An official Pink Ribbon plate allows you to show your support all year round
Austin, Texas (PRWEB) October 01, 2016
Most people nowadays are aware that October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month and as a result, we see a lot of Pink Ribbons displayed during this time of year.
Unfortunately, the risks and impact of breast cancer are not limited to a single month of the year. Breast Cancer doesn’t discriminate: it is a disease that can and does strike at any time, and effects people regardless of race or gender.
An estimated 246,660 new cases of invasive breast cancer are expected to be diagnosed in women in the U.S., along with 61,000 new cases of non-invasive (in situ) breast cancer. About 1 in 8 U.S. women (about 12%) will develop invasive breast cancer over the course of her lifetime. In men, it is estimated that about 2,600 new cases of invasive breast cancer are expected to be diagnosed in 2016. (Source:breastcancer.org)
Over six years ago, in May 2010, My Plates launched the very first official Breast Cancer Pink Ribbon license plate in Texas. Since then, a portion of the proceeds from the sale of every Pink Ribbon plate sold supports the National Breast Cancer Foundation headquartered in Frisco, Texas. By purchasing one of these plates, you not only support the fight against this disease from a monetary sense, but you also support it by promoting the Pink Ribbon not just in October, but 24/7, 365 days a year.
During Breast Cancer Awareness Month, My Plates will donate $10 to the National Breast Cancer Foundation for every “Pink” plate sold, which includes two official Pink Ribbon plate designs, plus four other pink-themed plates.
While sales of all pink-themed My Plates designs will generate a positive donation in October, My Plates encourages the purchase of an official Pink Ribbon plate. “A Pink Ribbon license plate not only brings awareness to Breast Cancer but it helps us show support and strength for Breast Cancer survivors, patients and their families all year round” said Steve Farrar, President of My Plates.
The official Pink Ribbon plates in Texas can be purchased directly online at MyPlates.com.
