IDG is doing its part to raise awareness for breast cancer this month. Check out our educational breast cancer related inflatables. Every year, the month of October is dedicated to the campaign to raise awareness of the disease. “More women are diagnosed with breast cancer than any other cancer, besides skin cancer”. An estimated 42,260 deaths resulting from breast cancer this year (cancer.net). Therefore, please help to continue to spread awareness of this disease. In addition, join the cause by donating to the National Breast Cancer Foundation by following this link and clicking “Donate Now”. The IDG team has worked with different groups to create educational inflatables that address breast cancer and other diseases. Contact IDG today to learn more!
Inflatable Educational Breast Tunnel
IDG works with Interactive Exhibits to create educational medical exhibits using inflatables. For example, as you can see in the picture below, the “AmeriBreasts” are walk-through breast cancer exhibits. IDG and Interactive Exhibits give you the opportunity to participate in an immersive educational experience about breast cancer. The features of the custom inflatable exhibit include “inflammatory breast cancer, various stages of breast cancer 1 to 4, blood vessels, lymph nodes, and screening and early detection information” (interactiveexhibits.com). In addition, the inflatable exhibit stands tall enough for adults to comfortably walk through and view the various features. The outside of the inflatable is the outside view of a woman, with a white shirt on and the pink breast cancer awareness ribbon donned. Also, the pictures below show how event-goers participate in the educating lessons of the inflatable breast cancer exhibit.
According to a local Philidelphia news site, Phillyvoice, “Inflatable breasts draw eyes, people to wellness event”. The large inflatable is impossible to miss when walking by. Also, the exhibit is a very effective way of spreading awareness about the disease. One event attendee told Phillyvoice, “It’s amazing how you can look (inside)“. That kind of reaction is what we’re looking for! The eye-catching exterior of the inflatable draws people in, and the interactivity and educational lessons keep people there! Therefore, the AmeriBreasts inflatable breast cancer exhibit is perfect for events such as breast cancer awareness month events, health museums, hospital conferences or promotions, and more!

Help the thousands affected by this disease, spread breast cancer awareness, one inflatable at a time!
The Pink Ribbon
The pink ribbon has become the universal symbol of breast cancer. Wearing the ribbon is a simple way of showing love and support for those battling breast cancer and hoping for a brighter future (nationalbreastcancer.org). The ribbon’s origin is connected to Charlotte Hayley, who had battled breast cancer. “She introduced the concept of a peach-colored breast cancer awareness ribbon. She attached them to cards saying, ‘The National Cancer Institute’s annual budget is 1.8 billion US dollars, and only 5 percent goes to cancer prevention. Help us wake up our legislators and America by wearing this ribbon.'” (pinkribbon.org). Self Magazine’s Alexandra Penney, along with others interested in promoting breast cancer awareness with a ribbon later turned the peach-colored ribbon into the bright pink we know today. Though the pink color has not been around as long, the ribbon has been a universal symbol of awareness and support for 30 years now!
As you can see in the picture above, Inflatable Design Group does its part. Along with educational breast cancer inflatable exhibits, IDG created a giant inflatable pink ribbon. To add to the movement of wearing a small ribbon, the IDG team created a 10-foot-tall custom inflatable ribbon. The size alone is eye-catching, and the bright pink makes the inflatable impossible to miss. What better way to grab people’s attention than with a giant inflatable ribbon promoting breast cancer awareness? So, check out IDG’s eye-catching inflatable shapes and logos page for more!

Cancer Treatment Centers of America Bracelet
The talented team at Inflatable Design Group created a giant bracelet to promote the Cancer Treatment Centers of America (CTCA). The CTCA is a network of five comprehensive cancer care and research centers and three outpatient care centers that serve cancer patients throughout the United States. Among other diseases, the CTCA has many resources to not just diagnose, but treat those affected by breast cancer. So, should someone choose to become a patient, the CTCA offers multiple options for treatment. These include surgery, chemotherapy, hormone therapy, and others. So, even though the CTCA did not have our IDG team include all this information on the bracelet, the organization received effective promotion. Our large bracelet included the CTCA logo with the name, “Cancer Treatment Centers of America” printed largely and clearly in the center. Also, underneath the logo and name, IDG printed the slogan, “Winning the fight against cancer, every day”.
This bracelet proved was an effective form of promotion and also helped promote cancer awareness to all those who came in contact with it. Also, you can see other custom inflatables like this on our product replicas page! In addition, all IDG products are made with durable, weather-resistant material. Therefore, the CTCA has the option to utilize this promotional product well into the future in any form of event. Indoor, outdoor, rain or shine, Inflatable Design Group’s products will stay strong. Check out more information about our high-quality inflatables here! So, as the slogan states, the fight against cancer is going on every day. Join the battle by spreading awareness with IDG.

How You Can Help
Every October is Breast Cancer Awareness month. However, fight against disease is important year-round. So, here are five ways you can show support for breast cancer awareness, according to the National Foundation for Cancer Research: (1) Wear pink during the month of October, specifically on October 18th. This helps spread awareness and get people talking. (2) Help a cancer patient. If someone in your life is suffering from any cancer, do your best to help them out when you can. (3) Educate yourself (and others). There is a lot of information on breast cancer and its effects, but not everyone knows about it. Let’s change that! (4) Spend wisely. Make sure you know where your money is going when making donations. (5) Directly fund research initiatives. The National Foundation for Cancer Research has more information on this here.
