3 Fashionable Items That Help Breast Cancer Research

We all know October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. According to the CDC, aside from non-melanoma skin cancer, breast cancer is the most common cancer in women, and the National Cancer Institute estimates that one in eight women will be diagnosed in their lifetime.  

Here's how you can help by doing what you do best.  Shop!


These fab beauty and fashion items that donate part or all proceeds from sales to help fund breast cancer research:




This October, Fergie and her Fergie Footwear brand are joining the fight against breast cancer. The Hope shoe, from Fergie’s Fall 2010 collection, will be available during the QVC presents “FFANY Shoes on Sale” event benefiting breast cancer research on October 15th. It retails for $45 (half its original retail price) and 100% of the net proceeds go to breast cancer research.


More deeply-discounted designer shoes will also be for sale. To date, “Shoes on Sale” has sold more than one million pairs of shoes and donated more than $32.5 million in net proceeds to breast cancer research.


The Avon Foundation for Women Campaign launched a new crusade with Reese Witherspoon to “Kiss Goodbye to Breast Cancer” during the month of October. As a new symbol of empowerment, Avon and Reese unveiled the Lips of Life tote to give the quest a little lip service.  So pick up your cute tote for only $5 – with 100% of the net profits ($3.74) going to support the Avon Breast Cancer Crusade.




Beauty For Real will donate 10% of proceeds from their Light Heart Lip Gloss to the Taylor Breast Health Center at Jackson Memorial Hospital. The gloss is $22 and available online.
