Support The Most Diagnosed Cancer in Latinas

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, which is an annual campaign to increase awareness of the disease. Breast cancer is the most commonly diagnosed cancer in Latinas. Even though Latinas have lower breast cancer rates than white women, they are more likely to be diagnosed at a later stage, when the cancer is harder to treat.

As a reminder starting at age 40, women should have mammograms every 1-2 years. However, women at any age can request a mammogram based on family history and if you find any unusual bumps during self-examination.

Gorgeous Mexican actress Kate del Castillo is the face of Avon’s new fragrance Flor Alegria. The fragrance was created by renowned Mexican perfumer Rodrigo Flores-Roux. Rodrigo says he created this with the Latina women in mind. He had the image of our smile, carefree sparkle, fun personality and our “Joie de vivre” while creating this gorgeous scent. I believe he nailed it. Flor Alegria has a sweet floral scent that will make you feel energetic, excited and inspired to welcome the world with a smile.

Flor Alegria exudes optimism, vitality and a joyful spirit. It reflects the way we are.” – Kate del Castillo

Flor Alegria is packaged in a bright colorful bottle and is adorned with a beautiful vibrant flower embellishment, which adds to the cheerful and magical joy of the fragrance.
