Breast Cancer Awareness Month: How will you show your support?

Breast Cancer Awareness MonthDid you know that one in eight women (just under 12%) will be diagnosed with breast cancer in their lifetime? Scary, isn’t it? In fact, breast cancer is the most commonly diagnosed cancer in women and odds are you know someone who has been affected by breast cancer, whether it is a mother, sister, aunt, grandmother, cousin, or friend.

Breast Cancer Awareness Month (NBCAM) is just a few short weeks away. Since its inception 25 years ago, NBCAM has been at the forefront of the fight against breast cancer. However, it is only with the help of individuals, like you, that NBCAM can continue to accomplish so much.

How will you show your support?

Will you wear pink to school like the students of Guin Foss elementary school in California? Last year the student council members asked students to wear pink on Friday, Oct. 19 in observance of Breast Cancer Awareness Month. The reception by the student body was inspiring. Maybe you will you wear pink hair extensions, like youngsters across Hopkins County, to bolster the Pink Hair For Hope campaign which supports the American Cancer Society. Or will you go a step further, like Brookelyn Purser from Cumby Elementary? This inspiring young lady shaved he head to show support for her grandmother, Darlene Flecker, who bravely fought cancer.

“I want to shave my head to go through what she went through,” said Purser.
