Suppor Breast Cancer Awareness Month With VienneMilano
At VienneMilano, we want every woman to feel as empowered as she is beautiful.
Through our stockings, we aim to help her take on the world in style, ready to strut through whatever life brings to her door.
This year, in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness, we want to stand alongside those whose lives have been affected by breast cancer. As the most common form of cancer suffered by women, we know that many of our customers will have had or known someone who has suffered from its life-changing effects - we want you to know you are not alone.
So, we plan to help you make more than just a fashion statement. From October to Decemeber, we are donating 10% of the proceeds from the sales of our lovely PRISCILLA Rose Pink Lace Top Band in Hazelnut to Breast Cancer Research Foundation, contributing directly to life-saving research and care for women who have breast cancer.
For me, Vienne, the owner of VienneMilano, the cause of Breast Cancer awareness is one I hold close to my heart. My family has a strong history of breast cancer that runs through the women in my family. As a child, I knew my aunts had health issues, but I was sheltered from the full extent of the situation. Many of the women in my family survived breast cancer, some more than once, while others were not so fortunate. As I grew, and as my chances of developing breast cancer grew alongside me, my family gradually spoke to me more about the situation, ensuring I would understand the gravity of having a family history of breast cancer.
Every day, across America, 723 women are told they have breast cancer – that’s 264,000 women every year and 264,000 too much as far as we’re concerned.
Charities for Breast Cancer Awareness and research funding have helped create advances in the diagnosis and treatment of breast cancer. As a result, breast cancer survival rates have increased.
