Breast cancer awareness has always been something we at Underground Printing care deeply about. UGP has always been passionate about helping people get the custom apparel they need and it’s even more enjoyable for us to know we also help raise awareness for important causes. October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month and we are already thrilled to be printing tons of pink apparel and designs in support of those affected by breast cancer.
In the U.S., about one in eight women (about 13%) will develop invasive breast cancer, and roughly 287,850 new cases are expected to be diagnosed in 2022. There is also estimated to be 51,400 new cases of non-invasive breast cancer to be diagnosed this year. While breast cancer is more common in women, there are still expected to be about 2,710 cases of invasive breast cancer to be diagnosed in men in 2021. Breast cancer is also the second-most common cancer among women in the U.S., and second-most fatal. Since 1985, National Breast Cancer Awareness Month has been founded, helping raise awareness for all those affected by this serious illness.
There are over 3.8 million survivors of breast cancer in the U.S., and we hope to one day see a cure. Whether it’s a walkathon, any other sort of physical activity, or showing support with a pink ribbon pin, there are many ways to get involved with helping to raise awareness and finding a cure for breast cancer. There are many ways to help raise funds for Breast Cancer Awareness. Most communities have their own efforts that you or your business could partake in! Even without community efforts, there’s tons of ways you can contribute to this great cause. Some ideas would be holding raffles, auctions, races, and partnerships! Whatever your event may be, we’re here to help you create the perfect custom pink t-shirt to show your support.
With October being Breast Cancer Awareness month, there’s no better time to take action in your community to help raise awareness and funds. The possibilities are endless when it comes to getting involved with this great cause from wearing pink in support to hosting events. You can find inspirational ideas online through websites such as Total Wellness and more!
