PINK OCTOBER WHAT IS IT?
Pink October is an action created by the association 'Le Cancer du Sein, Parlons-en!', the first association in France dedicated to breast cancer and early detection.
Founded in 1994 by the Estée Lauder France group and Marie Claire magazine which have joined forces to become involved in the fight against breast cancer. Each year, their action and mobilization are reinforced with the intention of informing more and more women about the importance of early detection. Indeed, it is by making the sad fact that one woman in eight is at risk of developing breast cancer that the association warns about the need for early detection that increases the chances of healing and reduces the aggressiveness of treatments.
In October, the association proposes to fight against breast cancer by informing, dialoguing and mobilizing even more through Pink October. The mission of this action is the opportunity, during a given month, to highlight those who fight against this disease in order to increase the number of people informed and raise awareness to raise even more funds to help researchers, caregivers. To convince women of the primordial role of early detection and to advance research, that is the vocation of this campaign and the Association.
THE PINK RIBBON, INTERNATIONAL SYMBOL FOR THE FIGHT AGAINST BREAST CANCER
It is to the editor of the American magazine Self that we owe the famous pink ribbon that she asked, at the beginning of the 90s, to Estée Lauder to distribute in her New York stores. The success will be even more important as the ribbons will finally be distributed across the whole country thanks to the intervention of Evelyn Lauder, herself a breast cancer survivor.
Today, wearing a pink ribbon marks the commitment to the fight against breast cancer and solidarity with the patients.

HELP US TO SUPPORT THE HOPE ASSOCIATION
Cristal Spa, joined this year the Pink October operation and supports the Hope association launched by Annabel Brourhant and Nicolas Chopin, oncologist surgeon at Léon Bérard Hospital in Lyon.
The association was born from the observation that one woman in two is affected by more or less deep depression after treatment and that few actions set up to accompany these women to recovery.
It is thus around the art therapy and the equitherapy that the association Hope accompanies the women to help them to rebuild, to bounce back and to share with other women having lived the same experiences. To find out more about the association, go directly to the website: https://hope-association.com/
