National Breast Cancer Awareness Month

Originating over 25 years ago, Breast Cancer Awareness Month, also referred to in America as National Breast Cancer Awareness Month (NBCAM), is an annual international health campaign organized by major breast cancer charities every October to increase awareness of the disease and to raise funds for research into its cause, prevention, diagnosis, treatment and cure. The campaign also offers information and support to those affected by breast cancer. The aim of the NBCAM from the start has been to promote mammography as the most effective weapon in the fight against breast cancer.


In 1991, the Susan G. Koman Foundation handed out pink ribbons to participants in its New York City race for breast cancer survivors. However, it was not established as its symbol until 1993 when Evelyn Lauder, Senior Vice President of the Estee Lauder Companies founded The Breast Cancer Research Foundation. Inspiration for the NBCAM foundation came from AstraZeneca Inc in 1989 when they began a breast cancer screening program withing their company.


Cancer in any form is a concern.
Our thoughts go out to those who rise to the battle every day,
and to family members and caretakers who stand beside them.

Cliptomania.com is offering beautiful pink crystal Ribbon non-pierced earrings as part of this awareness. Ten percent (10%) of the total sales matched twice - by Candy & Jim Santo and by their daughter, Christy Santo, Owners of Cliptomania - and given to Jill's House, a local, non-profit agency. Jill's House is dedicated to those undergoing cancer treatment, their family or caregiver(s) with low cost living accommodations while receiving treatment from a local facility. We believe there are many facets in the battle to fight cancer. We hope you will help us in this endeavor and show your support!
