Let's Stand Up To Cancer!
Since 1975, childhood cancers have increased by 20%.
1 in 2 Men, and 1 in 3 Women will develop cancer in their lifetime.
Today, 1 in 8 women will be diagnosed with breast cancer. 40 years ago that stat was 1 in 20. Of the women today who are diagnosed with breast cancer, 90% do not have a mutation in the BRCA gene, the gene most commonly associated with breast cancer - so this dramatic increase isn't solely based on an increase in early detection.
More than 85,000 chemicals have been introduced into commerce since World War II and almost 90 percent of those ingredients have never been tested for safety on human health. In North America, it is perfectly legal for companies to use harmful ingredients linked to cancer in the products we use on our skin every single day.
Beautycounter’s mission is to GET SAFE PRODUCTS INTO THE HANDS OF EVERYONE. We deliver on our mission in three important ways: through our beautiful high performing products, education, and by advocating for more laws protecting health. This campaign with SU2C is an example of our mission in action. We believe that preventing exposure to potentially harmful ingredients in the products we use every day is imperative for the health and safety of ourselves and our families. For too long, cancer has been the leading cause of death in Canada. It’s time to stop cancer in its tracks. STAND UP TO CANCER’S MISSION is to RAISE FUNDS to ACCELERATE THE PACE OF GROUNDBREAKING TRANSLATIONAL RESEARCH that can get NEW THERAPIES TO PATIENTS QUICKLY AND SAVE LIVES NOW.
