LOUISVILLE, Ky.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Breast cancer is a devastating disease – with over a quarter of a million new cases expected to be diagnosed in women in 2014, breast cancer is far-reaching - impacting women, men and children as well as surrounding family, friends and communities. Today, CafePress (Nasdaq:PRSS) announced the launch of the company’s annual campaign to help find a cure for breast cancer in partnership with The Breast Cancer Research Foundation® (BCRF).
“The Breast Cancer Research Foundation is delighted by CafePress’ continued support for the fight against breast cancer,” said Myra Biblowit, President & CEO, BCRF. “With the generous contributions yielded from these social and sales driven campaigns, BCRF will continue to be able to invest in promising breast cancer research that will lead us to a cure.”
In this eighth year of supporting leading breast cancer organizations (CafePress began supporting the fight against breast cancer in 2006), CafePress honors those who have survived and won their battle while also remembering those we have lost by sharing a few of the countless narratives of survival that have moved and inspired us to continue to make this an annual priority. We encourage you to share these encouraging and beautiful stories of determination, support and reflection.
