
Reputation Impression is doing its part to support this campaign for the cure in the month of October. Our entire staff is making donations to the San Diego Susan G. Komen Foundation in efforts to make a difference in people’s lives that are affected with this disease. On Friday October 12th Reputation Impression will be wearing pink to show our support to this admirable cause. Please join us to support this cause and find the cure. “I AM THE CURE”
