October is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month
Imagine this scenario—then ask yourself a simple question… You are enjoying a girl’s night out with eight ladies who are your family members or perhaps friends from high school or college, and one of them ask for the groups attention. She tearfully tells the group that she has been diagnosed with breast cancer and needs their friendship and support more than ever. Everyone’s high-spirited emotions suddenly changed. According to BreastCancer.org “About 1 in 8 U.S. women (about 12%) will develop invasive breast cancer over the course of her lifetime.”
Are you committed to supporting the cure of breast cancer?
The fight is still on, and we must continue to hope and believe that we can win. Read “U.S. Breast Cancer Statistics” posted on BreastCancer.org and share it with your mothers, fathers, sisters, brothers, colleagues, friends, and neighbors. Be strong—wear pink—educate others, and most important, make a commitment to support the cure for breast cancer.
