September is Ovarian Cancer Awareness Month, and we are bringing you high-quality, hand-knit items, of which HALF of the purchase price will be donated to the Rivkin Center. The Rivkin Center works with leading cancer research centers, and last year funded a program to get a better understanding of how we can survive this deadly disease. They have found that early detection is the key to survival, because left undetected, the 5-year survival rates are shockingly low, but the survival rate of women who are diagnosed before cancer spreads outside of the ovaries is a whopping 92%*.
We are an industry dense with women, and we want you be aware of the symptoms. For yourself, for your loved ones, and for all women. Please share this information with the women in your life!
