- About 1 in 8 U.S. women (about 12%) will develop invasive breast cancer over the course of her lifetime.
- In 2019, an estimated 268,600 new cases of invasive breast cancer are expected to be diagnosed in women in the U.S., along with 62,930 new cases of non-invasive (in situ) breast cancer.
- About 2,670 new cases of invasive breast cancer are expected to be diagnosed in men in 2019. A man’s lifetime risk of breast cancer is about 1 in 883.
It is hard to find someone who doesn’t know of at least one person stricken with breast cancer. Awareness and early detection are the two key factors that can further reduce the incidence of this horrible disease. Our Breast Cancer Awareness pen was conceived just for that reason. Proceeds from this pen will go directly to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation, a 501 (c)(3) non-profit organization.
The Breast Cancer Research Foundation is committed to achieving prevention and a cure for breast cancer. They provide critical funding for cancer research worldwide to fuel advances in tumor biology, genetics, prevention, treatment, metastasis and survivorship.

This beautiful pen features a pink breast cancer ribbon with an elegant clip with pink crystals. The body of the pen is made of crushed pink acrylic. The swell near the tip is called a "grip swell" which enables the user to hold the pen with a lighter grip, thereby reducing fatigue. This feature also helps those with arthritis minimizing gripping discomfort.
