We are entering our fourteenth year supporting those who have been affected by breast cancer with our $10 PINK HAIR & PINK FEATHER EXTENSIONS FUNDRAISER.
Now through October 31st, for a minimum $10 donation, visit any of our locations to receive a pink hair or feather extension as part of our Care with Pink Hair breast cancer research fundraiser. Donations are also accepted online. All money raised will be donated to the American Cancer Society through Snohomish County Making Strides Against Breast Cancer.
Elle Marie has been using pink hair extensions since 2007 to help fund raise for those affected by breast cancer. Guests and staff proudly display their support for breast cancer research by wearing pink hair extensions all month long. Requesting a small donation of just $10, to date Elle Marie is proud to have raised over $25,900 towards this important cause.
According to the American Cancer Society (ACS), breast cancer is second only to skin cancer as the most common cancer in the United States among women. It follows lung cancer as the second leading cause of cancer death in women. About 1 in 8 women will have invasive breast cancer sometime during her life. Breast cancer death rates have been declining, possibly due to the result of early detection and better treatment. At this time there are more than 3.8 million breast cancer survivors in the United States. This includes women still being treated and those who have completed treatment. About 281,550 women will be diagnosed with invasive breast cancer in 2021. About 49,290 new cases of ductal carcinoma in situ (DCIS) will be found. Sadly, breast cancer will claim the lives of about 43,600 women this year.
