When someone is diagnosed with breast cancer, it affects every member of their family—including their four-legged companions. At Nylabone, we want to give our dogs an opportunity to raise awareness for this important cause, too. That’s why we are proud to partner with National Breast Cancer Foundation, Inc.® (NBCF) to offer a custom-made Power Chew toy in pink—the universal color for breast cancer awareness. For every one of these special chew toys purchased, $1 will be donated to NBCF and their mission to provide help and inspire hope to those affected by breast cancer.
It’s estimated that one woman will be diagnosed with breast cancer every two minutes in the United States*. With so many of our family members, friends, and fellow pet parents affected, we are dedicated to joining every hand and paw in the effort to show support for every person that breast cancer touches.
In recognition of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, our custom-made chew toy will be available starting October 1st, 2019.
Together, we “chews” hope.
NBCF’s mission is to help women now by providing help and inspiring hope to those affected by breast cancer through early detection, education, and support services.
Breast cancer is one of the leading health crises for women in the United States. One in eight women will be diagnosed with breast cancer in her lifetime. There is currently no known cure for breast cancer, and its early diagnosis is critical to survival.
However, with increased healthcare costs and a rapidly increasing percentage of uninsured women, many simply cannot afford the cost of screening tests. These women are at a significantly higher risk of dying from breast cancer if later diagnosed.
That’s why NBCF provides free mammograms to women across the United States through their network of hospitals. NBCF is now joining hands with people around the world to provide breast cancer education.
