October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

Breast cancer is the most common cancer in Canadian women. According to Health Canada, one in eight women will develop it during their lifetime. That’s why, for Breast Cancer Awareness Month, brands have partnered up with different organizations dedicated to improving women’s health. If you’re looking to shop this month, here are 11 products whose proceeds will go toward supporting women with breast cancer.
