Fabletics Partners with the CFDA for Breast Cancer Awareness Month

by

This fall, we’re honored to partner with the Council of Fashion Designers of America (CFDA) to help support their Fashion Targets Breast Cancer initiative. If you haven’t already heard of the CFDA, this respected not-for-profit trade organization is dedicated to strengthening the influence of American Fashion in the global economy, representing a roster of the world’s most elite fashion brands and designers. A major part of the CFDA’s impact comes from their foundation, which not only supports breast cancer awareness, but also raises money for HIV/AIDS and disaster relief.

Over the past twenty-two years, the CFDA’s Fashion Targets Breast Cancer initiative has become one of the world’s most recognized and influential charitable institutions, and has enjoyed a variety of incredible partnerships with leading fashion designers, retailers, photographers and PR firms to name a few. In addition, some of the world’s most famous models and celebs have lent their image to FTBC, and we are thrilled to have our very own Co-Founder Kate Hudson join this respected group as FTBC’s 2016 Ambassador.

A passionate longtime supporter of the cause, Kate inspires us every day to use our creativity and our postion as an influential brand to send impactful, positive messages. She says, “Fabletics is all about empowering women, encouraging them to be their best selves and live their best lives. We really believe in the beauty of feeling healthy and happy, so Fashion Targets Breast Cancer fits perfectly with that message.”

How big of a force is the FTBC in the fight against breast cancer? Well, the organization has raised over $55 million for breast cancer patient care! Specifically, grants from the FTBC Fund help low-income, minority and immigrant women with screening, treatment and support services to help them cope with their cancer diagnoses.

If there’s one fashion rule that’s a constant, it’s that doing good is always in style. For this reason, we designed a limited edition pink outfit with proceeds benefitting breast cancer prevention and awareness. We hope that this month, you don’t just think pink, you wear pink. Together, let’s make a difference, one outfit at a time!

    How about an outfit for Anal Cancer? Our colors are purple and teal green and the dragonfly is our logo. I ask this because do much is done for breast cancer and not enough for our rare cancer. If it were not for Farrah Fawcett many would never have heard of it. I’m a stage 3B survivor and am trying very hard with all my anal buds to spread awareness. This would be a great addition to your collection and help us make others aware. No one likes to say the words let alone have things checked out.

    What about an outfit for Anal Cancer.  Our numbers are increasing globally everyday and although we will never be as large as the breast cancer network, we have feelings too.  Did you know that anal cancer is “STILL” one of the least talked about and the “MOST” stigmatized of all the cancers.  Our logo is the dragonfly because may not live long butt the life it lives leaves us gasping at its beauty and overawed at its tenacity and strength despite how fragile it appears….It reflects the life and spark of all anal cancer patients-those who are in treatment, now NED or those who have sadly died of the disease.  I’m a 12 year survivor of stage lllb anal cancer.

    I would LOVE to see Fabletics not only honor breast cancer patients, but other cancers that we fight for each and everyday, the same grueling treatments, the same fears of uncertainty, the same physical and emotional pain that cancer leaves with us.
    I too am a anal cancer survivor, I, along with so many beautiful courageous anal cancer pts, just diagnosed, in treatment, remission,or that have unfortunately succumbed to this type of cancer, need the notice and support. You can finally give us that support and love by constructing one of your beautiful exercise outfits!! Iam positive it would bring much notice in our colors of teal and purple! 🙂 we will be looking forward in hope.

    Years ago no one would even mention breast or prostate cancer. Today anal cancer is not talked about, yet thousands of women & men are fighting a silent battle with very limited support. So, “Let’s Give Them Something to Talk About”.

    I think it’s great that your money is going to FTBC and that so much awareness is generated during Pinktober. I have Metastatic Breast Cancer. What this means is that even though I had thought I had “beat” my initial breast cancer diagnosis (age 40), come to find out at age 48 that achy back that I thought I got from my karate class was in fact a tumor. Metastatic Breast Cancer (MBC) occurs when the breast cancer cells take up residence in other areas of the body…bone, lungs, liver, brain. 1 out of 8 women (and men) will be diagnosed with breast cancer. Out of those 1 in 8 people, 1/3 or 33 percent!, will develop MBC. There is no cure for MBC, we are lifers: meaning we will be in treatment until the day we die. The ONLY organization in the US that that exclusively funds MBC Research is metavivor.org. There are literally thousands of people dying daily from MBC, we are literally dying for a cure. Even with MBC, I manage to exercise regularly and I get lots of comments about my fabletics gear. I would love to see a large organization such as CFDA really put the money where it’s needed. Having stage 0-3 breast cancer sucks, but it doesn’t kill you. Stage 4 aka MBC is what kills. Please help the 40,000 people that die annually and consider donating some of the proceeds to metavivor.org. Thank you!!

    I’d buy an outfit for lesser known cancers, like Anal Cancer, for sure! But breast cancer has so much recognition and support then lesser known cancers that I’m tired of “seeing pink” for the whole month of October. Not that I’m mean at all believe me.
    Fabletics, Kate Hudson, please make outfits for lesser known cancers!! You don’t even have to give the proceeds away. Keep the profits. The outfits alone will help spread awareness for Anal Cancer and other rare lesser known cancers.
    Anal cancer’s colors are teal and purple and our symbol is a dragonfly. Wouldn’t those colors, and the dragonflies, look good on an outfit? I’d buy several for sure!

    It is exciting to see such support and outreach for the thousands of people suffering from breast cancer—people who just a few years ago were too embarrassed to talk about the type of cancer they had, yet today can wear their color with a sense of community and warmth from being “accepted” as the innocent victims of such a horrible disease. As a stage 3b anal cancer survivor, I still feel the embarrassment and stigma once, but no longer, suffered by those men and women. I dream of a day when anal cancer awareness is just as widespread and accepted as the horrible disease it is and no longer stigmatized, causing countless thousands to no more suffer in silence, fear and embarrassment. Please consider making some outfits for us and other less well known cancers so that we can bring, not only awareness that could save lives (and/or lifetime disabilities) with knowledge and earlier detection, but could raise funds for much needed research into better treatments and, hopefully one day, a cure.

    I am a stage 2 anal cancer survivor.  If you could please make these for this rare cancer, it will help to spread the word about another type of cancer that does exist and is not spoken about.  Our colors are teal purple (and dragonflies).  Thanking you in advance for your consideration.
