Breast Cancer Resources and Awareness


October is Breast Cancer Awareness month and Velvet Cartel would like to hook you up with all the best resources for screening and making donations to finding a cure. Breast cancer awareness and the search for a cure have always been close to our hearts at Velvet Cartel. Beaux Jackson, an owner of the company, has strived to create and maintain client/sponsor relationships with Breast Cancer Resource Centers and Susan G Komen. Annually, he produces the Physiq fitness fashion show to benefit the cause. Much of this is done in celebration and honor of his mother's success in beating cancer almost five years ago. Though nearly 13% of women will be diagnosed with breast cancer sometime in their lifetime, an early diagnosis can make a big difference in the effectiveness of treatments. The best way to catch cancer and protect your health is by having regular screenings. Austin has SO MANY wonderful and inexpensive options to help you do this. Organizations like Breast Cancer Resource Centers of Texas and Planned Parenthood are currently funded to provide free mammography services in the Central Texas area. The American Cancer Society and offer yearly screening reminders. You can even send a reminder to a loved one from MammoSite. To get involved with giving or receiving support or to make donations, visit the Susan G Komen website or the Susan G Komen of Austin Facebook page for daily updates.
