What is “Breast Cancer Awareness Month”?

“Today breast cancer affects 1 woman out of 8.”

Previously known as “Breast Cancer, Let’s Talk About It!”, Pink October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month and was initiated in the early 90s by Evelyn Lauder.This led to the creation of the Breast Cancer Research Foundation.

The campaign started in France in 1994 thanks to the Ester Lauder Companies France brand and the French magazine Marie Claire.

The association Ruban Rose was created later, in 2003. Today they share information, talk about the disease and raise awareness about the fight against breast cancer.
