Frank Body is supporting breast cancer awareness for the month of September, and here's how you can take part
During the month of September, the skin care brand Frank Body will be donating proceeds towards a great cause. For their September campaign, Frank Body will support Pink Hope by donating proceeds all month long, and by raising breast and ovarian cancer awareness. For those unfamiliar, Pink Hope is a charity dedicated to educating women and helping detect and prevent breast cancer as well as ovarian cancer.
A press email sent to HelloGiggles shares some of the inspiration behind the campaign.
Jess Hatzis even penned a blog post on the website explaining the campaign to followers while emphasizing how important it is to regularly get checked for cancer.
The blog post features two sisters, Melanie and Karni. After their mom was diagnosed with ovarian cancer, they got tested and discovered they carried the BRCA1 gene mutation, meaning they have a high risk of getting it. Earlier this year, Karni was diagnosed with early stage breast cancer, and thanks to regular health checks, she was able to treat the cancer.
