Avon Breast Cancer Promise

The Avon Breast Cancer Crusade, which launched in 1992, has placed Avon and the Avon Foundation for Women at the forefront of the fight against breast cancer. Our six million Avon independent Sales Representatives around the world not only raise funds for breast cancer programs but also provide a global army of educators, offering information and raising awareness around the world.

 The Avon Breast Cancer Crusade awards funding to beneficiaries ranging from leading cancer centers to community-based grassroots breast health programs to support breast cancer research and access to care. Avon Breast Cancer Crusade funding has helped build a network of programs globally that cover the full spectrum of breast cancer access to care and research. We also fund promising research into the causes of breast cancer and ways to prevent the disease and fund access to screening and treatment, with a special focus on helping the medically underserved, including the disadvantaged, elderly, minorities and those without adequate insurance.

Why focus on breast health education?

Breast cancer knows no gender. But do you know breast cancer is the most common cancer diagnosed in women around the world?  

Approximately two million women are diagnosed with breast cancer every year worldwide.

Although breast cancer awareness is high, not many people take the necessary action. This is due to lack of confidence and knowledge in what action to take and perceived lack of time and urgency. With breast health education we can break down these barriers.

Together we can make a difference



Females are always looking after others. Our maternal instincts drive us to always ensure those around us are well taken care of, but this often mean we neglect the most important person in the room – ourselves.

It took me a while to stop and realize that it is okay to pamper myself, to give myself my utmost attention. Ever since my diagnosis, I’ve learned to discover my body all over again. It started with a simple routine of being aware of how my breasts feels like, noticing if my body feels differently, if there are any physical changes I can see… at the same time, I keep my mind and soul fed with positivity. This mentality really helped me through my early diagnosis, accepting my mastectomy and the rough treatment sessions that came after.

I’m still going through chemo, but I know that this too shall pass and I’m hopeful for a positive recovery.

Girls, don’t wait to love yourself – something as simple as doing  regular breast self-check can help give you peace of mind and benefits your health. Normalize talking about breast health with your family and girlfriends so we can help each other stay safe and live longer, more fulfilled lives.”
