ghd has supported breast cancer charities globally for 18 years, raising over $22 million* to date. And for the past two years, the company has been on a mission to empower young women across the world to start regularly checking their breasts with its TAKE CONTROL NOW campaign.
Why does ghd want to continue to support this cause? Breast cancer is the most common cancer for Kiwi women.** Breast cancer can take away two physical features that can powerfully shape how women see themselves, their breasts, and their hair. As an evolution of 2021’s successful campaign, the 2022 collection features the campaign messaging TAKE CONTROL NOW on the limited edition styling tools, providing women with a regular reminder to touch and check their boobs for signs of breast cancer Every. Single. Month.
“Early detection is everything,” Lorna Subritzky, Breast Cancer Foundation NZ Ambassador says. “Through self-checks and mammograms, my DCIS cancer was caught early. Recently I found a lump in my other breast during a self-check, it turned out to be a tumour. Again, I caught it early enough to save my life. They say the lightning doesn’t strike twice. It can, but early detection can be the difference that can save your life.”
Joyful Body and Breast Positivity
Every. Single. Month. is the core message of this breast cancer awareness-driving campaign. Having the confidence to action these important self-check steps as early as possible will help make all the difference. With a lack of breast checking confidence, women are less likely to self-check and those who feel awkward or embarrassed about checking their breasts may delay seeing their doctor if they notice a new or unusual change. Big, perky, saggy, tiny, small, large, two boobs, no boobs? Still check. ghd wants women to start talking about their breast health, not their cup size, and to feel confident and educated on how to check EVERY. SINGLE. MONTH
- 2.3 million women globally are diagnosed with Breast cancer every year.
- 3,500 women in New Zealand are diagnosed with breast cancer every year — that’s 9 women per day.
- 1 in 6 Kiwi women under 45 has admitted to never checking their breasts for changes.
