12% of women will experience breast cancer at some point in their lives. Contrary to popular belief, men can also develop breast cancer.
Blizzard is joining the fight against breast cancer by sending in everyone’s favourite Overwatch medic Mercy to help. From May 8-21, Blizzard is selling a legendary quality Mercy skin. The skin features brand new graphics and pink ribbon accents in reference to the pink ribbon that serves as a symbol for breast cancer awareness. The skin costs $14.99 USD/$21.95 AUD. Buyers will be able to purchase the skin for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One. The skin will be bound to one account on one platform of choice.
Blizzard will be donating 100% of the proceeds to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation. No matter how many skins are sold, Blizzard has pledged a minimum donation of $250,000 USD. The Breast Cancer Research Foundation uses funds to support promising research to prevent and cure breast cancer.
