As the month dedicated to raising Breast Cancer Awareness is getting close, Brookstone, a specialty retailer of gifts operating over 300 stores in the US, will donate 20 per cent of its October sales on three personal items to the Breast Cancer Network of Strength. The Breast Cancer Network of Strength is an organization that helps breast cancer patients in their journey against breast cancer. From the organization’s point of view and main starting point, no woman should face breast cancer on her own. This is where the Breast Cancer Network of Strength comes in to support women and offer resources and information to fight against breast cancer.
The Breast Cancer Network of Strength has a 24/7 support center and the lines at the support center are only answered by cancer breast survivors. The organization doesn’t only help US citizens or native English speakers as it also has interpreters for 150 languages spoken all across the globe. Brookstone CEO, Ron Boire, said that the company is proud to help the Breast Cancer Network of Strength since the organization ‘does a lot of great work providing resources and emotional support to women when it’s most needed, and once again we’re eager to join them in the fight against breast cancer.’
Back in 2009, Brookstone donated over $19,000 to the Breast Cancer Network of Strength and supported its cause.
