Donate $5 or more now to our QuintilesIMS Colleagues against Cancer initiative and wear denim to work on Tuesday, October 18th as a sign of your support for the fight against breast cancer.

Why it matters: One in eight women will get breast cancer in her lifetime. Next to skin cancer, breast cancer is the most diagnosed cancer among women, and only lung cancer accounts for more deaths in women. About 85% of breast cancers occur in women who have no family history of the disease. If it hasn’t already, there’s a likelihood breast cancer will affect someone among our family members, colleagues or friends.
