With one in eight women being diagnosed with breast cancer in their lifetime, according to the American Cancer Society, Advocate Health Care wanted to create something big to raise awareness. Advocate’s Support Bra is a symbol for women to join the conversation about their breast health – from the importance of prevention and early detection to encouraging them to make their yearly mammogram appointments.
The Support Bra also symbolizes the support women need after a breast cancer diagnosis and all the way through their journey. It tells an uplifting story and shows how Advocate supports not only women, but their family and friends, and community partners. Show your support by taking a photo with the Support Bra and Advocate will donate $1 to the American Cancer Society. Click here to learn more.
