All the best,

Many of us have known a loved one or friend who has battled this terrible disease. Osprey has teamed up with this world-renowned organization to help fight the causes of this terrible disease as well as the battle to find a cure. Osprey has made a special addition Verve 10 for order before January 31st and delivered in February. This special limited edition (1500 will be produced) Verve 10 women’s hydration pack has been produced in Amethyst with a front pocket screen of the iconic Breast Cancer Fund prayer flags that carry messages of love and healing and help to support breast cancer prevention.

4 dollars from each pack with a minimum of $5,000 dollars will be donated to the Breast Cancer Fund. Contact Jon for more details and how to order.

Here are a few facts about Breast Cancer;
• About 1 in 8 women in the United States (between 12 and 13%) will develop invasive breast cancer over the course of her lifetime
• In 2010, an estimated 207,090 new cases of invasive breast cancer are expected to be diagnosed in women in the U.S., along with 54,010 new cases of non-invasive (in situ) breast cancer
• About 39,840 women in the U.S. are expected to die in 2010 from breast cancer
• More than 1 in 4 cancers in women (about 28%) are breast cancer
