Think of your 8 closest girl friends – now think about how you would feel if one of them or you heard the diagnosis Breast Cancer. Well in Canada that is exactly what happens every day 1 in 9 women will be diagnosed with Breast Cancer in their lifetime.
In my “day job” (you know the times I actually get dressed into business wear and try to keep sticky toddler hands off my pants before I run out the door) I work in the healthcare sector. Specifically in Oncology research, and I see on a daily basis the difference cancer research makes in the lives of patients through more treatment options, better outcomes, and improved quality of life. Yes a cancer diagnosis is scary for anyone, but there is HOPE thanks to years of research to improve screening, detection and treatment of Breast Cancer.
I am proud to announce that Tic Tac Canada is supporting Breast Cancer Research in Canada by making a $25,000 donation to the Breast Cancer Society of Canada and by helping raise awareness about breast cancer by releasing a new limited edition Strawberry Fusion Flavoured Tic Tac and a Tic Tac character to represent the new flavour. These specially marked boxes of Tic Tacs can be found in stores now.
So remember to do your monthly Breast Self Exam, and think PINK this October!
