Breast Cancer Awareness Month 2013

There are some illnesses that touch almost everyone in one way or another. October is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month, and we’d like to put forth some statistics. Did you know 1 in 8 women will be diagnosed with breast cancer sometime in their life? And it isn’t just happening to women; 2,150 men are diagnosed annually. Through a lot of public information campaigns, we know more about breast cancer and its staggering effects on patients, family members, and loved ones. Whether you take part in a Race for the Cure, a charity fundraiser, or other awareness campaign, you will begin to notice pink ribbons everywhere you look in the month of October.

Help spread the word on prevention and treatment of this disease, schedule a mammogram for yourself or someone else, partner with a charity, start a fundraiser… help save someone’s life!
