In honor of National Breast Cancer Awareness Month, an edgy new stationery company, Foxy Blunt, developed a card that gives friends, families and caregivers of young women battling breast cancer a new tool-- an opportunity to share a moment of strength and humor with their affected loved ones.
If you've ever experienced a loved one suffering from any form of cancer, it's often hard to find the right words to tell them how you feel. For some people, "Thinking of You.... as you bitch-slap cancer" might convey just the right sentiment. The artwork created for the card reflects the talented and highly stylish design approach by Foxy Blunt's founders, Jennifer Morrison and Danielle Caro.
It's a little known fact that every year, approximately 11,000 women in the US are diagnosed with breast cancer at the age of 40 or under. In fact, breast cancer accounts for 26 percent of all cancer in females 15-39 years of age and 39 percent of all cancer in 35-39 year olds.1 However, most research is focused on post- menopausal women, with pre-menopausal women --particularly those in their 20s and 30s -- dramatically under-represented.
Foxy Blunt and the Young Survival Coalition recently formed a partnership where the central goal is to raise awareness of young women battling breast cancer through the use of a bold greeting card. The new cancer card is blank inside, and retails for $4.95, with 50% of the proceeds going directly to Young Survival Coalition. It is available for purchase online at www.foxyblunt.com.
