If you are unable to name someone close to you who has suffered from cancer, then you are a lucky person. According to Medical News Today, 1 in 2 people will develop some form of cancer in their lifetime. Carpet One Floor & Home wants to do their part to beat this horrible disease. They have created a wonderful campaign called Welcome-A-Cure.
Welcome-A-Cure Mats are not only uniquely designed and beautiful, they also offer a huge percentage of proceeds to be donated to finding a cure for breast cancer. Except for skin cancers, breast cancer is the most common cancer in American women. This year alone, there have been more than 240,000 cases of invasive breast cancer diagnosed in women. In men, there have been more than 2,600 cases diagnosed this year. That means that every two minutes, a case is diagnosed. One in eight women will be diagnosed with breast cancer in their lifetime. Of these men and women, more than 40,000 will die from this disease. These statistics are eye opening.
Carpet One Flooring & Home is committed to funding breast cancer research. They understand the seriousness of this awful disease. Twenty-Five percent of the purchase price of each Pink Ribbon welcome mats sold through the Carpet One Floor & Home Welcomes Your Support Campaign is donated to The Breast Cancer Research Foundation. Since it’s inception, the campaign has donated more than 1 million dollars to breast cancer research.
Each Pink Ribbon mat is machine washable, backed with rubber and can be used both inside and out. Each mat is made in the United States and bears the universal symbol for breast cancer awareness, the pink ribbon.
The Breast Cancer Research Foundation is an independent, not for profit organization. Their mission is to advance the world’s most promising research to eradicate breast cancer in our lifetime.
