For the first time, the National Breast Cancer Foundation (NBCF) has partnered with a breastfeeding product manufacturer – NUK USA — to support its fight against breast cancer. The NUK® brand will donate a portion of sales from its entire breastfeeding product line to NBCF beginning with National Breast Cancer Awareness Month in October 2012 and continuing through December 2013.
This partnership is a natural fit for NUK USA and NBCF. Not only is breastfeeding widely praised for the many health benefits it offers babies and mothers, it may also help women reduce their risk of developing breast cancer by 4% or more, according to the National Cancer Institute. The NUK® brand hopes to inspire and empower mothers to breastfeed for the health of both themselves and their babies.
“We are proud to sponsor with NUK® in promoting the fight against breast cancer and supporting women across the country,” Janelle Hail, President of NBCF, said. “Together we are helping women now by providing free mammograms, education, support, and early detection services.”
NUK® breastfeeding products are designed to make breastfeeding an easier and more comfortable experience for today’s moms and support the fight against breast cancer. The product line includes:
- PUMPS: NUK® Expressive® Single Electric Breast Pump, $56.99 at Walmart– Breastfeeding is best, but not always convenient and possible.
