The brand’s annual campaign aims to generate support and awareness for BCRF’s life-saving research
COLUMBUS, Ohio, Sept. 25, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — Each October Lane Bryant has the honor of supporting the Breast Cancer Research Foundation’s (BCRF) mission to prevent and cure breast cancer by advancing the world’s most promising research. Thanks to invaluable customer and associate support, Lane Bryant has contributed over $3.4 million dollars to BCRF since 2016.
The contributions raised by Lane Bryant’s annual BCRF campaign fund thousands of hours of critical research, specifically a long-term study of mammography screenings by Wendie A. Berg, MD, PhD. Dr. Berg’s focus aims to improve the precision of breast cancer detection, inspired by her own family history (and personal journey) with breast cancer. This work is crucial for women who are deemed high-risk for breast cancer or have dense breast tissue.
“When found early, through screening, breast cancer is usually easily treated,” said Dr. Berg. “With support from Lane Bryant and the Breast Cancer Research Foundation, my team has been conducting a multi-year study of contrast-enhanced mammography (CEM) to screen women with a personal history of breast cancer. Women should be aware that there are additional options for breast cancer screening, including CEM.”
Lane Bryant will highlight the importance of funding research in this year’s BCRF-dedicated campaign that debuts today, inviting customers to join the cause. The brand will contribute 10% of the purchase price (up to $200 thousand dollars) of a BCRF pink capsule collection comprised of intimate apparel, LIVI activewear, and accessories. Additionally, on October 7, Lane Bryant will donate $1 dollar per bra sold (up to $10 thousand dollars) during an exclusive Shop & Support event taking place in store and online.
