Hellotittie is a women empowerment brand that loves giving back to Breast Cancer. It's important young millennials are aware of what breast cancer is and know the statistics. It's very common in women and very rare in men, with only about 2,190 diagnoses each year. We decided to put on an art show with a six artists; either someone from their family or a friend has breast cancer or had breast cancer and they expressed it in their artwork. Below you will find a recap from our event.
One piece of artwork from each artist that participated in the 'Paint it Pink' for Breast Cancer Awareness can be seen below.
