October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, and Rihanna is bringing attention to this issue with her Savage X Fenty lingerie line. Breast cancer affects about 12% of women+, or about 1 in 8 women in the United States. The biggest risk factor? Just being born with breasts.
Still, no matter where folks are during their breast cancer journeys, they deserve to feel like the fly, sexy powerhouses that they are. For BCA Month, Savage X Fenty is celebrating survivors and thrivers with the Savage X Thrivers collection. Thrivers are "young women living with aggressive forms of breast cancer," as they wrote on their Instagram. And most importantly, the brand is letting thrivers tell their own story about living the illness and still slaying everyday.
