A Breast Cancer Awareness Beard


In honor of Breast Cancer Awareness month this October, I asked Beard of the Month's Mr. January, Garey AKA Misled Cincinnati to create a beard for this cause. Women AND MEN are fighting this disease everyday. Let's keep spreading awareness until we find a cure! Check out this AMAZING pink ribbon beard!

Oh, and did you know?

Breast cancer is the most common cancer among American women, except for skin cancers. About 1 in 8 (12%) women in the US will develop invasive breast cancer during their lifetime.

The American Cancer Society's most recent estimates for breast cancer in the United States are for 2012:

  • About 226,870 new cases of invasive breast cancer will be diagnosed in women.
  • About 63,300 new cases of carcinoma in situ (CIS) will be diagnosed (CIS is non-invasive and is the earliest form of breast cancer).
  • About 39,510 women will die from breast cancer

Save the Ta-Ta's. If you want to help the cause, you can donate here.
