Breast Cancer Awareness Month
Breast Cancer Awareness Month – October 2014
October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, which is an annual campaign 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.
Statistics show that breast cancer is the most common cancer in South Africa and bears a 1:35 lifetime risk to every woman. While most people are aware of breast cancer, many neglect to take preventative steps to ensure a good healthy lifestyle.
This year Annique in collaboration with breast cancer survivors will present an Breat Cancer Awareness programme during October which will be focussed on preventative steps but also to assist cancer patients undergoing chemo. Most important is that every woman who participates is empowered by the information which will allow her to share the knowledge with her family, friends and colleagues.
All Annique products contain Rooibos which assist the prevention of cancer. The flavonoids in Rooibos work as antioxidants - a major protagonist in preventing cancer, as well as in slowing down its progress. Research found that a major cause of cancer is damage of the genetic material. The rising level of glutathione associated with Rooibos tea could prevent genetic damages from happening. Due to a polyphenic-rich extract in Rooibos, this indicates potential for use in cosmeceuticals for sun protection and as part of a strategy for preventing non-melanoma skin cancers in humans.
We are passionate in offering people life-changing opportunities to use our product as testified by Lizelle Knott who is our most recent cancer survivor using Annique products – http://www.aboardbeauty.co.za/page/news
We would therefore like to offer to present an Annique Cancer awareness session for the ladies in your office.
