16 years ago this month, Evelyn Lauder created the Pink Ribbon, founded the Breast Cancer Research Foundation and masterminded Breast Cancer Awareness month. Statistics show that one in nine women in the UK will be diagnosed with breast cancer making it an important charity for women to support. As well as wearing your pink ribbon this October to support Breast Cancer Awareness Month there are plenty of special edition beauty products on sale with proceeds going to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation for its breast cancer research at the Royal Marsden Institute of Cancer Research in the UK and the Future Dreams charity.
