National Breast Cancer Awareness Month

    October is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Did you know that a woman’s risk actually triples from her 30s to her 40s and quintuples from her 30s to her 50s? Every year in the United States 100,000 women between the ages of 45 and 64 are diagnosed with breast cancer. Many of these women are experiencing menopause at the same time–one-third of the female population in the US (35 million) have currently reached menopause.

    Estroven has teamed up with the Avon Foundation for Women to support the Avon Walk for Breast Cancer and raise awareness for two very important women’s issues: breast cancer and menopause. They’ve created the Sleep Pink campaign to help spread the word and I am happy to have participated!

    What is Sleep Pink?

    An initiative to raise awareness for both breast cancer and menopause. Host a “Sleep Pink” pajama party with some friends and for EVERY PHOTO uploaded to the Sleep Pink Facebook Page, Estroven will donate $250 to the Avon Walk for Breast Cancer! Amazing, right?! You just have to upload a picture! It couldn’t be easier. AND they’ve even created a Party Page on the Sleep Pink website where you can download invites to send to your friends, get decor ideas, and find menopause-friendly drink and food recipes.
