According to the Susan G. Komen foundation, a woman dies from breast cancer every 69 seconds somewhere in the world. In the U.S., breast cancer is the most common type of cancer in women, with nearly 203,000 new cases diagnosed each year.
A pink ribbon has become the universal symbol to promote awareness of breast cancer. Pink flowers can also be used to show support. Individuals can send pink arrangements and bouquets to those fighting the disease, those who have been impacted by it as well as those who have survived the battle against it.
Many floral retailers will donate a portion of the proceeds from the sale of pink blooms to support breast cancer research. The online flower delivery service Teleflora will donate 15 percent of the purchase price of its Pink Hope bouquet to benefit the Breast Cancer Research Foundation.
And in Virginia, several McDonald Garden Center locations will donate a portion of sales from a selection of pink roses, geraniums, petunias and azaleas to the Susan G. Komen Foundation.
No matter where you buy it, a pink spring flowers bouquet is an ideal way to show anyone who has been impacted by the disease that you care.
