Shop Pink in Support of Breast Cancer Awareness Month
October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Breast cancer accounts for one out of every three cancer diagnoses in America. In 2017, an estimated 252,710 new cases of invasive breast cancer are expected to be diagnosed in women in the U.S. About 1 in 8 U.S. women (about 12%) will develop invasive breast cancer over the course of her lifetime. About 40,610 women in the U.S. are expected to die in 2017 from breast cancer, though death rates have been decreasing since 1989.
Research has been the key to dramatic improvements in prevention, early detection, treatment and survivorship. Clinical treatment advances in radiation and surgery, as well as chemotherapies such as Tamoxifen, Herceptin all have been assisted through research selected and funded by the American Cancer Society.
These research efforts can continue only with new and increased support.
To commemorate the battle for life of one special person, Pearl Kole, her sons Danny and Rob launched, with personal gifts, The Pearl Endowment for Cancer Research. Pearl Kole was a teacher and businesswoman who raised four children, and with her husband Art, helped two of her sons, Danny and Rob, build their business, Kole Imports, Inc.
Joining with the American Cancer Society, the world’s largest and most experienced private funder of cancer research, The Pearl Endowment will help eliminate the threat of breast cancer for future generations. Each year, income from The Pearl Endowment will be used to fund the highest priority breast cancer research, which will be selected by the American Cancer Society.
