In fact, it’s estimated that 75 Canadians were diagnosed with breast cancer every day last year, according to the Canadian Cancer Society .

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, a chance to spread awareness and support for breast cancer research. And, in honour of the month-long initiative, many brands release special-edition pieces that see a portion of the proceeds donated to the cause.
