This October, in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, we're joining Tieks and the American Cancer Society by wearing our pink to show our support for spreading breast cancer awareness.

Tieks was kind enough to send us a pair of their pretty Ballerina Pink flats and they're a great reminder to tell every woman we possibly can how important early detection is! It is vital for us ladies to be vigilant about getting regular checkups and mammograms.

Breast Cancer Facts

Just take a look at these startling breast cancer statistics:

  • In the U.S., 1 in 8 women will be diagnosed with breast cancer in their lifetime.
  • Every 19 seconds, someone in the world is diagnosed with breast cancer.
  • Every 15 minutes, a woman dies of breast cancer in the U.S.
  • When breast cancer is detected early in the localized stage, the 5 year survival rate is over 95%.
  • It has been estimated that if every woman over the age of 50 had her yearly mammogram, breast cancer deaths in this age group would drop by 25% or more.
