DID YOU KNOW?
Did you know that Ulta Beauty, the company that owns more than 1000 beauty stores in the world, is one of the leading donors of the Breast Cancer Research Foundation? As a way of giving back to their customers, Ulta Beauty has become active in funding foundations concerning women, like the BCRF, Dress for Success, and more. The Illinois-based company entered a partnership with BCRF in 2009 and has since raised $22 million for the organization. In 2016, the company created the Ulta Beauty Charitable Foundation to better organize the aid it provides for the women empowerment group, Dress for Success, which became the company's partner in 2017, and BCRF.
The help of big companies like Ulta Beauty to breast cancer research is greatly appreciated since the disease is still the most common cancer that affects women worldwide, despite it being one of the oldest diseases in history. The Edwin Smith Papyrus, an ancient medical text dated to be around 1600 BCE, describes 8 cases that can be called breast cancers, though the physicians of the era said "there is no treatment" for the disease. Throughout history, medical experts tried to treat breast cancer, including in 548 AD, when a doctor named Aetios of Amida performed a mastectomy on Eastern Roman Empire empress, Theodora. The medieval era and the early modern period improved survival rates for breast cancer when surgeons began to understand the human body better. The development in science and technology certainly improved treatment and prevention of breast cancer, as a study from the American Cancer Society stated that the mortality rate of women who suffered from breast cancer has decreased 40% in the last 25 years.
