Breast Cancer Scrubs are Scrubs with a Purpose

breast cancer scrubsThe American Cancer Society estimates that by the end of 2013, about 40,000 women will die from breast cancer. So although in general, there is a significant decrease in breast cancer cases over the past few years, we cannot stop our battle against this deadly disease. If you’re a nurse, you can show your support by buying breast cancer scrubs.

What are breast cancer scrubs?

These scrubs are sometimes called ‘breast cancer awareness scrubs.’ They are medical scrubs that support a charity whose advocacy is in line with the reduction of breast cancer cases, or with helping patients cope with this disease. So if you buy one of these scrubs, profits will go to any of these charities, depending on which one the scrub manufacturer supports. Some of the charities include the following:

  • National Breast Cancer Foundation
  • Lynn Sage Cancer Research Foundation
  • Breast Cancer Research Foundation
  • Breast Cancer Alliance
  • National Breast Cancer Coalition Fun

These scrubs may also refer to scrubs that have a pink ribbon incorporated in their design. Some of the scrub manufacturers that offer breast cancer scrubs include:

  • Cherokee
  • Dickies
  • Koi Happiness
  • White Swan
  • Peaches
  • Barco Uniforms
  • Uniform Advantage

UA did a good job in creating breast cancer awareness scrubs. From the color combination of the prints up to the design, you’ll definitely be impressed. One of the company’s best-selling srub is their ‘butterfly hope 4-pocket print top.’ In this top, pink breast cancer ribbons are given wings and they come in different sizes. It also has a light pink inset, and the collar is accented with a solid pink color.
