Avon Pink Ribbon Pink Hope Collection 2019
Avon Pink Ribbon products offered by Avon Independent Sales Representatives have contributed generously to the breast cancer cause. Since 1992, Avon Pink ribbon sales have raised more than $283 million. With each Avon Pink Ribbon Breast Cancer purchase, 100% of the net profits are donated to help fight breast cancer.
Avon Pink Ribbon sales have helped make possible dramatic changes like these:
- Improved five-year survival rates after diagnosis from an average of 70% in 1992 to greater than 85% today; when caught early, five-year survival can exceed 95%
- Less-invasive surgical procedures
- Improved, targeted treatments for what we have learned are different types of breast cancer
