|Lilies For Hope Bouquet|
October is Breast Cancer Awareness month. In Canada, breast cancer is the most common type of cancer among women. In 2014, an estimated 24,400 Canadian women will be diagnosed with breast cancer and 5,000 will die from it. One in nine women is expected to develop breast cancer during her lifetime (by age 90) and 1 in 29 will die from it. Men are also diagnosed: it is expected that 210 men will be diagnosed with breast cancer and 60 will die from it (statistics courtesy of the Breast Cancer Society of Canada).
The good news is that research is leading to better outcomes. Thanks to improvements in screening, detection and treatment the five year survival rate for men is 80%, and for women it is 88%. Every dollar raised makes a difference.
Bloomex is proud to support the research and care initiative by creating a special Pink Ribbon Collection. The collection consists of four bouquets of varied pink flowers: Shades of Pink Ribbon, Lilies for Hope, Fresh Lilies, and Pink Passion. A portion of the proceeds from each sale (from $2 to $5 depending on your selection) of these bouquets will go directly to the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation. Bloomex is hoping that with public support the company can provide a significant contribution toward helping those with breast cancer. Thank you for your support!
