Each year, thousands of Canadians are touched by breast cancer. It not only impacts the individuals living with the disease, but their families, friends and loved ones as well. It is hard not to be affected by breast cancer in one way or another, and even men are not immune to this.
Fundraising is a crucial activity if we are to find a cure. There are many ways you can get involved:
Dominion Blueline has contributed over $700,000 to the Foundation through the sale of their Pink Ribbon products since the program's inception in 2007. And most of them are made in Canada!
Limited-edition Pink Cashmere, beautifully embossed with a touch of Pink, with twenty-five cents from the sale of every package going directly to the Foundation throughout October, Breast Cancer Awareness Month with a maximum contribution of $50,000. Canadian-made.
You can also vote for your favourite gown made entirely of Cashmere bathroom tissue on their Facebook page. They will donate $1 for each vote, PLUS you could win some cool prizes!

All women of any age need to be aware. Become Breast Aware with these 5 simple steps.
