Because it is Breast Cancer Awareness Month I want to dedicate this post to my Aunt Alice who lost her life to breast cancer whom I miss and love dearly.
“Love many, trust few, and keep God near you.” – Alice Mae Smith
October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month which is an annual campaign targeted to increase awareness of breast cancer.
A pink ribbon brings awareness to breast cancer.
Breast cancer is proven to be an uncontrolled growth of breast cells. This form of cancer is the second most common cancer discovered in American women. Studies prove that about every 1 in 8 women born in the United States will be diagnosed with breast cancer.
The fight against Breast Cancer has many supporters.
$6 billion is set aside for research and awareness campaigns every year.
One organization is the American Cancer Society. The name of the campaign is Making Strides Against Breast Cancer Awareness. This organization is the largest organization with events for breast cancer in the nation. Every event is encouraging and inspiring to honor those who have battled with breast cancer. This event was put together as a move- along -a -thon to move the fight against breast cancer forward. This organization is founded on passion. Passion drives them to walk miles and miles to fight against the breast cancer and to fight for those many have lost to breast cancer.
This organization works everyday to make a difference to break the silence of breast cancer by spreading awareness and encouraging people to get involved and join the fight.
This organization has been saving lives for 100 years. The more walkers they get to join the fight, the more survivors we have celebrating their birthdays. American Cancer Society spreads awareness by providing helpful tips to develop prevention.
