#AOIPinkRibbonCollection is a limited edition of “Breast Cancer Push Away Bra-a 6-step reminder to support Breast Cancer”. The Pink Ribbon Collection is an awareness initiative that empowers women by educating them about early detection through simple Breast self-examination techniques.
About The Pink Ribbon Collection - Fortunately, Breast Cancer is one of the only cancers that can be detected at an early stage through regular self-examination. Early detection helps in increasing the survival rate of the patient. Regular self-observations are fundamental to detecting any differences in the breast’s appearance or feeling a lump. According to a cross sectional study on Knowledge and Practice of Breast Self-examination among Women in Yavataml, India, about 85.71 percent of women were aware of breast self-examine. However, only 38.19 percent were practicing breast self-examination. Another study conducted among 3,041 women in the age group of 18-60 in Kerala by NGO indicates 66.1 percent women being aware of the self-examination check-up and its importance, but 46.4 percent do not practice it. This indicates that the awareness about breast self-examination is not being transformed into practice.
AOI supports every woman to make breast self-examination as a part of their routine. The Pink Ribbon Collection resonates with every woman, to spark conversation and raise important awareness about breast cancer. They took the "Bra - a symbol of breast support and intimacy" and made it centerpiece for an integrated communications campaign to engage women to learn and imprint the 6-step of breast self-examination in a creative way. This also helps the internal thoughts around breast cancer to be discussed externally.
