Breast Cancer is the most commonly diagnosed form of cancer in the world, with one woman diagnosed every three minutes in the U.S. alone. It's a disease that touches the lives of millions every year, and to help combat it, we created The Avon Global Breast Cancer Crusade. Over the past 20 years, we've been steadfast in our support of the women and men affected by breast cancer through funding programs that enable patient access to quality care and by awarding research grants to help find a cure.
One in four women in the U.S. will become a victim of abuse in her life, with teens and young women being particularly vulnerable. It's an epidemic that's widely felt but rarely discussed -- something we seek to change with the Speak Out Against Domestic Violence initiative. Through this program, we're working to build awareness, to educate, and to provide direct service programs to help break the cycle of partner abuse.
