As stated in the previous blog post, October is full of national holidays. But most importantly, October has been THE month for Breast Cancer Awareness, an abnormal disease that can occur in any woman’s life.
- About 231,840 new cases of invasive breast cancer will be diagnosed in women.
- About 60,290 new cases of carcinoma in situ (CIS) will be diagnosed (CIS is non-invasive and is the earliest form of breast cancer).
- About 40,290 women will die from breast cancer
Breast Cancer has been increasing up to 20% worldwide since 2008, being the second leading cause of death in woman, standing behind Lung Cancer.
I’m sure we have all had someone we know that has either won, lost, or are still battling the fight to Breast Cancer. With forgoing fundraisers for research towards this disease, and new technologies, we have been lucky enough to detect early signs of malignant tumors. Unfortunately the removal of these tumors isn’t always a solution for they can always come back.
In light of Breast Cancer Awareness Month we wanted to do our part to fighting this disease. All month long with any purchase of a Ludi’s Macaron, Raspberry Macaron, or a Bavarois, a percentage of proceeds will go to support the funding in fighting Breast Cancer!
Please help us support woman fighting Breast Cancer all around the world by buying a dessert pastry to fight your sweet tooth craving!
