A shocking one in seven women will develop breast cancer in their lifetime. Each year, around 55,000 women are diagnosed with breast cancer in the UK alone. 30 years ago Mrs Evelyn Lauder, of Estée Lauder, co-created the iconic pink ribbon and launched the Breast Cancer Campaign with a mission to create a breast cancer-free world. Although we have a long, long way to go in eradicating this cancer, through vital research and education as well as raising funds for prevention programmes, support, and medical services for breast cancer communities and beyond, we can make a difference together to #TimeToEndBreastCancer.
