Estee Lauder mark 25 years of their Breast Cancer Campaign

2 min read

Evelyn H Lauder was the visionary behind the Estee Lauder Companies Breast Cancer Awareness Campaign – now the Breast Cancer Campaign – 25 years ago this year.

In 1992 pink ribbons were handed out at the brands’ beauty counter around the world, and a year later, the Breast Cancer Research Foundation (BCRF) was launched – a non-profit organisation to generate funding solely dedicated to breast cancer research.

Evelyn Lauder passed away in 2011, and this year the company honour her legacy and pioneering vision on the 25th anniversary.

This week, Winfield House, the residence of the Ambassador of the United States of America to the Court of St. James’s lit up pink to honour the 25th Anniversary of The Estée Lauder Companies UK’s Breast Cancer Campaign.

Throughout my travels as Global Ambassador for The Estée Lauder Companies’ Breast Cancer Campaign, I’ve seen the hope that advancing breast cancer research is bringing. I’ve seen first-hand the strength of those fighting breast cancer and the strength of friends and family who are supporting them in their fight, and I truly believe that together we can help turn the corner and bring breast cancer to an end – Liz Hurley
