"Every life lost to breast cancer leaves behind a hole that can never be filled again: a wife, a mother, a sister, a friend, an aunt, a grandmother. I'm so grateful for organizations like The Breast Cancer Research Foundation for their efforts to find a cure for this devastating disease, and honored to support breast cancer awareness, detection, and research through Penguin's READ PINK program in 2014. With your help, we can move closer to the day when breast cancer leaves behind only survivors."
In our fifth year of the popular promotional and educational event, Penguin will offer an assortment of 6 bestselling mass market titles and 6 trade titles by some of the publisher's most beloved female authors in a special Read Pink edition. The participating authors are Nora Roberts, Catherine Anderson, Marie Force, Janet Chapman, Lisa Gardner, Jayne Ann Krentz, Jojo Moyes, Karen White, Jennifer Chiaverini, Wendy Wax, and spokesperson Beatriz Williams.
The mass market editions feature Read Pink seals on the cover and additional information in the back of the book, and the trade editions feature stickers on the cover. Both underline Penguin's support of The Breast Cancer Research Foundation's mission and urge readers to become actively involved in supporting the organization.
Join the fight against this deadly disease by making your own donation to this organization today.
The Read Pink program was created by Penguin Publishing Group to promote public awareness of breast cancer, breast cancer research and to support and recognize the contributions of BCRF and its commitment to lead the fight against breast cancer—all in connection with the books you love. As one of the largest English-language trade book publishers in the world, we are committed to our readers who have shared in this struggle. Each year, Penguin's Read Pink donation has sponsored 500 hours of research time.
We invite our readers to join Penguin Publishing Group and The Breast Cancer Research Foundation in spreading the word about BCRF by selecting a copy of these special editions.
The Breast Cancer Research Foundation (BCRF) advances the world's most promising research to eradicate breast cancer in our lifetime. Founded by Evelyn H. Lauder in 1993, BCRF has raised more than $480 million to fuel discoveries in tumor biology, genetics, prevention, treatment, survivorship and metastasis. This year, BCRF invested $45 million in the work of more than 200 researchers at leading medical institutions across six continents. By spending 91 cents of every dollar on research and public awareness, BCRF remains one of the nation's most fiscally responsible charities. BCRF is the only breast cancer organization with an "A+" from CharityWatch, and have been awarded a 4-star rating from Charity Navigator 12 times since 2002. Join us at www.bcrfcure.org
We are proud to offer these bestselling titles by some of our most beloved authorsavailable at these participating retailers.
