As a valued member of the Avon Breast Cancer Crusade family, we are thrilled to let you know about the next phase in Avon’s commitment to breast health. Avon is teaming up with the American Cancer Society, becoming the first ever National Presenting Sponsor for American Cancer Society Making Strides Against Breast Cancer events.For over 130 years, Avon has inspired the financial independence, health, and well-being of women and their families – and the fight against breast cancer has been central to our mission. Since the launch of the Avon Breast Cancer Crusade in 1992, people like you have helped contribute over $800 million to breast cancer causes, impacting millions of women. For that we thank you.
The American Cancer Society attacks cancer from every angle by investing in ground-breaking research, providing patient support, offering information & education, and mobilizing communities. The American Cancer Society invests more in breast cancer research than any other cancer and has played a role in nearly every major breast cancer breakthrough in recent history. With walks in over 200 cities and towns, Making Strides Against Breast Cancer has raised more than $870 million for the fight against breast cancer.
