Breast cancer is the second most common type of cancer among women so, chances are, you know someone who has been affected by it. The entire month of October is dedicated to raising awareness and encouraging women to do self-checks or schedule their mammograms—early detection is paramount.
This month is also a time that many companies and organization work together with customers to raise funds for breast cancer research.
If you're not sure where to give this month, here are some products that are donating percentages of proceeds directly to research.
