Breast cancer is the most common cancer in women world-wide. According to the World Health Organization, there are about 2.1 million new cases each year, and 627,000 deaths from breast cancer around the world every year.
With the arrival of October and Breast Cancer Awareness Month, we’re joining the worldwide annual effort to increase awareness and funding for breast cancer research. The mission to help those affected with breast cancer through early detection, support services and education is personal to the Wind River Chimes family.
You can help in the efforts of raising awareness and saving lives with the purchase of a For The Girls® pink wind chime. With the sale of every pink chime, we give up to 50% to charities that support breast cancer awareness, research and the patients it affects.
The chimes are to honor those who have had breast cancer, and those who have walked beside them. They’re a great gift to a survivor, or to remember someone who was lost to the disease. The soothing tones of these high-quality chimes can ring solace for those remembering a loved one, bring hope and encouragement for those in the battle, or sing a victory song to survivors.
Take a peek at our special For the Girls chimes, and consider making a purchase that will help the recipient, as well as many others who are affected by this cancer. For more information, visit the Breast Cancer Research Foundation and the Joy to Life Foundation, two of the charities we support.
