Sitting at the dinner table, I am surrounded by my family. There are 5 of us. Statistics show that 2 in 5 Canadians will be diagnosed with cancer this year. One in 4 of us will succumb to this disease. A morbid thought, I know, but it brings to life how scary and aggressive this disease is.
October is Breast Cancer Awareness month. After watching a friend go through the experience from discovering a lump to diagnosis to treatement to (thank Goodness) ringing the cancer free bell, I am reminded how important it is to support this cause. Breast Cancer Awareness month is known for its pink fashion. Rather than a fashion statement, it is a sign of support for those who are fighting, searching and hopefully, one day finding a cure.
Ardene x Barbie
This year, Barbie is stepping to the plate, to show her support for Breast Cancer. In collaboration with Arden and the Rethink Breast Cancer Foundation, they have created a limited edition lifestyle collection called Ardene x Barbie. These pink and Barbie inspired outfits are hip, trendy and providing a social message of support for this disease. Their hopes are to bring a fresh and youthful approach to cancer awareness.
Barbie has inspired women for over half a century, and she is a perfect match for Ardene’s mission in fashion, fun and compassion towards an important cause in empowering women. We’re thrilled to be part of this initiative. – Mattel
For the month of October, 100% of net profits of the Ardene x Barbie collection will help support Rethink’s work to empower young people impacted by breast cancer.
The Ardene x Barbie collection includes*:
- Barbie Beanie
- Barbie Lounge Joggers
- Super soft Barbie joggers
- Super soft Barbie Tee Barbie Ringer Tee
- Barbie Boyshorts
- Barbie Bootie Slippers
