Did you know that a woman’s risk of breast cancer triples from her thirties to her forties, and quintuples from her thirties to fifties? In the U.S. alone, nearly 100,000 women between the ages of 45 and 64 are diagnosed with breast cancer annually, many of them are concurrently experiencing menopause. Can you imagine adding the emotional and physical stress of breast cancer to the already emotionally and physically stressful changes of menopause? I can’t!
October is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month, and the makers of Estroven, a safe multi-symptom menopause relief solution, is supporting the Avon Walk for Breast Cancer, a project of the Avon Foundation for Women to support those impacted, while raising awareness and funds for breast cancer research and prevention. Estroven is inviting women all over the nation to get together and show their support and help raise funds for breast cancer research by “Sleeping Pink” and throwing pink pajama parties. They developed the website, http://sleeppink.com/ , to provide the digital tools to help them organize Sleep Pink pajama parties and help raise awareness of the important issues that women are facing. SleepPink.com will include downloadable invitations, recipes, and more.
Estroven has committed to donate $250 to the Avon Walk for Breast Cancer every time someone uploads a #SleepPink photo to their Sleep Pink Facebook page through the end of October (one donation per photo/party)?
My girlfriends and I love a good reason to get together! We’re all in the early child-rearing phase of our life (our children range in age from 6 months to 10 years) and haven’t yet reached the peri-menopausal or menopausal stage. That being said, it is good to know that when we do get there, Estroven has our back.
Estroven is naturally sourced and is chosen by nearly 1 million women annually because it goes beyond the relief of menopausal symptoms of hot flashes and night sweats to relieve other bothersome symptom, i.e., irritability, sleep, energy, memory and concentration issues and weight issues. Estroven is the leading dietary supplement brand that addresses the symptoms of menopause. Only Estroven has a full line of products that provide safe, multi-symptom menopause relief so women can feel like themselves again.
The Avon Walk for Breast Cancer series is a project of the Avon Foundation for Women. Since 2003, when it launched, the Avon Walk for Breast Cancer has successfully raised more than $423 million, with nearly 160,000 men and women participating across the country. The Avon Walk for Breast Cancer takes place in nice cities. The funds raised through the Avon Walk for Breast Cancer goes to support five areas of the breast cancer cause: awareness and education, screening and diagnosis, access to treatment, support services and scientific research.
Look for specially marked packages of Estroven in the Sleep Pink retail displays at Walgreens stores nationwide.
