October marks Breast Cancer Awareness Month (BCAM) – an annual international health campaign designed to increase awareness of the disease and to raise funds into its cause, prevention, diagnosis, treatment, and cure.
Multiple beauty brands participate in BCAM by releasing limited-edition, pink-themed products that support the campaign, alongside contributing to charities such as Breast Cancer Network Australia, Look Good Feel Better® and the National Breast Cancer Foundation (NBCF).
The NBCF is Australia’s leading national body funding world-class, game-changing breast cancer research. With eight women who lose their life every day to breast cancer, it is the foundation's mission to stop deaths from breast cancer by 2030.
