Many of us are directly or indirectly affected by breast cancer; more than 200,000 women in the U.S. get breast cancer each year, and more than 40,000 women die from the disease.
While it can’t be prevented, people can reduce their chance of getting breast cancer. To show our support of those struggling with the disease and encourage everyone to become familiar with The Center for Disease Control and Prevention’s recommendations, we will give away pink device chargers to all who attend Ideate classroom training sessions during the month of October, which is Breast Cancer Awareness Month.
Why pink? In 1991, Komen New York City Race for the Cure® distributed pink ribbons to all breast cancer survivors and participants. Today pink is used across industries to bring awareness to breast cancer and show support for breast cancer patients, survivors, and their family and friends.
