Bernat® Knit and Crochet for Breast Cancer
Breast cancer is a serious concern for each and every one of us. An estimated 192,370 new cases of invasive breast cancer are expected to occur among women in the U.S. during 2009.(1) Keeping yourself educated and healthy is an important first step in reducing your risk of breast cancer. This Breast Self-Awareness reference from Susan G. Komen for the Cure® is an excellent resource. If you have any questions or concerns about your health, don't hesitate to ask your doctor. Affecting the lives of women and men globally, breast cancer not only impacts the individuals living with the disease, but their families, friends, and loved ones as well. It is possible to do something about breast cancer.
It is important to recognize the heroism of so many men and women who have fought breast cancer. One of the best ways we can recognize and honor their fight is to work towards a cure. It's up to each and every one of us to make a difference.
|As knitters and crocheters, there is a way we can do what we love and make a difference at the same time - Bernat® is proud to introduce the Knit & Crochet for Breast Cancer collection, available at participating ACMoore, JoAnns, Michaels, Walmart Canada and Zellers – while quantities last. Bernat® is contributing $10,000 to Susan G. Komen for the Cure® through the purchase of the yarn in the Knit & Crochet for Breast Cancer collection from August 15 - November 15, 2009. For more information about Susan G. Komen for the Cure®, breast health or breast cancer, visit www.komen.org or call 1-877 GO KOMEN. A portion of the Bernat® contribution will be directed to the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation.|
