We are entering the month of October with the strength of a Ninja warrior in the fight against breast cancer. This month SleepOvation is supporting the cause by donating 5% of all October sales to Breast Cancer Charities in collaboration with our favorite Ninja, Cara Poalillo of the Ninjababes and Ninja for a Cure.
Ninja for a cure, a fundraising partner with BCRF (Breast Cancer Research Foundation), is a foundation established by Henry Ferrarin, a youth basketball coach and a 3-time competitor on NBC's hit TV show American Ninja Warrior. In 2012, his mother was diagnosed with an aggressive form of breast cancer. Thankfully due to early detection Henry’s mother received immediate treatment and underwent a double mastectomy, followed by chemotherapy. The cancer was aggressive, but henry’s mother is now cancer-free. Since then Henry has established ‘Ninja for a Cure’ to bring awareness. You can learn more about ‘Ninja for a Cure’ by visiting http://www.ninjaforacure.com/.
According to the “Breast Cancer Research Foundation” breast cancer is the most common cancer affecting women worldwide, and it is the second most common cancer overall. There has been a 20 percent increase in occurrences of breast cancer across the world since 2008. It is imperative that people continue to invest in research to understand breast cancer and hopefully find ways to detect, prevent, and improve the outcome of those affected by breast cancer. Although breast cancer is most common amongst women, we will see approximately 2,670 men diagnosed with breast cancer and about 271,270 women in 2019 alone.
We are so honored to be able to collaborate with Ninja for a Cure in support of Breast Cancer Awareness month. Here at SleepOvation we will be contributing a 5% of all October sales from Tuesday October 1st - Thursday, October 31st to ‘Breast Cancer Charities’.
