Change lives by helping us support the Breast Cancer Research Foundation

Do you know someone diagnosed with breast cancer? Chances are you do. An estimated 268,600 cases of invasive breast cancer were diagnosed among women and 2,670 cases among men in the U.S. last year, according to the American Cancer Society.

Breast cancer impacts everyone, not just the person diagnosed with the disease. Loved ones offer direct care, colleagues offer support in the workplace and neighbors work together to lend the family a helping hand.

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month and we at Boxxy Gifts have chosen the Breast Cancer Research Foundation (BCRF) as our next recipient through our Make an Impact initiative.

Research is a crucial piece of the puzzle in fighting breast cancer. Through its research, the BCRF seeks to answer questions like:

  • Why some families are more susceptible to breast cancer
  • How care for breast cancer patients can be improved
  • How better results can be achieved after a breast cancer diagnosis
  • How breast cancer can be prevented
  • How the basic biology of breast cancer impacts its progression and treatment options

Since its founding in 1993, BCRF has provided critical funding for breast cancer research worldwide. The nonprofit organization works toward advances in tumor biology, genetics, prevention, treatment, metastasis and survivorship.

Boxxy Gifts will be donating 15 percent of its net profits from October’s sales to BCRF to help with its mission. We encourage you to browse our site. If you place an order, you’ll be helping us support potentially groundbreaking breast cancer research that could impact hundreds of thousands of lives.

We also invite you to donate directly to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation. You can link to their donation page here or learn more about their research by clicking here.
